My husband is a Safety Consultant with Chevron, but currently working on the Transocean Drillship, The ClearLeader in the Gulf of Mexico. We live in Central Louisiana. Before this gig, he was in Angola, West Africa for almost 5 years as an Independent Safety Consultant, contracted with RTI and Chevron. Times are definatly tough on everyone involved with the oil and gas industry right now! We have so many friends without jobs! We are so very blessed to still have a steady income and give all thanks and glory to God!!! Many prayers to you ladies! It is a hard life when they are gone, but a great life during home time! We have 3 children, ages 11,6, 8 mos. so they keep me busy while daddy is working! ; )

Quoting Sarah:

my husband works for Savanna they bought out Greystone he is working in Ruston right now (we live in louisiana) but we are hoping he gets to go to Penn. cause there is like 3 years of work there right now they only have like 5 jobs lined up and he just went back to work after being laid off for 3 months


My husband went up there with his company for 3 weeks. it was hard but boy was the pay good. I hope he gets a chance to go up there. they are non-stop working right now from what my husband says.

My husband works for Diamond Offshore Drilling and is in the Gulf of Mexico (14/14 - on the Ocean Confidence). I had to laugh a little when I read your post... I am from Wyoming and live in Louisiana - husband is from here. Also my husband worked offshore for Nabors for a year or two. It never ceases to amaze me what a small world it really is! :)

I have a friend who has FM and I believe an aunt with CFS. I was unfamiliar with the acronyms. Your troubles are truly at your back door. I've got to believe that it will get better soon. Surely we won't see another depression where everyone loses their homes. I think that would cause anarchy since people would become squatters everywhere. Why would we repeat history across the U.S. I agree that we should pray and unite. It's gonna take reconnecting with neighbors to survive. Somehow there is a new enlightening period in our midst. Keep me posted on your status.


I believe what you say is true.  I, too, believe a new enlightening period is on it's way!  Take care Charlean!

I'm sorry to hear you have been ill. What is CFS/FM? We have prayed as well. It makes me ill to think that we did everything the right way. We've had many career changes and now we may inevitably lose everything. We would have to declare bankruptcy. It's happened to others before. Even one of our dearest friends has been faced with bankruptcy. One day at a time. We all need to be praying for one another. We all need to reach out to those who have lost their jobs. Many can't get assistance without losing everything because they have too much, and yet our guys were such a big part of the economy a year ago. Noone should ever be faced with this in this day and time.


CFS is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and FM is fibromyalgia.I know it's hard sometimes to think positive, but we have to try.  I think the oilfield business is going to get better.  We just have to hang in there.  I just found out that our neighbor just lost his job.  They just bought their house about a year ago.  You are right that no one should have to face these tough times.  We have to pray and be there for each other.

Quoting Charlean:

I know it is hard since he is away a lot, but you are truly blessed in that he is working. Many of our friends who worked in the area have been laid off by H&P. It is encouraging to know that so many rigs are running in our area. These small towns rely on timber, cattle, and now oil. When that all "dries-up" many of the women are sole supporters as teachers, and nurses. East Texas once had a papermill in Lufkin. It has been closed now for some time. My father-in-law works for Nahbors in Nacogdoches. He is new to the industry. Once worked for the paper-mill, then became a respiratory therapist and after losing my Mother-in-law went back into manual labor. He works on a saltwater injection well. Heat and sweat are what he knows. Somehow my guys are happy doing what they are doing. I just pray that their blood, sweat and tears will keep the economy going.


Charlean, you are so right!  I am very grateful that he is still working and praying for those who have lost their jobs.  We would really be in trouble if he lost his job.  I'm an RN, but have been sick for the last 2 years with CFS/FM and there is no way I could work now.  Every day is a struggle.  I definitely thank God that my husband has a good job to support us through these tough times.

I thought I recognized those bluebonnets. That is a beautiful area of Texas. I lived in Grimes and Montgomery Counties for almost half my life. I sometimes miss the area, but after moving back to East Texas almost 3 years ago, I am sure my husband will NEVER move badk with me. We were there together almost 10 years. I still call the area home.

He is a Superintendent in East Texas. We live in Longview, Texas. Moved here 3 years ago from Lafayette, LA . We are both from Vermilion Parish in south LA and had lived there all our lives before moving here. It's been tough for me.






We moved back to East Texas 3 years ago this July.  We were in the Montgomery County area for almost 10 years.  We moved back so that we could help care for my Mother-in-law and raise our family nearer to family.  I was raised in that area as well, but moved as a teen to East Texas to graduate from a verrrrrryy small school.  I can imagine that it has been hard since everything has changed for you and your family!  My husband is from East Texas and I had also lived about two counties away so the trees and the people haven't really been a shock.  The dialects changed even for me.  I can see how you would have a culture shock.  Hang in there.  Try to absorb the area culture.  It will help.  Do some research on Longview and places nearby.  Crazy I know, but soon you will know the spirit of the area and why the folks are who they are.  What part s of East Texas is he working in at the moment?



Thanks for the encouraging words.  It's nice to hear from someone who is familiar with the area.  My husband has aout 5 rigs right now and they are all within one to two hours from home.  When we first moved here, he had up to 9 rigs and some were far from home!  That was crazy!

My hubby works for Rowan.. We live in MS. To Kelly- My brother-in-law did (from what I understand) work for Frontier. He told me today that he got laid off. He, too, used to work for Pride and lives in Alabama!



My husband also works for Rowan (Rig 15).  We have close friends stacked in the yard in Port Aurthur.  They've been there awhile.  We believe 15 will be sent to Mexico, and only pray that wherever they are they are drilling.  God bless you.  Glad to make a contact.
