The company that supplies the Atlas fleet is slowly starting to phase out the NOV series 24 and 36 motors in favor of this tool.

Amazing how far mud motors have come in the past 6 years (my experience) -- everyone is moving away from buying someone else's tool and servicing to creating and designing their own

Any of y'all drillers or producers need pressure test equipment, let me know... we have all the parts, can design units, have standard test units (water, oil and nitrogen), and rental units... For permanent installations, we and design, build, install, and service them for you... Well as long as you don't need to go over 151,000 psi ...

Halliburton laying off another 650 folks

The place I work for had another round of layoffs last week with probably one more before the year is through

Couple of my buddies have been let go from their positions, engineering guys and motor techs

At work we are preparing for the worst and basing a 2020 budget off a 750 rig count... not an exciting time to be in the motor industry, especially in my role as a Sales Rep

We are still rolling pretty good. We have actually increased rig count lately and adding to our motor fleet now through Q1 next year. Our sales team has been hustling to make that happen while overall rigs are dropping

I sure hate hearing that. Hopefully the ones that can will find something in another industry. Looks like the good times may be over for a long time.

The late summer bump I experienced is over. Work drying up quick. I dont expect it to get any better any time soon.

Better prepare yourself if you work for a major service company. The never ending expectation of growth from shareholders is leading to knee jerk reactions. All the major service companies are bleeding to death, mainly due to top heavy employee structures. Expect to see layoffs from all of them in the next few months.

We're hanging in there with a small uptic in deep water exploration in the G.O.M. But it is very sluggish. Very few long term contracts being signed. And the the market is extremely competitive with some of the lowest day rates I have ever seen. I don't think we will ever see the boon days of 8 years ago.

We lost 45+ employees last week due to a voluntary layoff. Lots of folks opting to retire early or go somewhere else. All of them was given some type of package based on years of service. Third layoff this year and hopefully last one till it picks back up. I was talking to one of our salesman last week who had been in Oklahoma all week and he wasn`t very optimistic. He said maybe the 2nd quarter of 2020 but who really knows.

This is what I have been reading. Apparently the profits from investments have not panned out due to low prices and investors are pulling out.

We sold off the pipeline side of our business at just the right time, this annual slump is hitting pretty hard, with a political turmoil year ahead (elections) I haven't heard much optimism for much of a ramp up for next year.

Man, I wish some rigs would show up in the GoM too, but with $50 oil, it ain't likely to happen any time soon, especially deep water...

True. But the way its worded seems to indicate its more than the usual scrapping

HOUSTON (Bloomberg) - The downturn in shale drilling has been so steep and brisk that oilfield companies are taking the unprecedented step of scrapping entire fleets of fracing gear.

With almost half of U.S. frac firepower expected to be sitting idle within weeks, shale specialists including Patterson-UTI Energy Inc. and RPC Inc. are retiring truck-mounted pumping units and other equipment used to shatter oil-soaked shale rock. Whereas in previous market slumps, fracers parked unused equipment to await a revival in demand, this time its different: Gear is being stripped down for parts or sold for scrap.
