Knocking on Doors in Louisiana

Mine too, reminds of the good days when we were all making money. I was creating hundreds of good paying jobs every month.

I’m hurting right along side my mariners every day this drags on.


#1442

I hear all the inland boats are still plugging away…


#1443

Sir I would be grateful to be on one of your vessels when things get better. I love
the Gulf of Mexico. Where do I send the box of Omaha Steaks? :slight_smile:

MiSERABLE PHUCKING BASTARD!


#1448

Seems like the kidding is getting a little Patrick Swayze…
Who are we talking about? I got to know what I am walking into besides
a terrible job market on the Gulf. Thx


#1449

Ok I get it now. Read enough threads to realize that Jeaux Boss is
a boogie man composite of the ruthless owner of a fleet. Well I guess
I will learn soon enough. Keep this thread alive!

I love Louisiana!
I love the Gulf of Mexico!
I love working on a ship!

I hope in two years we get more overtime than we can stand!

"overtime. "

WTF is “overtime” ?!?!?!

Isn’t that something that happens in Sports when the teams are tied at the end of regular play?


#1452

yeah I had a feeling mentioning overtime would cause laughter

If you’re looking for overtime, go deep sea. I’m not sure where your enthusiasm for the GOM comes from as it does not appear to come from experience. It’s obviously not a good time for anyone, especially a greenhorn, to get into the oil patch right now so it might serve you to look at other options. Jus’ sayin’.


#1454

You are absolutely right; I know nothing about the GOM industry.
I enjoyed being on the USNS Yano in Violet, LA. I was in the SUP
but left it for the MFOW. Between those unions I thought the Gulf
was the only place I could go. Mentioning overtime was just a joke. I rarely
worked it when given the option; I was beat from already working hard
at the end of watch/day work. I guess my enthusiasm comes from being
a tourist and not a real participant. You can bet though when things
pick up I will give it a try. Always grateful for the advice.


#1455

You should have stayed on that ship, if possible. The gulf Is long way from hiring again.


#1456

Yes, I agree it would be nice to see my thread more active with people getting jobs, down here, like it used to be.
But, everyone is affected by the price of oil, including my business.
Some of the smaller boat companies could not maintain their loans and the banks have picked up their boats.
The banks don’t really want boats, but, it is what it is.
If you still have a job, I am sure you are most appreciative, even though you have taken salary cuts.

Hopefully, there will be a turn around, one day, soon.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, all.

Until then, keep in mind, that if you or anyone you know is in need of nice, affordable lodging while taking classes at the ECO Galliano Training Center, I do still offer a discounted rate of $70/night for all ECO employees and would appreciate seeing a few mariners, now and then.

If I can be of help to any of you, please email me at claudettelp@charter.net, PM, or call (985) 537-6773

Unfortunately, this article written back in April refers only to land drilling in certain areas of Texas (such as the Permian Basin) which have very low production costs (under $20 per barrel in the best location). This article has no relevance to offshore oil drilling, except perhaps, to show that land drilling will recover first and probably further delay any offshore drilling recovery.

that’s from basically a headhunter. Of course they’re going to say there a hiring frenzy right around the corner.
