Your take on the gas companies??

Since gas drilling is here to stay I wanted to see what everyones experience has been with your local drilling/gas company. I know I have my opinion on some of them both good and bad. What has been your experience and who do you think are the good guys or bad. Here is an article attached about one of the companies I think are on the top of my good list. I like the way they operate...

Re: Your take on the gas companies??

I'm OK with Talisman, I belieive they try to do a good job with the residents of the area in mind... I hear from the drivers delievering to them and providing services to the pads that they are very strict and don't want any complaints coming in from the locals... All my dealings they have been very cordial always ask if I have any problems or concerns... Some even want to hunt with me this season...they like beagles!! What more could I ask for?

I'm also happy with Talisman, the only face to face meetings I had was at a community get together. I do get fast responses to emails I've sent to the main contact on their webpage.

Find their local office. That would be the best way to contact any of the companies. Most have offices in the state or some sort of satilite contact information....I'll dig and see what I find......being in sales I have learned over many years that a face to face meeting always delivers more results and better ones too.

Re: Your take on the gas companies??

And here is an article on one of this biggest issues facing the industry....lazy cement jobs and one of my least favorite companies listed.....Cheesapeak
One of their biggest problem wells is right outside Wysox, PA....blowing methane like Mt. Fiji with Godzilla sitting on it....

Re: Your take on the gas companies??

In Athens Boro, where several homes were flooded, CHK sent in there crew from Great Plains to supply manual labor to anyone they could help. Great Plains is owned by CHK. They help carry flood debris out,pump basements, caryy the undamaged stuff out etc..etc..

During cleanup they supplied manual labor, loaders , skid steers and dump trucks to haul away all the flood trash, and there was a lot!

They supplied trucks to wash the mud off the streets so you could walk without slipping in mud.

they supplied cleaning supplies as well as water.

They did all of that and much more without being asked for help. They are still looking at ways to help.

Now I do realize that not everything they do is good, but when company's (talisman,chk,cheif,etc etc) step up and supply this much help for local comunitys, in a time when that type of help is badly needed, it's truely a good deed on there part.

I know from speaking to people who recieved that help that it was greatly appreciated.

I did not notice Dupont, Osram Sylvania, Mills Pride,CVS, Craftmaster or other large local corps doing nearly as much as the gas companys.

People may not be glad the business is in town, but they were certainly glad for the help.

Your never to old to learn something stupid
