Good Way to Gain Insight Across the Industry
After 4 years working as a frac field engineer, I am enjoy listening to other people’s perspective on their sector. Across the whole life of a well, there are so many different processes that take place. I know in my position I don’t get to overlap with much besides wireline and occasionally coil. These podcasts give me give me something constructive to do when I’m in the truck for a few hours. Keep them coming.
Worth a Listen
This is a great way to get a brief overview of different sides of the industry that many don’t have any visibility to. I highly recommend this podcast.
