Honnor Drilling Ltd

Over 50 years of drilling experience

Honnor Drilling Ltd is a Hawkes Bay based company with over 50 years of drilling experience.

The company was founded on drilling water wells and providing associated well services throughout the greater Hawkes Bay area.

Evolution, technical development, and specialised new equipment has diversified the capabilities and range of drilling services of the company fulfilling industry demands.

The necessity to drill deeper high-volume wells required specialist Drill Rigs and custom-made equipment providing clients, governing bodies and consulting engineers with the services and confidence that they required.

Expansion of Geothermal, Oil and Gas fields required further development specific to the energy industry, leading Honnor Drilling to be recognised as technically astute drilling engineers completing numerous bores throughout the energy sector.

Our operational area has expanded from Hawkes Bay to the Wairarapa, Central North Island (Taupo, Ruapehu, Mokai), East Cape (Gisborne, Wairoa), Bay of Plenty (Rotorua, Whakatane, Kawerau) and Taranaki.


Honnor Drilling has developed its business to provide first class drilling engineering solutions for anyone who requires a bore or well.

Honnor Drilling strive for excellence in delivery to all clients.

The demand for specialist well maintenance and compliance services has led to the formation of a dedicated subsidiary

Water Well Services will be happy to provide a solution to your well/bore issue.
