    8 x 5 = 40. Leaves 30 hours available for fuel, pti, driving.

    Per day, if you work 8 hours, you'll have 6 left to drive. So if you work 8 hours Friday, you're not going to get off a ten hour trip unless you run 5, take ten off there, and 5 back on Saturday.

    So if I worked 70 hours in 8 days and still wish to continue to work on the weekend or the next day. How would that work? Can I legally work on the 9th day or I need the 34 hour reset in order to continue? And also is their a roll over hours rule?

    It's a rolling recap. You can work as many hours as you did on day 1 because it drops off on day 9. Then day 2 becomes day 1 and Sunday you can work that many hours. You should be able to bracket any 8 days and they can't go over 70 hours.

    If you work Saturday only you should still be able to get a 34 restart in. Remember it must include 2 periods in between 1 am and 5 am.

    Also, You can not have more then one restart a week. Whether you use the 34hr or 24hr oilfield restart. I was unaware of it til recently. Stupid regulations :biggrin_25523:

    Lets say you did a restart over the weekend and sat on the well Tues and Weds. You have to calculate it as part of the week, not another restart. Regulations state, from your last restart, 168hrs must pass before another restart can be taken.

    The 168 hours is from the START of the last restart.

    I know.

    I was putting emphasis on the START.

    So, many people think it is the end of the last restart.

    Yeah, on day 9 you get the hours you worked on day one back. That's the easy way to figure it. At 8 hours per day, you'll never run over hours because you'll always have the hours back from that first day and won't even need to worry about the 34 hour restart. 8 hours x 8 days = 64 hours. So you'll actually have a few extra hours to work with.

    Add up the hours you've worked in the 7 days prior to today. Subtract that total from 70. That's how many hours you have available today..... forever and ever, amen.

    It's really that simple.
