Any Oilfeild positions?

I've been working in the supply side of the oilfield industry for the last three years and plan on moving up to the Fort Worth area with in the next month or two. Anyone know of any shop hand positions or sales positions open? Thanks.

Yeah i heard that about Chesapeak but not Halliburton. Apparently Chesapeak bought to many leases and there is no gas.

thats why you work for one of the contractors and not the oil company/wildcatter itself. that way you know theres not too many irons in the fire. but seriously, you have a good chance of being laid off in just about any good paying industry right now.

Yeah the oil boom is over, and it's going to level out in the next few months. As long as it stays above $30 a barrel you won't see a massive lay off. Layoff's though are already happening at some companys. Except after the first of the year to see more.

The boom is not over. The price of oil does directly affect natural gas, therefore drilling has slowed for now. However we all know it's not staying this low for long. Then the only stuble for drilling is the snobby city sanctions that are keeping some of the cities from getting their gas. That's just a couple smaller towns right now.

I work fo Halliburton and we(Frac) have not slowed down yet. They are cutting back, just in case something happens. Our biggest customer is Devon and they are saying they are going to drill just as much in '09 as they did in '08. Chesepeake is slowing down because they paid too much for thier leases and cant make as much money with the low oil prices.
As far as the service companies go, I think they will be ok. Even if the drilling slowed way down we still have quite a few re-fracs to do to keep us busy.

I think we are ging to start hiring again after thr 1st of the year. Right now they are just filling the spots that are opened from quitters.

I worked as a landman for Red Sky Land which is a leasing company for Cheasapeake and Red Sky did a 50% reduction in work force today. There is plenty of gas in the Barnett Shale, but as was stated above Cheasapeake over paid and now they are cutting down on production to make some money back. They are going from 160 +/- rigs to just about 100 +/- rigs by March of '09. Halliburton, XTO, EOG, Schlumberger are all good companies that are still making money and hiring. Change isn't always a bad thing just scary sometimes. To the OP, I would stay in the same field that you are in if you can. If not then I would make sure that you have a position lined up before making the move up towards Ft. Worth. Job hunting and xmas time are not very good things together unless you are looking for seasonal only work.

Well here in the Houston area it sure is slowing down...

I know our company lost 6 mutli billion dollar projects, nearly half of Paragon is on overhead sitting surfing the net, flour and KGR apparently isn't in any better shape...

The boom of $140 a barrel is over. It will hopefully go back up to 70-80 range and everything will steady out. There for a while the money getting thrown around here was refuckingdiclous.

I work for Superior Well Services and we just bought Diamondback and are still hiring and are not slowing down a bit. We have many positions available in cement and frac. We get as many hours as we want. I live in Ft. Worth myself and it is not a bad drive since it's nothing but highway. Takes me about 20-25 minutes to get to work and I drive slow...

The lower those gas prices go, the less hiring and more firing they do in the oilfield industry.

My friend just started at frac cpl months ago, ive thought about applying there for one of there CDL positions. Just Alvarado is a drive for me everyday "Haltom City" but if the $$ is right i might do it.

And the fact that iv'e been at Frito lay for a while and there a great company to work for, hard to want to leave when they take very good care of there employees.

Haltom City is close compared to what some of these guys drive.
Saginaw, Whitney, Haslet, we even have a guy that drves from Frisco every day. I have been with the company for 2 years, This was my first year in the field and I almost hit 80k. Id say the money is right

Superior just laid off bout 29 people at our yard on Wednesday, both frac and cement. Diamondback did the same thing Thursday laying off 39 people. Luckily I was one of the lucky ones that stayed but I still get shit load of hours. Diamondback started bring all there water transfer equipment over to our yard yesterday along with the tankers. Now our yard is gonna all cement and water transfer...
