      Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback! You are absolutely right with the saving money advice. The Oil & Gas industry runs in cycles of ups and downs directly tied to the price of Oil, and unfortunately the current price doesn't support as much drilling activity. We look forward to a future of higher prices and increased business that supports more jobs and career opportunities for our employees.

      Rig move cycle is a minus reason being that even if they tell you not to get in a rush you still end up getting rushed.
