re: The Texas House foolishly tries to overturn Denton's fracking ban - fiyahbyrd157
The problem with that is most of the time its not extremely cheap. All natural gas is not created equal. While the general population thinks that is so, the BTU content varies greatly. Not to mention any CO2 or H2S present. If the BTU content (or CO2/H2S) of the natural gas being flared is too high ...

re: Wings in Houston? - fiyahbyrd157
Place is pretty good. Since they've cracked down on the "no loitering" policy its not bad stopping in. First time I stopped in a homeless man was outside and stopped me on the way out to ask if had any change. As others have said, its a cash only place. I couldn't blatantly lie to his face and I...

re: Masters in petroleum engineering - fiyahbyrd157
If you have a relatively decent GPA you could always look for a job with one of the big service companies in their MWD/Directional Drilling service line. Work for about 2 years with them, exploit their training programs, then move on to an operator. ...

re: alternative minimum tax - fiyahbyrd157
If you make over the exemption threshold, you only have to pay AMT if the AMT calculation exceeds your 1040 regular tax calculation. As someone else said this usually occurs when you have lots of personal deductions on your 1040 (multiple children, education credit, etc). I won't go into inco...

Need some advice on restaurant in Chicago. Something a little more upscale, like a nice steakhouse or Italian. Lost a bet and now I have a dinner date in chi-town. Last trip I boozed it up all weekend at DePaul and didn't get to explore the restaurant scene. Anyone been and know a good place to ...

re: Oil field position: Field Specialist Good or no good? - fiyahbyrd157
Yea, If you go work for a Major you'll start 2 on/2 off as a company man before they move you into the office. If you go the service company route you'll start in the field anyway....

re: Oil field position: Field Specialist Good or no good? - fiyahbyrd157
I still go to the field. Not really to do any "field work" but just to visit and make sure things are still running smoothly. ETA: I usually schedule my field visits around football games/events that I want to attend. So I'll drive to Shreveport Tuesday/Wednesday then Nola/BR for the weekend a...

re: Oil field position: Field Specialist Good or no good? - fiyahbyrd157
Yea, that's the easiest way to get into drilling. Another way to make your way to drilling engineer is to go work for a service company for a year or two then make the jump to to the operator side. Almost every young engineer in our office has gone this route....
