My company, Petro Waste Environmental LP, is looking for immediate hires for 2 Scalehouse Operators, 2 Operators, and 2 Heavy Equipment Operators at our Orla Landfill in the Delaware. We have a man camp on site and currently run 7 on 7 off.

We will be hiring for all positions (probably 12-14 openings) for our Howard County Landfill near Stanton in about one month.

We also have an opening in Carrizo Springs for an SWD operator.

We are also looking for a Customer Service Rep for the Permian for an immediate hire.

Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

I work in OCTG casing and tubing market which has been crazy the past 3-4 months. Domestic Producers like TMK and USS have a huge demand currently but they can only produce so many tons per months. Price increases steadily each month, and low allocation amounts to distributors tells us that we are on the uptick for the foreseeable future. Once we get to the peak though it will crash again. I have seen 3 times now.
Imports were really tight as well but a large amount of vessels are docking in the Houston area bring the supply up as well. It is a rather predictable battle that cycles time and time again.

Glad this thread is still going. I know I was disliked by many in this thread years ago but water under bridge now. I see oil and energy on general climbing over the next few years which will be good news for all involved in those markets. I was correct when I said the oil market crashing wouldn't hurt the overall economy and I was correct. Let's hope I'm just a right on energy taking off soon.

The ROV Company I work for had over 375 offshore hands in Dec 2014 but down to about 150 now. Good men lost home and possessions through no fault of their own so you can take your gloating "I was right" BS and shove it.

Go back and read what I posted long ago. I always looked at it from an investment and economical side of things. I'm not rooting for oil to do good or bad unless I'm invested in it. I was just trying to explain to everyone long ago that the oil market does not affect the total eaconomy unless oil is high. Oil being low has no negative bearing on the market... only positive.

I just told people to keep investing in the market and don't think it's going to tank just because oil did.

I knew that was right and agreed.

The whole reason this thread was started was hoping guys would be better with their oil money. If they lost it all they weren't very good with it and it's nobody else's fault but their own

I was told the day I started in the oilfield that it doesn't last forever. It's a volatile business and you've got to be smart with your money. I saw a lot of people that weren't smart with their money and lost a lot when the down turn came around. I enjoyed it for several years, but I'll never go back. I prefer slow and steady over fast and furious and then the bottom dropping out.

Oilfield hands need to realize they're just construction workers. Everyone has always know construction workers go bouts of unemployment. The money they made that could of easily saved. You don't need a 70k dually diesel to drive to your rig site to sit or a 40k+ 5th wheel to live in.

I still work for them but my Gross Income for 2016 and probably 2017 is less than HALF of what I made in 2014.

Bphillips, I agree with your position on saving for a rainy day.

Not a chance

I guy I know in the field that has been laid off almost 3 years and been struggling just went back to work. He has been making money about a month now and offered me more than I have in it. Couldn't believe he wasn't worried about saving yet. I should sell to him just to buy back cheaper next time haha

I took a job with a set schedule and won't go back. Missed too much doing directional. Big pay cut but love being home

When people use generalizations it usually indicates their lack of knowledge on the subject. There's many oilfield hands out there that are responsible for getting tens of thousands of dollars worth of product out of the ground, into the initial processing system then on to a sales point with millions of dollars of equipment on a daily basis. Plus they have to do all this within a limited time frame, in a environmentally responsible manner, and while following a metric s#\++0n government regulations.

I remember and you were right for trying. It's just hard for people to see most of the time especially when they are standing inside. Reality is not always easy to realize.

The current O&G company I'm with right now hasn't been off schedule more than a couple days. No bobbles since March.

This new company I acquired has a dedicated Frac fleet, so I doubt they'll deviate also...

Water analysis throughout Frac to police the Frac/chemical company. We have found and saved O&G company tens of thousands of dollars were Frac/ Chem companies over pumping chemicals just to charge more.

Sometimes they under pump curtain chemicals, which can hurt FR and Gel tolerances.

After the Frac, we monitor drillout and formation fluids throughout each stage.

Every O&G company we're working for has loved our data. They can correlate our stage to stage data to the Frac companies data and see exactly how each chemical is working.

Really? How many guys do you know than can commission new gathering systems. From the wellhead to residue sales points. Trouble shoot processing plants and skids. FIX them. Trouble shoot electrical and instrumentation. Monitor and report title V requirements. AMS reporting. Go through build outs and redline P&IDs. Write up ops procedures and PSSRs. And keep a several hundred million dollar facility on its feet and profitable safely and reliably in any weather? Everyone is disposable to a point. Some of us bring a lot to certain tables and know a fair bit in many areas of our industry. I can do field AND plant operations. Start ups. Commissioning and everything in between. Not to dang many construction workers can do that. Takes a lot of sacrifices and being away from my wife a daughter. But my little girl gets to live a better life than I did and me and the wife get to enjoy ourselves. Please know what you're talking about before giving advice lol. Hammer down fellas!! Keep em turning to the right and I'll make it worth money in the middle.

Lots of contractors do what you just described. How do you think plants get built and commissioned/started up? Just because you may not have seen it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I'm not in ops(don't like night shift) but I've spent my entire career in plants both as a contractor and in-house, which is where I'm at now. We rely on contractors to do the jobs we don't want to do and when we need help in he plant. And just because you've spent a few years in a little plant out in west Texas doesn't mean you know it all. It's a big world out there.

I know that. I work with them. Lol. I'm not saying I'm the best. We always learn new stuff. My point was that lots of folks have sought after skill sets. And I didn't come from a little plant from the start....my current one started off little. Adding a 120mmcf/d train as we speak. Again, my point is that some folks aren't just slinging chain and iron. And it's best to be able to do a wide variety of work. I'm no better than anyone else. I'll dig a ditch if that's what needs to be done. From the little stuff to the big stuff. It all needs to be done. Who do you work for?

I will add that since you've been around operations before, you should know how hard GOOD operators who actually know what they are doing are to find lol. Not saying I'm good or know what I'm doing

I'm in the chemical side now. I work for the largest chemical company in the world, BASF in I.E. maintenance. Very stable. Good operators are worth their weight in gold. The ones we don't like are the ones that think they can fix everything. Lol. That's what we have maintenance for.

I started operations with DCP. Same as most companies in that operators don't fix stuff, call I&E, call a mechanic etc. That's fine and dandy but I am 2-3 hours from help most of the time where I am. So 1, I fix it or have someone help walk me through it on the phone and keep production loss to a minimum, or 2, sit on my rear like a lot of operators and wait for "help" and hope they have the right stuff to fix it or we will be waiting a lot longer. I have real good bosses who let us do what we feel safe with within reason and it works well. Me and 1 other experienced operator help keep the wheels on on each of our shifts until help arrives or we fix it. Its certainly unlike any plant I have operated before but for me, I like it much better. Learn a very large variety of things 99% of operators don't get to. Because as you said, most hire contractors to do a lot of it.
