Oilfield Service Industry Expands in South Texas

Eagle Ford drilling has gone from virtually zero in 2008 to more than 200 rigs today. Those rigs and subsequent wells require a substantial commitment from oilfield service companies. Not only are the companies working the play, but they are breaking ground on permanent offices:

The four offices listed above will add several thousand South Texas oilfeld jobs in the San Antonio area alone.

  1. Charlie Wood says:

    I have been serching for a company that is willing to train future employees to get their cdl certified. I have visited several technical schools and there are numerous OTR Companies that are willing to train with contracts to their company. Are there any Oilfield companies willing to train for CDL operators.

  2. Jason Palmer says:

    Does your company use h2s monitoring equiptment?

  3. Stephen Williams says:

    I’m a real estate broker in Pearsall, and am currently advertising in your market place ads. My frustration is in the inability to find the right person with oil companies to talk to about housing availability. Contacting “the company” doesn’t help much if the message never gets to the right person. There’s a lot of erroneous information floating around about the unavailability of housing in certain markets. There’s a shortage for sure, but if the right company guy was talking to the right real estate guy, I think lot’s more could get done. Any advice?

    • R.T. Dukes R.T. Dukes says:

      Make sure your ads effectively communicate your services and look for the companies in need. The oilfield is a difficult market to crack because there are so many suppliers. That means there are a ton of phone calls and solicitors. You have to think about how to differentiate yourself. Online advertising is a great start.

      Best of luck,

    • Are you still looking for oilfield housing? I have a man camp 100% occupied but the tenants are not renewing their lease and will be out by Dec. 1, 2014

  4. Jeffrey D. Orozco says:

    I am a professional who’s worked in construction doing many things, mostly wallpaper, sheet rock, painting and carpentry, for 17 years, and for the last 7 years I’ve been working at a Liquor & Wine distributor. I have experience in powered lifts and jacks and am used to lifting heavy loads. I see all the money guys are making in this field and really want to break into the field but have no experience in the oil business. I need to find an entry level job with a company that will hire and train and I know they’re out there but don’t know how to contact them. I like in San Antonio, Texas close the the Eagle Ford Shale region and am also willing to relocate or work out of town. I also recently obtained my Class A permit from the DPS office….need some help, thank you.

  5. Armando says:

    Hi, I was working about 5 months for an oilfield services company. I was a welder’s helper, then started helping out one of the crews after a while setting up battery, separator, and heater tanks. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the work but things got slow and layoffs happened. That was my first time working in that type of work field and I’d like to get back to it. I don’t know exactly what my position was called and I don’t know if any company would hire me with the little experience I had. I was wondering if maybe you could point me in the right direction as to where to start looking.

    • Jesse-

      There are a few companies out there. Some you will absolutely want to stay away from:

      Tier 1/Timekeepers
      Gate Guards, Inc.

      Some that are better run:

      Doyon (headed up by retired BP)
      Pristine Haven
