    I have noticed a decline in activity over the past three weeks or so. I have read lots of articles advising that the conventional drilling and servicing will be slowing down for the remainder of 2012.
    Just wondering what you all are hearing and seeing out there.

    We have just had a couple of big fracs the last few weeks but I do hear other drivers talking about how they expect it to slow down soon. All the waste stations are full locally because of so much frac activity so it doesn't feel like it has slowed down quite yet.
     
    Oil Patch Trucker Thanks this.

    Squeeze time.....

    This will bump things for a bit, let the first and second quarter earnings make up for annual losses from last year.

    You guys will be at full tilt once that bump covers the needed ground.

    been on days off for the last week, but before that it's not balls to the wall, but nice and steady. i hear that red earth creek might be shutting down soon for us and we might be getting our trucks back which will make it seem slower. hearing there won't be much of a breakup this year around lloyd.

    Red earth creek sucks... I hated going to that place. Ive heard my old employer has already started handing out lay off notices about a month and half early this year.

    Been noticing alot of secondary highways already down to 75%.

    I don't think there is going to be a very long breakup unless it gets cold and we get a poop load of snow.
