Blue Light Report - March / April 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I have dedicated my report to only one subject because I, along with Justin and the rest of my staff, agree it is the most value we can provide the clients. And we need to continue to capitalize on it now while the opportunity is at hand.

Blue Light Report Texas - November / December 2019

I have just returned from CRC in Houston, visiting the hands working for Price Gregory and Michels Pipeline. They are running procedures for Enterprise and Exxon Mobil. The word I got at CRC is that we have several contractors bidding the 600 miles of 36” for Enterprise in Texas that runs from Wink to Webster. There are seven spreads being bid, and they want to start in November. Hopefully, by the time you read this report, we will know if our contractors have been successful or not.

Most of the jobs in Texas are starting to wind down, and some are already complete. Michels picked up some directional drills around Houston, Texas, but at this time, I do not have a starting date. Rumors are going around about several other jobs that have gone to fair contractors, possibly starting sometime in January. 

Again, my wife and I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to all our 798 family, UA family, and our friends for the phone calls, text, cards, and most importantly all the prayers. Tuffy is on the road to recovery, and we are making forward steps every day that are all positive. We still have a long, hard road ahead of us, but with the help and love of the Lord and all of you, we are going to beat this. There are a lot of phone calls I never got a chance to return, and I do apologize. If you are trying to reach me, please leave a message or text me, I will get in touch with you as soon as I can. My cell phone number is 918-633-3435.  

This is the last Blue Light report in 2019, so I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. May GOD BLESS!
