  • Hi Brian, you touch on a few interesting topics here, and it takes an expert (not me) to really put values on different estimates of reserves. First though, here's a run through of the meaning of MMcfe and a few similar terms: * Mcfe Thousands …
  • Hi Liza, I have a bit of experience in internet marketing and am happy to help you out. I just searched the oilfield camo term, and I think that it's reasonably clear that there is a company with a registered trademark. Here's a press release excerp…
  • Hmm... I see that you've been a rookie more than once. Don't worry Bryce, we promise that you'll only get teased a little bit here. Firstly, let's undo a previous wind up. I suspect that if you worked in a manual job before, and tried to use other p…
  • The company said that it's preparing for "modest" job cuts in Houston and throughout the United States during this coming September. The reason given was to help keep costs down. Here's what a company spokesperson had to say: "Employees hav…
  • Hi Tony, as you rightly say, it's understandable why individuals choose to be consultants and it's not just about money. Whilst there's an element of risk in not securing continuous work, there is also the element of freedom when working for yoursel…
  • Hi Jeremy, yeah it's an interesting one. My take is that it's a bit of defiance mixed with humour. I've mostly been white collar, but I can imagine showing up to the bar covered in oil, grease, mud, sweat and the remains of lunch... Some in the b…

  • Hi Brian, I get notifications when someone posts a question, so I thought that I'd jump in right away. After a bit of research I think that I've found a possible answer. You're referring to buttweld pipe fittings, and I think that the wpb stands …
  • Hi Kev, I don't have any experience in working with nitrogen pumping units. Because this oil and gas forum is fairly new, I tend to go ahead and do a bit of research, then get the ball rolling with the first comment . I'll list out a few facts an…
  • I don't know much about Moroccan oil careers, or surfing, but as moderator I did a bit of quick research on your behalf. I found a couple of really nice images to whet your appetite: This is a photo of Taghazout Beach, which is the closest to…
  • Thats right Kev, an independent company is only involved in the exploration and extraction or hydrocarbons. It's true that they can be all sizes, from a small family business or proprietorship, to BHP Billiton, or even China National Offshore Oil Co…
  • Natural gas, when it comes out of the well is a mixture of different hydrocarbons in varying proportions, and also has water, carbon dioxide and other 'waste' materials. The average person might think of wet gas having water (H2O) in it, and they'd …
  • Hi Kev, You bring up quite a few good talking points here, even the basic question can be answered on different levels. The high school answer would be a lot different to one offered by a physics professor. I'll get the ball rolling with the s…
  • Broadly speaking, supermajor is the term used for the world largest publicly owned oil companies. When we see the word used, we immediately think of companies such as Shell, BP or ExxonMobil. Here are the names of the 6 companies widely accepted …
  • Hi Bryce and welcome to our community. You might already know a little about the job, once I tell you that floorhand is another name for a roughneck. Considering that your profile says that you live in Houston, this might be a familiar name. Floo…
