Farell Moughon, Pride, recognized for committee leadership

Posted on 05 February 2009

In probably what was a first at an IADC conference and certainly a rousing kick-off to the morning program, Mr Moughon accepted his award by taking his guitar and singing on stage. As an accomplished guitarist, he often puts new lyrics to familiar tunes to sing at safety meetings. At the HSE&T Conference, he took the familiar tune of Western song “Rawhide” and substituted its lyrics with an innovative rendition promoting safety and the use of the STOP program.

Due to copyright reasons, Drilling Contractor is unable to post a recording of Mr Moughon’s performance.
