From Cheers to Tears – How the smiles from the dropping oil prices will turn to panic.

I did a post on Facebook here the other day which got a lot of attention so I decided to would blog about it for the OR site. If your seeing and reading this, thanks for taking the time to allow my voice to be heard.   Anyway there was an image I saw on FB and shared it on the page of 4 people in a boat. The boat has a hole in one end of the boat and two of the people are bailing it out while the other two are on the other side. One comments to the other, “sure glad the hole isn’t on our end.”     When I...

North American Demand VS Production.. Why arn’t we using our own product first?

  Everywhere you look these days on the Internet or news, oil prices are falling. While the average every day person is rejoicing at falling gas prices cause they can save a few dollars a week in fuel, thousands of people are loosing their jobs in the oil industry. This is the price a person pays for being apart of the oilfield and the people are always expected to prepare for the next crash. Or at least that’s what we are used too, but does it have to be this way? People outside the industry don’t realize the effect the price of oil has on an economy and ultimately how it indirectly affects them....

Oilfield Messing With Natural Selection?

Over the years we’ve seen safety standards and rules increase at different rates throughout the oilfields of North America First off, I’m going to make it very clear that I’m not against safety rules.  We do need them and they should be followed. However, The ‘Safety Industry’ has ballooned to a ‘God Knows How Much Profit’ a year industry and is saturated with condescending dickheads and general hypocritical bullshit.   (btw –go ahead and try follow the money trail  pulled in by ‘non-profit’ organizations like Enform)… So, service companies and sub contractors are now required by many oil companies to have safety certifications beyond standard H2S and CPR First aid.  Some of these are useful...

Hey Oilfield Douche, Who are you to say…

  ‘Back in the Day’   I really have to restrain myself at times from punching guys square in the balls, when I hear them say this. Mainly because it’s said by some douche that is trying to look like an experienced old timer but ends up coming off like, well, a douche. The only guys, that should be allowed to say ‘Back in the day…’ are guys who rarely say it (because they don’t need to.)   So for all you douche’s out there who need a wake up call I’ve compiled a guideline that will help you know if you or someone you know in the oilfield has the right to say it…  ...

Top 7 Weird Fuckers in the Oilfield

  I thought I’d kick off my first post to Original Rigger with something all patch workers can relate to… ‘Weird Fuckers’ If you work long enough in the oilfield you end up meeting/running into/working with a lot of different guys and once and a while you run into some very weird fuckers.  At times this can scare the hell out of you and make you wonder if you’ll turn out that way if you stay in the oilfield long enough. Here’s my personal Top 7 favorites… 1.  Kicking off the list is a Wellsite Geologist.  This guy wore bright, yellow, dutch shoes everywhere he went and didn’t say a single word to anyone.  He also...

Fuckin Facebook!

Kinda sad that our first blog is a rant about Facebook… but here we go.   To date, we have been selling our products for almost a year. We started late August of 2013 and have exceeded every expectation by far. Because of Facebook’s ability to advertise we have relied solely on them, which has worked out well for us and for that we thank Facebook. Our focus has been to bring attention to our Facebook page by increasing our likes and in turn expand out market base while bringing attention to our products. A very simplified way of describing what we paid for is when a person is browsing their “News Feed” or...
