Then and Now - May 2011

May 1961 What would you say would be the toughest thing to steal in the oil patch? How about an oil well? A brazen gang of well-equipped thieves with time and technical know-how pulled it off in eastern Oklahoma. The thieves took 1,400 ft of 4 1/2” casing, 2” tubing, and 5/8” sucker rods, a pumping unit, two 100-bbl tanks, two separators, the engine powering the pump, a gas regulator, all the lines and connections to the tanks, the wellhead, along with some extra pipe and fittings. If you think you know how they managed to get away with this, raise your hand. If you guessed it was a repossession, you get to take the rest of the day off. $ This month is the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s monumental decision that Standard Oil is an illegal trust, …


Chairman's Corner May 2011

The month of May is a time of the year when the Gulf Coast section acknowledges and celebrates the contributions of many of our volunteers. A benefit of volunteerism within the SPE GCS is the opportunity to build and strengthen your reputation by increasing the level of respect from others. It’s been said that the key to a good reputation is character, and that a person’s character is like a fence, it cannot be strengthened with paint. Earning the respect of others is found through integrity, humility, dependability, priority living, generosity, and spirituality. Integrity is a cornerstone of the foundation of respect. Respectable people do not tell lies. In regards to humility, it’s been said to be humble or you’ll stumble and anyone who listens to correction is to be respected. Don’t brag; remember that it isn’t the whistle that …

Then and Now - April 2011

April 1981 It appears that Spain could become a gas exporter, as Eniepsa’s gas strike in the Pyrenees is now pegged at 3.5 trillion cubic feet of reserves. $ An ENI report calls for much of West European refining and petrochemical capacity to eventually move to Middle East exporters in exchange for long-term, guaranteed crude supplies, which could diminish considerably the American clout in world petroleum markets. $ The mood in Canada remains grim, as the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors reports that 114 drilling and 16 service rigs have left the country since Fall and more are expected to follow. $ An Exxon vice president declares that the majority of oil companies agree that half of the oil still to be found in the U.S. is on or offshore Alaska and that American dependence on foreign crude could …
