Time to Get Real

Letter from the Publisher For the better part of 18 months our industry has been reeling from the complete tank (no pun intended) in the price of oil. All you could hear at the beginning were confident quotes like “Just wait it’ll be back to 100 soon.” “Back to 70 by the end of the year.” and “50 was the… Read More

Hurry up n’ wait

Letter from the Publisher The price of oil has been like a bad business partner who’s been on vacation all year. At 10 year lows a lot of people are worried and hopeful we’ve seen the bottom. I’ve literally listened to 100 financial experts explain where the price is going and when. Regardless of which opinion you listen to there’s… Read More

All Hail King Data

Letter from the Publisher Our industry continues to invest in the future despite the price of WTI and Brent Crude hovering around $45 per barrel for what has seemed like an eternity.

Ace in the Hole

Letter from the Publisher We saw several important and positive headlines since our last issue.  WTI Crude has settled in the mid 50s – after dipping to a 52 week low of 44 and change. Crude supply numbers in Cushing calmed speculation in the oil market with a draw of more than 900,000 barrels triggering more $70/barrel year end calls… Read More

Letter from the Publisher

Position. Position. Position.  Each month I speak with several hundred companies as part of our ad sales efforts here at OILMAN, from large E&P companies to independent service companies. As you can imagine, over the last two months there’s been a consistent theme across the board – uncertainty and fear. Both of which are understandable with the sharp decline in… Read More

Letter from the Publisher

Last week while visiting with my family I had a conversation with my grandpa Charlie about many things.  Inevitably, the oil industry came up as the topic of conversation.  We talked about everything from drilling technologies like hydraulic fracturing to the future outlook of the oil and gas industry. That’s when he buttoned up our conversation in the most perfect… Read More
