Oil Field Workers

Oil field workers come from all walks of life. Some have an education and some don’t. I’ve known men that couldn’t turn a calculator on that could drill a 24,000 ft. well just by smelling of it. These guys are not a rare breed. They learn to do it by the seat of the pants and their balls. Oil field workers have to learn because they have families that depend on them to take care of them and a real man does just that. It takes all kinds of people to make up the oil field. You have to have people that are satisfied to do one thing their entire life and are comfortable doing just that. Others want to learn and grow. With no formal education, it is hard for these guys to move up unless someone gives them a hand in learning what is important to know.

My Daddy used to have a man stay with us when we lived in Hobbs, New Mexico named Bob Johnson. My Daddy and Bob started out the same, as truck drivers for The Western Company in Odessa, Texas. Bob was a good worker and a very likable fellow and my Daddy respected him for his work ethics. Daddy and Bob would sit at the dinner table after supper and draw pictures and do calculations using a slide rule. My Daddy went to Texas A&M but quit to go to the war. He was a bomber pilot in World War Two. His education even though not complete gave him a leg up on most other people because he could do the math required. He told me to be the first one to work and the last to leave. He also told me to ask a lot of questions when you got around someone that could possibly really know the answers. He said that the most important part of the oil field is to understand it in your mind and that most people needed a picture to be able to understand it properly. He said to always have the engineer draw me a picture. I have drawn many pictures on the hoods of a thousand Ford pickups all over the world. I explain now the same way as I was told to learn. Draw the new guy a picture. The oil field workers understand it better if he can see what you are talking about. You can also see that dumb ass look on their faces if you didn’t get it across the first time.

Oil field workers are not just the drilling hands. They are the truck drivers, refinery people, fishing tool operators, even the bean counters and engineers. They all take credit for being oil field trash. Some of these people stay close to home and other have the Wonder Lust. The oil fields of the world beckoned to the some of the finest people ever put on God’s green earth. Many different disciplines are required to make an operation run smooth. Sometimes you run across a man that has a smattering of idiocy in many aspects of the industry. I personally have been blessed with this due to having to make a living in the hard times when you can’t do just exactly what you are comfortable with. There is always something that you can learn, no matter how smart you think you are. No one has all of the answers. Most, you’ll find don’t even know what the question was.
