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.

Great introduction to the different segments of the industry

I’ve gained plenty of insight into a few other parts of the industry that I hadn’t been super familiar with. Great resource for anyone entering the industry or just curious about a different part of it.
