Stabil Drill Supports the International Lifeline Fund

Broussard, La., (Feb. 25, 2010) — Stabil Drill, a Superior Energy Services company, heard about problems a nonprofit group in Lira, Uganda, was having drilling water wells last year.

Igor Markov, who works in the oil and gas industry, and his wife are among those assisting with humanitarian efforts in Africa through a group called the International Lifeline Fund, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to reduce human suffering through programs and activities that have the greatest impact at the lowest possible cost.

Working with Markov, Stabil Drill agreed to manufacture drilling equipment and provide supplies for a rig the group was using to drill for water.

"By donating equipment such as a saver sub, drill pipe protective compounds and thread protectors, Stabil Drill was able to help in a small way," said Roder Russo of Stabil Drill.

A saver sub, donated by Stabil Drill is being installed, which will extend the life of the rotating head.

Drilling water wells and proper sanitation and hygiene are critical components of ILF's clean water program. According to ILF, Stabil Drill's donation is helping to extend the life and reliability of a drilling rig that allows people in the war-torn region of Uganda to have access to clean, safe water.
