    Clean as a whistle, and nah, I don't remind remote locations as long as the pay is worth while. And by tour the yard, you're referring to Pioneer?

    I'm not trying to come off as helpless, but I'm pretty clueless. Lol. I'm just looking for a lead that says "This one is the best idea. Go here." And I'll figure it out from there.

    Theyll train you to operate the pto and pumps and hook up hoses and open valves. Its not a big deal. Check out Nuverra in Texas and if you feel you must go freeze yo butt off in ND check out Mongoose. Lots has changed im sure but theres going to be work to be done.
     
    PhoenixOneNine Thanks this.

    Dont know much about Pioneer. I just meant to see the equiptment and get a sense if they got there stuff together. Things break on lease roads so it helps if they are going to fix stuff as it comes up. OTR is fine.
     
    PhoenixOneNine Thanks this.

    I just looked Nuverra up and the reviews are pretty terrible in all job titles. That's a little concerning.

    lol the drivers in Cotulla drivers seemed happy. Good equipment housing and benefits and pay. I left Texas when my hours dropped below OT hours but you could make a living driving 40 hrs. Things have certainly changed so you should definitely get advise from people who are currently there.
     
    PhoenixOneNine Thanks this.

    Pioneer (hereafter referred to as PNR) is big. They are also self-contained. They have their own drilling rigs, frac crews, workover crews, water trucks, etc. Not to mention, some of the bigger leases in the permian basin. You can get hired on over there basically doing what you want.

    They about to complete a pipeline ( if not already done ) to bring purchased water down to BL from the North. They did just complete their sand silos at the rail head......they are indeed self contained.....

    This pipeline is for fresh water? Im sure lots of pipelines have been built all over Texas since the slowdown. Also from what Im reading a lot of the energy independence push is going to be off shore.
