Very true. I went through it when Scumberger bought the company I worked for Camco for our safety valves. Nothing much at the beginning, then they shut every slickline shop we had down and moved it to Houma. I had bailed by then, but they told all the hands they could live in Houston, but would have to drive to Houma to load up for jobs. Then after awhile of that they told hands to either move to Houma or find new jobs.

We are still hanging on. We are cutting our workers but not laying off. As people quit they are not replacing them and are transferring people around. They cut our full time pickups but we now have pool trucks. I drive my truck the first day of shift and drive a pool truck after.
There are a few rigs running. Enervest, lenorman, and unit are still drilling. Chesapeake, apache, eog, and Samson are doing nothing. I don't think they are even fixing stuff as it breaks. They just shut the well in.
There are 9 Samson wells on the place I live and i think all 9 are shut in.

It's getting rough. Hoping it turns around some in the next month or two. It has me stressed out paying for this hunt I'm about to go on. Guess if it slows down much more we will start building other stuff.

Looks like I dodged a bullet for the time being. Decided I was gonna take a big gamble and jump ship to a new company and a month into my new venture the rig I left was stacked. Many of my former coworkers are now looking for work because the company I left I guess has lost so many rigs.

Oh and no overtime. Absolutely none. It'll be interesting to see how that no overtime deal works out this winter when we are typically out in the field after ours dealing with freeze ups and such.

Not sure where you are that Apache and EOG are doing nothing, but apache is still keeping us busy as heck in College Station and same with EOG in south TX. Obviously not like it used to be, but we're still doing fine on the artificial lift side of things. I've noticed it the most with the smaller operators who are just about shutting their doors. The next few months may get dicey, but tough times don't last, only tough people do. Prove yourselves to your company So you're the last resort when it comes to lay offs. I drove 2017 miles in the last 5 days, and worked 73.5 hours. I won't be out worked no matter what.

They've both slowed down drilling a whole lot. Even the W Tx stuff that was gonna keep going Apache is dropping to 2 possibly even 1 rig by end of the year.

Your end will just see it later than us

We have picked up a couple rigs in the last month. A lot of penny pinching and a lot of office folk losing their jobs, but we are steady drilling. Supposed to pick up another before the new year. I'm using three different directional vendors now and I'm trying to keep my core group together. I've had to get a couple guys to switch companies to keep them busy. I had one of my guys decide he was going to push back about every decision on the well we are finishing up. His performance has always been par at best, but he's an experienced guy who I've thought had plenty potential. Well after this well he will no longer be on my rig. He will have to hope his company can find him another operator to work for. I have too many solid DD's eager to work.

After being laid off in March I went to work driving a truck hauling milk.
One day out the blue I get a text from a friend offering me a dispatch position for better money. I took it and have t looked back. We stay busy enough to keep 50+ frac sand trucks busy. When most of the guys are out of town, I get to haul local loads and make extra money. It's a win win for me.

I'm in the eastern panhandle. I hear apache is still drilling north of amarillo but they are not doing much on the east side.
You are right about making yourself valuable. My dad is a consultant and started feeling the heat when the company he works for let go of all other consultants except for him. He studied up on the quad z stuff and is taking care of all the flares in his area. The company he consults for got hit hard by the epa for not running flares so he keeps up with flare reports and fixes flares when they are down. He only works 3 days a week now but it's better than nothing.

Same here. A few of my accounts are staying busy while others aren't doing much. It's been hard to develop new accounts in this economy, but a few new ones have picked up bits recently.

Big thanks to Jsapp for helping me get an audience with his DEs! We've been gaining some momentum with that group!

After being laid off in February from GoFrac (who shut their doors for good), I haven't been able to find a field engineering job or anything geology related. I finally had to switch industries all together. I just started as a Realtor here in Fort Worth, but I'm hoping to make it back when prices come up. Good luck, I hope everyone can stay busy!

LOL! I quit listening to the chatter and just focus on what I can control or I'd go mad worrying about it. Too many unknown variables to make any predictions.

I'm out around Mentone today. I can see 11 rigs from the higher elevation of the area. I heard a little news brief on the Midland radio saying that sales tax was down a half million for the month compared to the same timeframe last year.

I would be suprised if it was back to $70 by December. I still think it will be at $70 next year between April and June. That has been my best uneducated guess since early this year.

Yea there is still a lot of traffic just not near as much "rig traffic" or overall compared to what it was. Apache just laid out Nabors 896 up there and at least 1 and maybe two more will go down by end of year. I followed 896 for awhile and luckily left or I would be sitting home now.

We are holding on fairly well here. They did let one service hand go last week. I am a little surprised we are holding on so well here. ( Oil Tool Sales and rental-Liner Hanger, Diverters etc ) As far as machine shops go in this area, they seem to be dropping like flies.

We are keeping our heads just above water as well. We are on the rental side too and just merged Patterson Rental Tools with Bronco Oilfield Services. We are still two entities, but our financials and locations are all merging. Luckily, our last layoff was a little over 2 months ago so it seems we may be stable for a little while. I haven't seen any of our machine ships drop out yet.
