E M I JERICHO SERVICES THE WILLISTON BASIN/BAKKEN SHALE FA L L / W I N T E R 2 0 1 2 • Dickinson, N.D. “We don’t think of ourselves as just vendors; we are in partnerships with customers.” // CHRIS KEETON, president AWARE OF THE TRENDS With offices in Oklahoma and North Dakota, Jericho’s operations differ in each market it serves. In North Dakota, its primary services are water hauling and renting of frac tanks. The company also provides water hauling and frac tanks in Oklahoma, but soil farming and spreading mud and soil from trucks are the company’s primary services in that region. “Soil farming is not allowed in North Dakota because they don’t yet have the rules and regulations in place to oversee that,” Keeton says. “But as the North Dakota market evolves, those services will probably come into play there, too, because economics suggest that soil farming will come to pass in North Dakota.” The company stays on top of customer expectations to be sure they are providing the right quality of service. Jericho’s people talk to customers daily to develop relationships with them that go beyond simple customer/vendor relationships. “We don’t think of ourselves as just vendors; we are in partnerships with customers,” Keeton says. “We establish mutually beneficial arrangements.” As the oil fields evolve, Jericho tries to be proactive and look at what will be going on a year out. Preparing for changes is crit- Jericho Services provides mud hauling, water hauling, soil farming, pipe hauling, frac tanks and mud pits.. Leading By Example Jericho Services has grown to serve two markets by treating customers, employees and vendors with respect. [ BY ERIC SLACK ] A provider of mud hauling, water hauling, soil farming, pipe hauling, frac tanks and mud pits to the oil industry, Jericho Services is guided by biblical principles that govern how it treats customers, emPROFILE ployees and vendors. President Chris Keeton describes Jericho as a decent-sized mom-and-pop oilfield trucking company that brings integrity to the market. “We treat our customers and employees with integrity,” he says.
