Easternwell supports Oil Patch Reunion

Easternwell supported the 2018 Oil Patch Reunion, which provided an opportunity for anyone working in the oil patch to catch up with friends and reconnect with former colleagues from across the industry.

The event was held at The Woolshed at Jondaryan with more than 150 people joining in the festivities which included horse and cart rides, market stalls and steam engine and machinery displays.

The Woolshed at Jondaryan is the oldest and largest operational shearing shed in the world. It is a monument from the pioneer days of settlement and celebrates the rich cultural heritage and pastoral history of the Darling Downs region.

The fully-catered all day event is thought to be the first of its kind in Australia to involve stakeholders from all parts of the industry including clients, contractors, suppliers and support staff.

Easternwell employees attended the event with their families including Rig Manager Johnny Visser and his father John Visser who used to work in the oil patch.

Easternwell General Manager Operations Luke Smith, who attended with his family, said: “It was great to reminisce about old times and rekindle old friendships.”

“It was also great to see the younger generation in the oil patch who are working hard to make a name for themselves in the industry.”

It is likely the 2018 Oil Patch Reunion will become a bi-annual event. For future updates follow the Oil Patch Reunion Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AustraliaDrillReunion2018/
