  1. I’m trying to find out if any of these companies are hiring for security. Prior to leaving my job of over 15 years (US Border Patrol) I ran into a gentleman that was employed by a large drilling company from the Cotulla Texas area.. He advised me that former Border Patrol Agents were being hired to work security details. He wasn’t sure which company was doing the hiring. Is anyone familiar with this information?

  2. Thanks!

  3. My son has experience in the pipelines and is looking for a job. Do you know where they are hiring and where he can apply. We live in south texas.

  4. Do you know where they will be building there new “Eagle Ford” office .

      I believe BHP has about 100 open positions, so I suspect they will be looking for people with all backgrounds.
