Default Oilfield recession got my job

Well, it was a little later than most but I was cut loose yesterday after 11 years with the company. Business is business and the dollar is king. I'm looking for something anywhere between BCS/Huntsville and Houston. If you know of any leads, please let me know.

I'm a go getter. Have experience with NDT and QC/equipment repair. Spent 4 years as Purchasing Manager here in the Woodlands before the crash. Got bumped to finance (because of the crash) and spent almost 3 more years cleaning up PO's, paying invoices for 7 locations across the country, and started helping with purchasing capital expenditures for the sister company (Bronco Oilfield Services).


I would appreciate any leads you may have to jump back in the saddle.

Thanks,

On this thread, the second post an individual talks about a website where he used to work that may have leads for a job. He gives very good details it appears on how to look around the website.

Ouch man. And oil is creeping back up over $60. Please Lord let it continue to go up so we all can make a living in the patch again. I miss it like crazy. I'm ready to drill some wells.

Yes, this is something that would be worth the effort. Already sent my resume to him yesterday.

I'm not much help but I do know of a couple of companies that could use a consultant to get their ticket processing more efficient, these 90 to 120 day processing plus another 30 to 60 to pay really sucks.

You say you have NDT experience, I live in Magnolia and could possibly help you get a job in inspection. Give me a call, 713-478-9318, Andy.

Busy as ever if you’re willing to follow it. One thing about the work out here is it doesn’t stay in one place

Surprised to hear this too...Gas still needs a pick me up, but everything I'm hearing very recently is finally starting to have a positive ring to it for a change.

I have zero quarrels with traveling for work and neither does my wife for cutting me loose.

I do not have field experience, but I'm young and willing to learn. All my experience is on rental,repair, and manufacturing side.

However I do have a physical drawback where i cant lift much weight due to back issues and inevitable surgery. But this industry is all i know. Is there something that companies are willing to train such as drivers or equipment operators and the like?

Consulting is good if you have made a name for yourself in the oil field. $1500 a Day plus perks without a college degree but those guys have 30 years experience in oil and gas.
