Bin Ham for Oil Driling (BHOD) was established in 1982 and entered the field of Drilling and Exploration in Abu Dhabi Emirate in favour of Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO).
BHOD commenced its operation on 6th October, 1982 by operating and maintaining two Hoists in favour of ADCO, ADCO-I at Asab Field and ADCO-II at Bab and Bu-hasa Fields.
Although the two Hoists were nearly 10 years old, we managed to operate them immediately the same day after signing the contract this was result of the long experince of our staff.
It is neccessary to mention that these two Hoists were operated by an English company specialized in Oil Drilling called "GEOPROSCO". So, we are the first national company to take this kind of responsibilities and to execute the schedule of running pumps and its services for injecting water into the peripheral Wells.
The whole programme was implemented without any complaints and with great enthusiasm. The job was administered and accomplished by our establishment as planned by ADCO who thanked us for our accuracy.
The time of opertating these two pulling Hoists coincided with our plans to supply ADCO with two Onshore Rigs after a great compitition between National and International companies who had a sound and long expericence in this field. Our company was awarded this tender on 17th August, 1982, and before this we contacted the international companies which are world wide known in supplying Rigs to manufacture these two Oil Rigs according to ADCO's specification.
