Initial Oil and Gas Price Projections for 2020

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) revised its forecasts for the last quarter of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. Despite oil and gas production increases, the Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) expects prices to trend down over the next few months. This is largely due to some recent production halts, trade war issues, and the

Best Practices for Utilizing Tubular Handling Systems

Every well’s production quantity and total yield relies on the infrastructure used in the downhole. If any section fails due to stress, fatigue, or undiscovered damage, you’ll need to shut down the well. The pump them will then have to conduct repairs. Consequently, this can lead to both expensive rework and a loss in revenue.
