About Us


Norm Bliesner

Some people say that drilling fluid flows in Norm’s veins. He has been involved in the drilling industry since 1968 when he began as a driller’s offsider with the (then) Irrigation and Water Supply Commission.

He holds a Class 3 Driller’s Licence and the expertise he has gained over a forty-year period in the drilling industry is extremely valuable in his own business and in the consultancy field. He has been a member of the Australian Drilling Industry Association for over 20 years.

Jared Bliesner
Business Manager

Jared grew up among the machinery, mud and mechanics of the Ingham Drilling workshops and sites.

Following his stint at university, he headed to the city for seven years where he was fortunate enough to have a mentor who taught him a range of business skills and encouraged him to utilize them.

As a consequence, he returned to Ingham Drilling in 2005 to step into the challenging role of manager and logistics controller.

Jason Younger
Head Drillers

Jason came on board in 2007. He has completed further extensive training since joining Ingham Drilling and has gained his Driller’s Licences and several competencies. Jason has obtained his Class 2 Driller’s Licence.
