One Crew Moves Out….And Another Moves In

Saturday 2/25 The rig move continued but was very manageable.  A lot of trucks in and out but it’s the same trucks so once you get all of their information the first time you can use that information each time they return and not really have to stop them…just have them slow down so that … Continue reading »

I Am Woman….Here Me Roar!

We’ve had a few things come up recently that needed some maintenance.  The first on that list was the handle on the screen door.  It cracked after repeated use and was in danger of just breaking right off…especially if we had to fight any sort of wind when trying to open the door.

Back Underway

Saturday was a very quiet day…just 22 vehicles going in and out of the gate.  Reason being is that the coiled tubing operation was still shut down.  The night company man told me that normally when coiled tubing goes down there is normally 1 full day in between to partial days that they are shut … Continue reading »
