America working together to stave off end of the oil age

By Andrew Moran     Feb 21, 2013 in Business
Houston - Recently the oil and gas industry captured headlines in all news publications. Whether it was a new report stating the sector faces a “rollercoaster ride” or Iran building a huge oil refinery in Pakistan, Texas tea is always in the spotlight.
During the trading sessions on the New York Stock Exchange, the Toronto Stock Exchange, the German Dax or the Shanghai Stock Exchange, market experts watch the fluctuation of crude oil prices. Environmentalists monitor oil companies, politicians look for the latest tax to apply to the energy industry and media outlets gather the opinions of pundits around the world.
The fact is the energy sector is under a microscope on a consistent basis and each projection is closely scrutinized. This has been so ever since U.S. crude oil production hit its peak at 9.64 million barrels per day in 1970.
On Wednesday, Five Star Equities published a report that found the oil industry is going to reap the rewards from growing international oil demand this year. The year has already started off quite well for the oil giants, but 2013 will turn out to be even better since the United States Energy Information Administration and OPEC have raised their forecasts for demand on an international scale for the remainder of the year.
"Market fundamentals and expectations strengthened in January 2013 because of earlier than-expected cutbacks in Saudi Arabian oil production and greater optimism about economic growth, particularly in China," the EIA said in its report released this month.
Last year, it was reported that oil production in the U.S. reached its highest level since 1997. The spike in American crude oil production has occurred because of the innovations and expansion in hydraulic fracturing.
Although they don’t make the headlines, private firms that assist in the entire difficult, expensive and time-consuming process are major factors as to whether or not oil is pulled from the ground. A company that aids the industry is Stallion Oilfield Holdings, a Houston-based organization that offers logistical, production, equipment rental and support services to oil and gas operators nationwide.
Stallion Oilfield Holdings offers its expertise in the areas of oilfield trucking, wellsite construction, drilling support, surface equipment rentals, camp complexes and remediation services. Founded in 2002, these services, which have led Stallion to become one of the largest providers in the nation, have become imperative to numerous American oil and gas firms.
When crews perform their daily tasks on worksite operations, Stallion Oilfield Holdings helps “bring the rest” by renting out forklifts, pumps, light towers, generators, trash containers and much more equipment and tools to get the job completed.
After the oilworkers end the day, they relax in a comfortable, spacious and nice living quarters. Skimming at its list of living quarters, it offers “Company man quarters,” “Directional driller quarters,” “Crew quarters,” “Change House” and other designs that provide bedrooms, air conditioning, televisions, washer and dryer and other household items for downtime.
Essentially, the best way to describe the company is to compare it to a corporation like Home Depot but for the oil and gas industry. Instead of selling a range of tools for different projects, the company lends tools, gear, machines and other equipment specifically for the oilfield industry, its many different environments and workers.
By moving forward with its success, Stallion Oilfield Holdings has remained a well-oiled machine by having a team that maintains decades of experience. Craig Johnson, who is president and CEO of Stallion Oilfield Holdings, has more than two decades of experience in the oil sector. Another executive is Michael Michalka, Vice President of Marketing, who maintains roughly 30 years of oil industry experience.
It has nearly 2000 employees and 65 locations across the U.S., including the South Texas, the Gulf Coast, Alaska, Rocky Mountain and Appalachian Basin regions.
Its management, its staff, its products, its services and other aspects help crews “Stay Well Focused.”
