With over 30 years of experience, Ric was introduced to the oil and gas industry when he started working for the family business back in 1990. After five years performing oilfield maintenance and heavy equipment operating at DWC, Ric spent four years operating sour gas processing facilities within Alberta. This experience allowed Ric to gain intimate knowledge of the inner workings of gas processing facilities and processes. He also spent time operating onsite N2 generating equipment for the newly executed Under Balance Horizontal Drilling Practices. It was in this position that Ric gained vast knowledge of onsite and down hole operations. In 2000, Ric returned to DWC to take the position of Operations Manager. In 2005 the Company and assets were purchased from Ric's father Richard (Dick) Fairclough and Ric became the sole owner operator of DWC.
