  1. Are there Gate Guards in the area?

  2. Does anyone use Gate Guards? We have been working in South Texas for 2+ years after coming down from Colorado. Would love to go back north. We prefer the snow and cooler weather. Thanks for your help.

    Do any of these oil field service companies mentioned also offer water treatment (recycle reuse) services? I know Halliburton has their proprietary flowback water treatment technology, but are there any others too?

  4. Kevin Tallman says:

    How about trucking companies? I have heard of one trucking co in ND that is going to change the trucking industry through a new proprietary software.

    • R.T. Dukes R.T. Dukes says:

      We’ll be adding them over time.

      I seem to be hearing the software in trucking pitch a lot lately. Do you know what they are doing different?
