  • 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?

  • 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.
