I’ve spent most of my life working in the industry. It is a fascinating world out there.
Have the rates of success put us all out of business? The price of oil is so low right now, hundreds of rigs have been shut down and hundreds of thousands of us have been laid off with nowhere to go.
I’m all for alternative energy sources, but they’re not enough yet, nor are they capable of putting us back to work any time soon.
Extracting natural resources is a process full of incredible science, cutting edge technology and heavy manpower. We are now more successful than ever at delivering the vital energy that powers our economy, safeguarding our precious deep sea environment and ensuring that we fully benefit from our reservoirs of oil and gas.
