Steve Kravits
President

E-mail:  stevekravits@targetdrilling.com

After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 1980 with a BS in Mining Engineering and a BA in Physics and Math, Steve began a career in the coal, gas and oil energy sectors. During his 33 plus years’ experience, he earned worldwide recognition for developing horizontal directional drilling techniques and for innovative applications for the coal mining industry. In 1995 Steve established Target Drilling Inc. to serve the domestic coal industry’s directional drilling needs. In 2000 he expanded the business from horizontal drilling in underground coal mines to directionally drilling surface horizontal wells targeting coal, oil and gas formations. Steve recently segregated the company into several companies, namely, Target Drilling, Inc. (underground and surface coal drilling); Target Drilling, LLC (oil and gas contract drilling and development); and Target Technologies, LLC (rig and navigation equipment design and commercial development to satisfy the coal, oil and gas drilling domestic and international markets) to more effectively pursue their distinctly different and specific markets.
