  • Discussions here relate to the evolution of the energy industry and what the future holds. Human history has shown gradual changes in heating fuel choices. Now, with technology marching forward faster than ever, there are likely to be a few surprises on the horizon. Cold fusion? Completely clean burning coal? Abundant solar? Something else?

  • This category has discussions relating to midstream activities in the oil and gas industry. As we know, most of the world production areas aren't in the same areas as the people who benefit from the extraction. The midstream sector is involved in shipping, pipelines, trucking and other types of transportation.

  • Solar Power
    Solar power is probably the biggest alternative source of energy and the main competitor to coal and gas. It has its limitations and technical challenges, but we've seen amazing progress just in the last five years. Rapid decreases in panel prices and advances in battery storage are among the standout factors that make solar power more viable all the time. We'd love to hear your thoughts on solar energy, and perhaps you can share new and exciting information in this category of the forum.

  • Wind Power
    The use of wind power continues to increase year on year around the world. The benefits are clear, and wind energy has many advantages over fossil fuels. For example, wind turbines are emission-free and can be installed in remote areas that not connected to the main power grid. An advantage over solar is that no rare earth materials are used, the mining of which causes pollution. What do you think?

  • Biomass Energy
    Biomass is one of the oldest sources of energy. We burned wood for cooking and heating long before hydrocarbons were discovered. Biomass is renewable but has downsides as an energy source. Let's discuss the latest in biomass technology and see how it fits into the energy mix.

  • Mining
    This category is for conventional mining for raw materials such as metal ore, coal or stone. It's NOT for oil and gas drilling, or crypto mining. Traditional mining has been the backbone of all industry for hundreds, even thousands of years. It still is! Mining creates the raw materials for both the fossil fuel and renewable industries.

  • Layoffs
    Layoffs in the oil and gas industry are a regular topic. The industry is so cyclical, anyone who has been around for a while will remember the last round of job cuts. Experienced workers will remember many industry downturns. This category discusses the latest layoffs. Our moderators will try to post new reports of job losses. If you know of a new report, then please add details. There's a separate thread for each company, with details of each new job cut news from the oil companies.

  • This category has posts related to manpower services and recruitment. We encourage those on the business/employer/headhunter/executive search side of the employment equation to share their thoughts and views. This will stimulate discussion from 'workers' but any topic overtly related to job searching will be moved to that category by admin.
