Rig Tour

I went on a tour of this drilling rig the other day. It’s in our neighborhood, at least temporarily, and the company is trying like crazy to be good neighbors. So, a tour.

I learned a little, mostly that modern oil and gas exploration is subcontracting. Nobody actually own anything, it’s all subcontracted. Not that that’s a bad thing, but it’s an interesting look into our modern oil business.

We went on a tour of the rig, and the three nearest the speaker probably got a nice talk, but the rest of us heard two big Cat diesels running at full-song making electricity for the drilling operation. Not a big deal, and it was interesting.

And, no, I’m not getting a cent from this, nor are any of me neighbors (except the one who owns the land the rig is on, and they didn’t come).
