About Us

Rob and Laurie Dobush have been involved in the drilling business since 1984, beginning in Manitoba, Canada.

We moved to the United States to participate in the advancement of a relatively new drilling technology called sonic drilling, which utilizes high frequency vibrations to install drill pipe in the ground.

In 1994, our family moved to the Richland area to support a government - funded research program utilizing sonic drilling. By 2002, we had established a small, woman-owned business. We purchased assets from several companies and built a business that used several different types of drilling methods to meet the specialized needs of our clients. Our business has grown into Blue Star Enterprises NorthWest, Inc. (BSE-NW) which now employs approximately 20 personnel and operates seven drill rigs and support equipment.

BSE-NW has highly skilled employees with over 25 years of drilling experience. We are accustomed to and knowledgeable about the unique soil and drilling conditions of the Columbia Basin.

The company has reached a comfortable size so that we can concentrate on continuing to do the best work possible while maintaining an atmosphere conducive to safety and quality. We strive to not only meet, but to exceed the expectations of our customers.

Besides running a business, the Dobush family interests can be seen around the shop. Rob and our son enjoy restoring classic cars, and our family enjoys driving the finished projects.

Our mission statement is simply "Quality over Quantity". We strive for quality results at a reasonable price while maintaining a safe and effective work environment for our customers, our employees, and the environment.
