Johnson Drilling is a well established and highly regarded family business within the industry.

Johnson Drilling originated within a partnership of Morgan and Johnson operated from 1958 – 1971 in the Injune district, and then expanding into the Roma district and beyond.

From 1971 – 1982 Stan Johnson (known to many as Dooley) and his wife Jean Johnson continued solo in their venture and operated the company as SJ & MJ Johnson.
