Hi all, planning to lurk here for a while before writing much of anything. I'll start off with 1 short thread today, just to give the regulars here a feel for my staunchly pro - oil & gas blatherings.

I've written around 20,000 comments (and dozens of articles) about oil & gas in the last 6 or 7 years, and tend to be pretty opinionated.

For info, I was a volunteer moderator for 3 years on the old Oilpro forum, before the forum got shut down in the legal tussle between Oilpro and Rigzone.

And a couple weeks ago I walked away in frustration as a volunteer moderator on the Oil Price forum after almost 3 years, due to the forum getting flooded with Antifa type trolls and CCP shills.

My background is 20 years in international oil & gas. And I've been a freedom of speech activist for decades. I *encourage* dissent, and rational debate.

Cheers.

We would all prefer well informed rather than opinionated. Opinionated is what got this place the likes of doomer-philes, Harold Camping retreads and generally geologically uninformed folks spouting nonsense about peak oil and the Mayan calendar and every other bit of hysteria you can imagine.

20 years in international oil and gas in what capacity? Doing it, or just yakking about it?

Which part of "doing it"? Petroleum engineering, geology, geophysics, infrastructure development, chemical or mechanical engineering, offshore or on, research and geoscience perhaps?

I don't do linked in, so I can't see what particular specialty you might have been involved in.

Welcome Tom.

I look forward to seeing your comments and opinions in the threads here.

This site used to be very busy but its evolved into a smaller site in recent years. Nonetheless there are multiple people here with experience in the oil and gas biz similar to yours and oil pricing and demand and geology and well completions and fracking and other oil related issues attract good discussion. There is also some good discussion of EVs and alternative energy, ecology and climate change, international events, and, of course, US politics.

I recommend that instead of lurking that you just dive in and start posting in threads and discussions that interest you.

Have a great day.
