Governor William P. Clements

W.P. Clements is a distinguished offshore pioneer and statesman. As an engineer and entrepreneur he started Southeastern Drilling (SEDCO) in 1947 onshore, but quickly applied his vision and technology skills to take his company offshore, tackling the world's toughest roughest and deepest ocean environments. SEDCO grew from two rigs operating in 10 ft of water in 1954 to 50 rigs operating in 100 to 15,000 ft of water depth in 1985. Clements' vision became reality because he selected the right people and then gave them the responsibility and authority to accomplish his goals.

William P. Clements served as Governor of Texas. He has given a lifetime of service to the Boy Scouts of America, and the IADC.
