Meet Yellow Thunder.
She drills 80 wells per year.

No, she’s not a person, but she’s got quite a personality. Each year, Yellow Thunder drills 80 wells and Tweets GPS updates along the way.

No, she’s not a person, but she’s got quite a personality. Two years ago, we bought this drilling rig for our partners in Ethiopia. And it Tweets GPS updates with every well it drills. Through Pipeline, we’ll fund more equipment like this to build the capacity of our local partners on the ground.
