Doom & Gloom in the patch?

Updated: Sep 15, 2020

Oilfield Doom & Gloom... that's what we hear in the media and see in featured stories.


I'd like to invite you to a little experiment. The next "doom & gloom" story you see, investigate the author of the piece, you may be surprised at what you find.


I've been doing this for the past few months, and have found some authors with obvious agendas and no background in O&G, spewing a narrative that is simply not accurate.


Has our industry taken a hit? Yes! Many of our brothers and sisters in the business have been laid off and some companies have shuttered. So yes.... it's been hard, but lately, I've started to see a small shift. On LinkedIn, I'm seeing folks accepting new positions, and companies announcing things that indicate positive activity.


Like many things, our industry has been under attack on a national scale, but don't allow those national attacks to define our industry.


The real story is..... things are improving! Things are looking up! We're not there yet, but we're closer than we were last month, and getting closer!


The rebound is happening. It always does.


There's power in the patch!

I believe the media tries to tells us what they want people to think and believe and people fall for it hook, line and sinker. If people would realize how much they need our product and what would happen if they shut us down they would change their minds. The problem is once laws do get set in place to hurt our industry it so hard to get them undone. I love the Oil and Gas Industry and its family feel. I have been …
