Hey Mark, on the last podcast you were talking about Treasury Shares for XOM and that they bought them in the Treasury markets. Treasury shares on XOM balance sheet means stock that hasn’t been issued or purchased on a buy back. Unless I heard wrong. Great show as always!
Regardless of the market conditions in O&G, what will companies always continue to be busy with. For example is it pipeline maintenance, updating permits, decommissioning old assets etc? In essence I’m wondering during this downturn what are companies (upstream, midstream and downstream) doing to stay busy.
I would like to hear more about what will happen after the Crude Oil export ban is lifted. Who will benefit the most? What sorts of benefits will we see? How can we prepare for these changes and be ready to benefit from them both personally and professionally when these benefits do come?
Question 1: What impact a prolonged (I mean multi-year) low price environment will have on the industry in the US and globally? Like you I tend to thing that 2016 will be a rebound year for oil and more so for natgas – but what happens if the unlikely happens and they stay low? what the opportunities in this scenario?
Question 2: How do you deal with a big multinational company? I remember Mark mentioning that you have to build a rapport with the individual manager but how do you even get to that stage?
Keep up the great work guys! Really appreciate it.
How much production is lost when operators stop using mudlogging and geosteering services during horizontal operations? Rephrased: Does the “Point and Shoot” method of horizontal drilling save enough money to compensate for lost production of a poorly placed well bore?
I’ve been looking for some data on this, but haven’t found any broad consensus.
I’m a sales person for a service company, and we have had 2 rounds of layoffs already. I have only been here a year and I’m scared that I am going to lose my job. Should I just go get another job outside of oil & gas now? Please help!
