Our business and global footprint

Master Drilling comprises two main operational sub-groups – South African operations and international operations. The South African operations are managed from Fochville through three subsidiary companies – Master Drilling South Africa (the raisebore business), Master Drilling Exploration (the slim drilling business) and Drilling Technical Services (responsible for the engineering support for our raisebore and slim drilling businesses in South Africa and abroad).

The international raisebore operations as managed abroad include entities in Latin America, Africa and Europe.  The Chilean, Peruvian, Brazilian, and Mexican entities maintain both operational and engineering facilities. The international footprint also now includes operations in Guatemala, Ecuador, DRC and Ireland.

Group engineering support is also provided from South Africa and China, servicing several international locations.”
