The Crude Life host Jason Spiess joins Genneca for a weekly energy report on The Country Twins morning show. This week Spiess recaps a week of interviews and discussions with staff from US Senators, Federal Reserve, small businesses and banks.
One theme from the PPP and EIDL loans known as the CARES Act, is that local bankers worked the weekend calling small business owners and alerting them of free money. Early reports indicate that 80% of the money from the CARES Act went to 43,000 people who make over $1M a year.
The EIDL purpose is to meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met had the disaster not occurred (amount of any EIDL advance is forgiven).
Up to $2 million
3.75% for businesses
2.75% for non-profits
The Loan is NOT Forgivable, except for $1000 per employee, up to 10 employees, up to $10K. Maturity is over 30 years and is deferred for one year.
For example, if a small business has 10 employees they are eligible for up to $2M, which $10K is forgivable. The small business would still be responsible to pay back $1,990,000 over 30 years.
P.P.P or Paycheck Protection program was an aid along with numerous other loans to stimulate the economy. $349 Billion was allotted for small business, and given the criteria followed, the loan would be completely forgiven.

Oil and gas operations are commonly found in remote locations far from company headquarters. Now, it's possible to monitor pump operations, collate and analyze seismic data, and track employees around the world from almost anywhere. Whether employees are in the office or in the field, the internet and related applications enable a greater multidirectional flow of information – and control – than ever before.
