About Us

As the name indicates, Rodgers Technology is built on the life experience, problem-solving skills, and visionary ability of Troy Rodgers.

 

“My experience in the oil industry started in 1973 with Otis Engineering in Lindsay, Oklahoma.   My first experience was as a wireline helper.  After 6 months, I was selected to attend the Otis Wireline training school in Dallas, Texas. I later expanded my experience to include down hole packers and bridge plugs and ultimately moved into conventional cable snubbing.

 

In 1977 I started snubbing for Cudd Pressure Control in the hydraulic snubbing field.  By 1978 I was promoted to the snubbing manager of the company over snubbing and well control. I held that position until 1980 when they sold the business.

I started Oklahoma Hydraulic Well Control in January, 1980.  The company’s first success was the building of a 150 snubbing unit and the addition of  two 150’s, one 225, and a 340 for a fleet of 5 units.  Other services included wireline, packers, and downhole tools.  We worked for major oil companies including Phillips Petroleum, Amoco, Cotton Petroleum, and Kaiser-Francis.  I assisted Red-Adair in numerous blow-out and well control situations in the US and overseas.  The total employee count was 48 during the peak of the oilfield boom.

 

In 2006, I reentered the oil industry after being asked to go offshore as a consultant to certify a 150 unit as operational. After returning to Houston I drew my version of the new Versa-Rig unit.  The name reflected the flexibility in servicing on shore or off shore completion and well service.

 

I formed an LLC to manufacture and test the design.  In January 2008, we took the unit on site in the Piceance Basin of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.   I modified the unit to meet the customer needs and was able to successfully complete operations on 32 multi-pad wells.

 

I continue to find new solutions to old problems with the most recent design (patent pending) for a caustic soda mixer.” 

 

Troy came from a large family of 13 children and has been supported by his immediate family and siblings in allowing him to accomplish his goals.
