Well A square .. Mine will be Ok for some time ..as long as they need to push natural gas through pipe lines and compress it ..I should be good ..We have a lot of Compressor packages out here that were (My Company) rent to these oil companies and we also work on the ones they own ..most of which are as old as the wells ......Hell this platform still has a sign in the head that says do not throw cigarette buts in the urinal ...now thats old ..considering the rules for smoking now days ....

You told Me that some time ago ....If its a Tennessee gas pipe line station ..I have done the overhaul on their gas Turbine in the past ...Hell I have done most of their overhauls through out Mississippi , Louisiana .and a couple in Texas ....For some time I didnt know G.E. made any thing bigger than a frame 3 gas Turbine ....then we lost that contract and I started working on the Frame 6 and 7 series ..did a few frame 5 turbines also ...
Now I just do what ever the company Im with right now has ..and thats compressors , reciprocating and rotating and grouting in pump foundations also ....

A Square , there is a lot of work in the field ...through out the country ....I think in that area our office combines Canada and the states together for that region ..the workers have special visas or passes to go back and forth across the border ....the regional Manager is a Canadian ...when I met Him in Houston for My safety award last year He seen photos of My Hobby ...and one of Me shooting a .50 cal sniper rifle .... He out right told Me He did not condone such a hobby ...

now thats a bit of a pi$$er , he really has no right , but i guess free speech applies to management as well as the rest of the world - so i suppose he could say it , dont let the buggers get you down - what

but my friend neil is a three gunner , a big guy , who carries a desert eagle as a concealed carry - i know this because during a match he had to put it in the car to comply with match rules , no-one knew he had it and none could figure out where he had it concealed - hes a big guy but thats a big gun not to print in a tight T-shirt , i want him on my six when the SHTF because hes fast and accurate ,

A Square ..all the other Big Bosses looked at Him like He was nuts ..Every one got a kick out of My Photos ..that each one had a gun or guns in them ........They all Loved the .50 cal. ....You should have heard the room roll with laughter when that picture came up ....  Wonder if that had any thing to do with Me being Safety champion of the year for the east coast division ????
