It Has Been Real.....

Real Profitable…..

 

I have mentioned before that our oil field gate guard position is atypical.  99% of other positions will never see anything that comes close to this amount of traffic.  The positive aspect is we get paid very well for the effort.

Yesterday, we  saw over 1000 vehicles pass in front of the Old Girl.  Oil field gate guards can identify with these numbers.  We have on site:

3 drilling rigs

3 frac crews

2 work over or pony rigs

2 completion crews working to bring 2 pads online

All the activity means Miss K and I are whipped at the end of a 12 hour shift.  Not much time for anything but a shower and a meal and the bed.  This post has taken well over 2 hours to put together with all the interruptions.  With all that said, frac jobs do not last forever and all 3 drilling rigs are rigging down and will be gone by the first of the week.

 
Here is a youtube of Miss K doing what she does, shot from the window of the Old Girl, the chiming is the driveway alarm.

  • Oh my gosh, guys! That’s insane! They’re building a pad about 30 yards in front of the RV for the next site. For over a week, we’ve had all the Select trucks and gravel trucks etc… which we don’t get paid for because they don’t pay until there’s permanent personal on site. We’d filled 10 sheets when Teresa called and said to quite, no $. It’s been a non-stop traffic stop. We TD’d a couple of days ago and move Monday. I’ll be glad to be back to the regular world of a simple the one gate gate-guard job! Pretty sure we couldn’t do what you 2 do! I’ll just stay peacefully poor.
