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."

    Oilfield Joke: Three Drilling Engineers wake up in Mexico....

    Three  Drilling Engineers recently graduated from colleges in Texas and to celebrate their good fortune of landing new jobs in the Eagle Ford Shale, they went down to Mexico one night, got drunk and woke up in jail.

    They found out that they were to be executed for their crimes but none of them could remember what they had done.

    The first one is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if he has any last words. 

    He says, "I am from Baylor, a Baptist University, it is a God fearing School and I believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent." 

    They throw the switch and nothing happens, so they figure God must not want this guy to die, and they let him go. 

    The second one is strapped in and gives his last words. "I am from the University of Texas School of Law and I believe in the eternal power of Justice to intervene on the part of the innocent." 

    The switch is thrown and again nothing happens. They figure that the law is on this guy's side and let him go. 

    The last one is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm a Texas Aggie Electrical Engineer, and I'll tell you right here and now, that you'll never be able to electrocute anybody if you don't plug this wire into that wall socket over there."

    R.I.P Texas Aggie.....

      Oilfield Joke: A Driller's Dog...

      An Oilman heard that a local Drilling contractor had a blue heeler for sale that could talk.  Intrigued, he drove to the contractor's house to investigate. 


       He was met at the yard gate by a blue heeler that said, "Howdy."

      Astonished, the oilman replied, "It's true... You can talk.  Tell me about yourself." 

      The blue heeler said, "Well, I discovered my gift of talking pretty young and I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running. The jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger and I wanted to settle down. So I took a job with the drilling contractor as a consultant, got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired." 

      The Drilling Contractor came out as the dog was telling his story.  When the dog finished, the Oilman asked the  Contractor what the dog was worth. 

      The contractor said, "I'll be lucky if I can get $10 for him." 

      The Oilman said, "This dog is amazing. Why on earth do you think he's only worth $10?" 

      The contractor replied, "Because the dog is a habitual liar.  

      Just like now, He is lying ... He never worked for the CIA."

        Oilfield Joke: Wildcatter's New Son in Law...

        A successful Wildcatter's daughter married a roughneck and the father had a meeting with his new son-in-law.  "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man.

        "To show how much we care for you, I've made you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go out into the patch every day and learn the operations."

        The roughneck interrupted, "I hate just driving around.  I can't stand the lack of dangerous activity."

        "I see," replied the father-in-law.  "Well, then you can work in the office and take charge of some of the operations."

        "I hate office work," said the roughneck.  "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day."

        "Wait a minute," said the father-in-law.  "I just gave you half interest in a profitable business, but you don't like field work and won't work in a office.  What am I going to do with you?"

        "Easy," said the roughneck… "Buy me out."

          Oilfield Joke: Young Salesman goes Golfing...

          A young Oilfield Salesman who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in 9 holes before he had to head home.

          Just as he was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the
          tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was
          golfing alone.

          Not being able to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him.

          To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the
          ball far but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time.

          They reached the ninth fairway, and the young salesman found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball, directly between his ball and the green.

          After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man
          finally said, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right
          over that tree."

          With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard and hit the ball right smack into the top of the tree trunk, where it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally been.

          The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only 3 feet tall."

            That was the case this past Friday during the Oilfield Appreciation,  Barnett Shale - North Texas Sporting Clay Classic that was held at Alpine Shooting Range in Fort Worth. 

            The courses were full and big smiles were seen everywhere. The Pure Adventure guys were at it again with side games like Paintball Flurry, Apple Archery, Onion Sling Shot and the crazy fruit launching Air Cannon that sent some of those limes into the stratosphere. 

            High overall team score on the Red Course went to Harold Fisher - 72, Alan Smith - 83, Gene Hearne - 86, Bud Romine - 78 and David Ivie - 82 of Team JO COX with a combined score of 401. 

            High overall team score on the Black Course went to Don Richey - 91, David Richey - 95, Joe Richey 83, Dale Breeden - 82 and Jason Brown - 85 of Team TRUE DIRECTIONAL SERVICES with a combined score of 436. 

            High overall individual on the Red Course was Elman Medoff with a 93. 

            High overall individual on the Black Course was a tie between Blake Elms and David Richey both with a very nice 95. 

            A huge Thank You to all of our Sponsors and Volunteers that came together and created this wonderful event. 

            Congratulations to those that walked away with the many guns, gear and outstanding hunting and fishing trips! We enjoy giving them away.

              Oilfield Joke: Two Elderly Oilmen...

              Two very elderly oilmen were out driving in a large car. As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The oilman in the passenger seat thought to himself "I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light."

              After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again and again they went right though. This time the oilman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that he was losing it. He was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on.

              At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through and he turned to the other oilman and said, "FRED! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us!"

              Fred turned to him and said, "Oh, am I driving?"


              This is the Last call for the North Texas - Barnett Shale Sporting Clay Classic. 

              Cook Teams, Sponsors and Volunteers do not get left out this year. Sign up today!
