Oilfield Joke: Life as a Safety Engineer...

A Seventy-two-year-old Safety Engineer recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the doctor said he was doing "fairly well" for his age.

A little concerned about that comment, the Safety Engineer couldn't resist asking the doctor, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"

The doctor asked, "Well, do you smoke or drink beer?"

"Oh no," He replied, "I've never done either."

Then the doctor asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and bar-b-qued ribs?"

The HSE man said, "No, I've heard that all red meat is very unhealthful!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf?" the doctor asked.

"No, I don't," he replied.

Then the doctor asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or run around with women?"

"No," he said, "I don't do any of those things."

The good doctor looked at the Engineer and said, "Then why the heck do you want to live to be 80?"

Oilfield Joke: Need to hire a Drilling Engineer......

A big oilfield company was needing to hire a Drilling Engineer but had a problem as they had way too many candidates for the one position that was available. 

So to narrow down the group, the human resource director with a PHd in Philosophy gave a one question application after interviewing each of them on a broad array of topics.

The prospective Drilling Engineers were all gathered into a meeting room when the HR Director picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: “Using everything we have learned from your interviews, give me your best argument to prove that this chair does not exist.”

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion.

Some applicants wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. 

However,one member of the class, a former roughneck, was up and finished in less than a minute.

Weeks later when the position was filled by the former roughneck, the rest of the applicants wondered how he could have gotten the job when he had barely written anything at all.

His answer consisted of two words:


“What chair?”

Oilfield Joke: He Made Tool pusher....

This old boy from South Louisiana was working the derrick in down in Brazil.

Every day on his tower he would see this monkey watching him from a tree, so he started bringing up bananas and feeding the monkey.

It didn't take long and that monkey was in the derrick with him and he taught the monkey how to rack pipe.

After a few days the derrick hand didn't have to do anything. The monkey was doing it all.

Well the rig hand got laid off. He went home to South Louisiana.

He sat home for 6 months then the phone rang. They wanted to know if he wanted his derrick job back in Brazil.

Right away he said" You bet!, I guess Y'all finally figured out that I was better than that monkey huh?"

They said" No sir, the monkey made tool pusher, he's the one that told us to call you."

    Oilfield Joke: The Company Man....

    A company man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a Man below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me,
    can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I
    don't know where I am."

    The Man below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering
    approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees
    north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

    "You must be a Drilling Engineer," said the Company Man. 

    "I am," replied the Man,
    "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the Company Man, "everything you told me is, technically
    correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information, and the fact
    is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything,
    you've delayed my trip."

    The Drilling Engineer below responded, "You must be a Company Man." "I am," replied the Company Man, "but how did you know?"

    "Well," said the Drilling Engineer, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault."

      Oilfield Joke: Two Roughnecks Leave a Bar....

      Two hard working rough necks left the bar after a long night of drinking at a back woods bar and got into their truck. 

        Jed was driving and he started it up. After a couple of minutes of driving, an old man's face appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly. 

      Jake screamed, "Look at the window. There's an old ghost's face there!" Jed stomped on the accelerator to speed up, but the face stayed in the window. 

      Jake rolled his window down part way and, scared out of his wits, said, "What do you want?"

      The old man softly replied, "You got a cigarette?" 

      Jake handed the old man a cigarette and yelled, "Step on it," to Jed, rolling up the window in terror.

      A few minutes later they calmed down and started laughing. 

      Jed said, "I don't know what happened, but don't worry... the speedometer says we're doing 80 now." 

      All of a sudden there was a light tapping on the window and the old man reappeared.

      "There he is again," Jake yelled. He rolled down the window and shakily said, "Yes?"

      "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asked. Jake threw a lighter out the window saying, "Step on it!"

      Now The speedometer showed they were driving about 100 miles an hour, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden there came some more tapping.

      "Oh my God! He's back!" Jake rolled down the window and screamed in stark terror, "ARGHHHHHHH WHAT NOW?"

      The old man gently replied, "Hey, Do you guys want some help getting your truck out of the mud?"

        Oilfield Joke: Working in the Marcellus is a little different...

        Three dirt contractors were bidding on building a drilling location in the Marcellus Shale located within the city limits of a large metropolitan area.

        One was from New York, another from Texas, and the third from Kansas. Both the contractor from Texas and Kansas were new to doing business in the Marcellus and were ready to bid the job to get it. 

        The young City Administrator was very eager to get the project started and was happy to have the three contractors bidding on this work.


        First the Kansas dirt contractor took his measurements, went away to make some calls and came back and said, "I figure the job will run about $9000. I bid $4000 for materials, $4000 for my crew, and $1000 profit for me."


        Next was the Texas dirt contractor. He also took out his measurements, went away to make some calls and with a confident smile said, "Looks like I can do this job for $7000. I bid $3000 for materials, $3000 for my crew, and $1000 profit for me."


        Finally, the City Administrator asks the New York dirt contractor for his bid. 


        Without batting an eye, the contractor says, "$27,000."


        The young City Administrator's jaw drops, incredulous, looks at him and says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys!


        How did you come up with such a high figure?"


        "Easy," says the contractor from New York, "$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Texas."
