Was a drilling & completions field coordinator in TX for BHP before they sold out their shale properties to BP. Schneider got themselves put in the corner more than enough times to the point where they were not allowed on the callout lists even if other outfits couldn't be dispatched. Some company men found themselves in deep doo doo if they tried because Houston operations had directed finance to not issue PO's for any work until safety signed off on all audits to get them back in rotation. Exact same thing happened with Stevens. And this wasn't just BHP. Pioneer and a few other operators extinguished enough of their work to squash any plans they had made to move out west when the Permian boom started.
