    Yeah everyone is hoping for oil in all their plays nowadays. Natural gas prices are going to stay low for a while....$2.40/MMCF this morning :(

    Most predictions are that natural gas won't be much above $3-4 for the next 4 years or so, when the new restrictions on coal plants kick in.

    Is there any Niobrara shale oil activity around you?

    Yeah I've been watching the gas prices. They just closed down the nitrogen part of are yard yesterday and closed another yard in KY and VA due too the low natural gas prices and that the company that they did all there work for pulled the plug on there whole operation in va & ky due to the gas prices being so low and not making enough profit. :(

    I worked off shores for a contractor. 24/7 on call. It SUCKED. But the pay was good and all the guys out there are pretty cool. Good food. But not knowing if you're leaving the next day or not sucked.

    I hate to say it, but williston nd is the booming place right now, I just couldn't deal with traveling back and forth with a fam at home anymore. Just make sure you go to work for someone that provides a place to live. Nabors and h&p arent the only ones up there, anyone under the sun with a drill rig is up there.

    I do wireline, specializing in pipe recovery.

    Yep, the Williston Basin (nd) and Permian Basin (west tx) are the big boom places now. Unemployment is about 2%.

    I went international on a rotation. It sucks being gone for 4 weeks but great when I get back for 4. The money is better as well.

    No. It's much less dramatic and no one cares what's happening on nearby rigs.
