History | Moore Well Drilling

John “Hap” Moore worked for several years with a plumbing company and during his employment watched with interest, several wells being drilled by a company from Nova Scotia. He decided then, to go into business for himself.

He envisioned how improvements could be made in the drilling process, and, being an accomplished mechanist, built his own drill rig and started his company in 1945.

At first, he worked on his own, and when his sons Dale and Harold were old enough, they worked with him and his company, John Moore and Sons was created. During his life he made four drill rigs that were, in many ways, better than the factory-made rigs of the day. When the business was begun, cable tool rigs were commonly used.

When John Moore Sr. retired, Harold continued drilling under the John Moore and Sons name. Dale started the Moore Well Drilling Inc. business in the mid 1970’s. In order to continue to provide good customer service, the company moved to an air rotary rig. Dale bought Moore Well Drilling’s first air rotary rig in the late 1970’s.

In 1990, that rotary drill was upgraded to a brand new air rotary. By the mid 1990’s, in order to keep up with customer demand, Moore Well Drilling Inc. purchased a second air rotary rig. In early 2000, one of the rigs was again upgraded to a much larger air rotary rig. The company now has the capability of drilling well beyond 600 feet for 12” and larger holes. As well, in 2000, Moore Well Drilling Inc. moved to its current location by Sears and Atlantic Cat. We are proud to be constantly upgrading our equipment and methods.
