    30% sounds good, but the rates have a lot more to do with it. 30% of $600 is less than 25% of $800.

    Nah, getting robbed or killed by some scumbag with a gun or knife isn't for me.

    I appreciate the lead and info on Haliburton, none the less.

    I mentioned the President because of his talk on energy independence and figured a boom would be sure to follow. That's the only reason I mentioned it.

    Wise words to live by, though. Thanks.

    Up in ND Halliburton only pays 16 an hour and Texas is only 13 or 14 to start. Calfrac and Baker Hughes start out higher especially if you have a cdl.
     
    PhoenixOneNine Thanks this.

    Try frac fueling when it picks up. Pretty much unlimited overtime. Paid shift change commute. Company housing and/or hotel. I did it in North Dakota and Pennsylvania 3000 to 4000 a week when it was cranking.
     
    PhoenixOneNine Thanks this.

    Nothing wrong with Midkand/Odessa was there 3 years. Pioneer is a debt free company, any old local oilfield home grown man will tell you that job is top of the job food chain
