The Future

Eco implementation

I know field personel in the Bakken are extremely understaffed. I would imagine it's similar elsewhere? To layoff more people who actually work would be crazy but without a doubt we still have plenty of management overhang. Do you think this next... read more

EOI request?

Can you ask to be laid off when there aren't any planned? I'd walk away tomorrow or transition out over a several months if offered a package similar to those granted over the last couple of years. My guess is that this would be rejected outright and... read more

Why in the world did we do this?

The purchase of 27 million shares suggests an outlay of approximately $1.2 billion. How many Eagle Ford, Bakken and Delaware shale wells could have been drilled? At $1.2 MM/well, the $1.2 B would provide funds to drill 100 such wells...100 wells and... read more

I used to consider myself lucky to be "saved" by Hilcorp thinking that even though I may make slightly less money at least I would be free of all the negatives that COP possessed. Unfortunately the ONLY difference is that I make less money. So really... read more

Kudos for COP Management

Paid Time Off Interest Free Loans Outreach program These are just some of the things COP is doing during the storm to make sure their employees are ok. I talked to some people I know from other companies and they didn't get all of this. Good job COP.

Houston, you're in our thoughts

Does anyone have any information on how many of our folks have been significantly impacted? Any photos or infor on the offices? Hope we have flood insurance, we don't need more bills to pay. Wishing everyone in Houston the best!

Operations is apparently "in the zone"...and all else "with few exceptions" are "above the median". Ha! No kidding...the people in the real world are taking care of business (because they have to, to survive), and the... read more

Shut Down Bartlesville.

Are we going to continue to drag this out until next year or are we going to start getting some planning and blue print of how and when Bartlesville will be shut down? We are seeing more and more coming down from Bartlesville and seeing them placed... read more
