Agenda October to November '13

Agenda October  to November 2013

The desert Job

Doug Short has me along as his off-sider for my third job as consultant. No contracts except handshakes so far, lots of travel food and beer along with a Grand Final.

Waiting for spud and beds at the site. Innamincka, Copley, bed stops along the way- Big Stars, big trucks.

WIll have to investigate graphics programs to do composite logsStarted the desert job end of September, looks like will finish end of October.

Job is north of Moomba, and I am consulting wellsite geologist- night shift. An old friend and colleague, Doug Short is the senior man of the desert job- I consider him as The Mentor, his experience is fantastic, and he
keeps you amused as well.

Updated Linked-In profile, and started another web site for self promotion at this site, a Facebook spin off?

There was a message from a group boss about work in Gippsland next year, so not worrying too much about that yet, nice to have a network growing out there. Wondering whether chasing up insurances have been a great idea, joining a group might mean good money not used well next year- will see what the contract is all about.

That's about the Agenda October  to November '13

Agenda October '13

Agenda October '13

Looks like a shared desert job in the old oil and gas hunting fields out of Moomba for October.

A little trip to Adelaide, then a shared drive with an old mate up north for a few weeks consultant wellsite geologist work, probably night shift or shared day work, some reports and inspections, pick a zone, all the usual.

Complete the hole, drive back south , then visit a few old friends if the old phone numbers still work, and a favourite winery visit in the Barossa, maybe a sail down the coast.

Nothing else new on the horizon past December at the moment; one of my first clients is not contactable, and I know there is some work by them coming up... A bit worried.

Ready now to be independent consultant wellsite geologist, with public liability extended, just waiting on the PI.

That's the Agenda October folks, wish me luck!
