Still Oil

No matter what they say you have to see it first hand. Working out in the West Delta field the last couple of weeks I have had time to see the BP oilspill first hand. Although 5 months ago now there is still oil in the water. Now I support BP's efforts, but I know for a fact there is still oil on the surface of the water. I saw it just the other day, not just a small sheen, but not thousands of gallons either. But there is still oil in the water and the skimmers should be out still picking it up. Work wise for me though we are busy as hell. The government is scared and wants all the old wells that have been shut in for years plugged. And that equals work for myself and other P&A companies. Looking to get into the oilfield? It's still a good time.

Oil,Oil Everywhere

It has been a while since my last post and the oilfield in the Gulf of Mexico has drastically changed. Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 3 months then you know all about the Deepwater Horizon accident. I will not go into detail about it on here, but there is one fact you need to know. I realize this is a horrible accident but the gulf will recover. THERE ARE 643 quadrillion gallons of water in the gulf. So when people ask me if the gulf is jut a big bowl of oil I reply with" are you fucking kidding me?". Come on people. Yes there is oil in the gulf, but it will be ok.
