The news release ( cudd well control in India ) dated April 13
1.States that after cudd arrived on location in India, everything got worse - Quote "The fire spread to two more wells, eventually collapsing the platform around the wells". This sound like another very expensive law suite. Will Cudd Survive?
2.The same release claims that cudd is a industry leader. Let's look at the facts. Cudd's revenue for 98 was under 100mm while Halliburton's revenue for the same services was over 450mm.
Hello Wellcontrol, I checked the facts and you were right! HOWCO's revenues for the one well control project they worked on in 1998 were $450 million! Boy, that's really good. I am firmly convinced that they'll do better on their next job. With a little luck and outside help, they can probably get the job total down at least 10 percent! Wouldn't that be wonderful. And, who knows, they may learn enough to be able to determine the difference between a pump truck and a wireline truck. But, that may be expecting too much. HOWCO would have made a lot more money by sticking to things they know something about - like pumping cement. At least, there was a time Halliburton knew something about pumping cement. With all the distractions, they may not know how to do that anymore. Oh well, that's considered progress on wall street.
Mr. Spider, Lets start off on the right foot here. I am a Wel (Boots & Coots) stock holder, I came over here to the competitions board to check out the latest "poop" and I read what you have to say. I am also in the "bussiness" and know that each well has it's own personality, you, me, him, or for that matter no one can tell each well what to do, it tells you! I wasn't on the well in India, I wasn't on the well in California or any of these wells so I can't and neither can you, say with any amount of honesty who was right or wrong or who was successful or not! I don't know who you or, nor do I care, but all of the people in both of these companies are professional and able to carry out their jobs. Now who is better, that is up to the customer on each individual job to say.
When a bunch of "old ladies" get together and spread a bunch of gossip it is fun, but when all is said and done the fools are the gossips not the one who is gossiped about because what goes round comes round. You have done nothing but make yourself look foolish and very very unprofessional! you will not break a company on a chat line, especially one as strong and capable as B & C or one as big as Halliburton nor will they break or make Cudd. That is kind of like the flea crawling up the elephants leg with rape on his mind. Give me a break,,,,please!It is time to call a halt to this crap and get back to the business at hand!
Hello Wellcontrol, Everyone knows why HOWCO's revenue is so much more than anyone elses. They don't know how to kill a well. Eight kill attempts in California? Wellcontrol, you need to change your name to something else since you obviously don't know how to kill a well. No one can fail 8 times! Plus, HOWCO is well known for having everything in Duncan on location and charging twice as much as anyone else would charge. So, that's how revenues can be so high. But, the industry will catch on - maybe. You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. Anyone who knows anything about real wild well control knows Cudd's ability to do anything is greater than all of HOWCO combined. Bob Cudd knows more about well control than everybody put together at HOWCO. HOWCO should stick to running pump trucks and cementing wells. There was a time that they were good at that. Now, they're just one of the crowd. On any given day, they couldn't pump a good yellow dog off location.
Those statements about Louisiana are wrong, cruel, and unnecessary. If you are who I think you are, you of all people should not be throwing rocks.
