Bandera oil tools began business in south Texas in 1995 buying, selling and repairing drill bits. The company started to expand and opened in Venezuela in 1997 in Maracaibo serving clients like Conoco Phillips, Texaco, PDVSA and Total. Bandera also penetrated the Mexican market  through some of our main clients, Precision Drilling and Schlumberger in Reynosa.

Bandera oil tools  established its business here in Trinidad and Tobago in September 2002 with our main service of drill bits to the oil&gas market to give the same high quality service which the company was built on.
