Founded in 1968 as Pioneer Drilling Company, Pioneer Energy Services provides land contract drilling and production services. Pioneer drills in the United States and Columbia and services oil and gas producing regions in the United States and the Gulf of Mexico with state-of-the-art industry equipment. Pioneer shares files and collaborates with many partners to direct drilling production for oil and natural gas.


Pioneer Energy Services provides contract drilling and production services to the oil and gas industry. Their wireline operation services measure formation properties in oil and gas wells through electrical lines of wire. The logs created by these measurements can be 2-3 gigabytes in size and need to be shared with global partners and customers. This motivated Pioneer in search of an enterprise file sharing solution to address these problems:

  • Log files too large to reliably send from well sites to staff and customers.
  • Inefficiency when sending files from remote locations with faulty connections.
  • IT department insufficient to host their own 24/7 file transfer solution.
  • Difficulty quickly retrieving data due to storage on discs and external drives and paper-based processes.

Pioneer Energy Services is using the Thru Platform to streamline the transfer and access of large files in its global wireline operations.

  • Access Anywhere, Anytime – To increase global file transfer speeds, Thru has data centers around the world where transferred files are mirrored to selected locations for low latency uploads and downloads. This is essential for Pioneer’s wireline operations to efficiently send large files globally.
  • Ease of Use – Pioneer enjoys Thru’s easy-to-use interface because of its simple yet powerful functionality. Out-of-the-box integration with applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Salesforce adds convenience and maintains known workflow. Users can send emails with a secure link that allows the recipient to download any size file.
  • Security – Complete tracking of every file in the system gives Pioneer a view of who has seen the data and when. Multiple certifications for data centers combined with extensive network and application security offer peace of mind. Thru is built from the ground up with security protection in mind and has never experienced a breach.
  • Administration – Consolidating files and folders into one portal is important for organizations that need secure, streamlined processes. Pioneer utilizes the robust Thru admin dashboard to simplify the management and auditing of multiple users, groups and files in the system.
