Been working in the oilfield/fracking and just got laid off a couple of weeks ago. Anybody got any good leads on hauling sand/water/crude in the east Texas area? Working in the oilfield I have learned to be very flexible as far as time, travel, etc. I do have my Tanker and Hazmat endorsements too. Any insight would be appreciated. I am about to get on this sites 'looking for jobs' deal and start there. Thanks again for any info.

Relax, ride it out for a bit. Big issue right now is simple: the Saudis increased production over the Iran nuke negotiations. Essentially, the Saudis currency traded into a $780b surplus, but even there, it will only last so far. The Iranians most likely will screw it up. The Saudis are fighting a proxy Iranian presence with rebels in Yemen, right on their border.

We can make money at $60/bbl. But investors dont want to wait on return. $75 will put us great guns again. Be patient, and when it does come back, adjjst your lifestyle 20% lower. Young guys go hog wild buyin trinkets and toys. Cant do that in a bust/boom deal like energy.

Good luck!

I don't know if you want to go that far but ND oil fields are still booming last I heard.

Go to Indeed.com and request what city u want to work in. Still plenty of oilfield jobs available if your willing to relocate.
