“I once told a friend, ‘This is the kind of market that builds character.’ If it gets any worse, you’ll have more character than Abe Lincoln.” – Boone Pickens (1928-2019)

It’s an understatement that a lot of us have been building character in the oil & gas industry these days, it seems to be one hit after the other. In fact, natural gas prices have remained deflated for over a decade. The longer prices stay down, the more companies look for strategies to cut costs and improve margins. Knowing the industry well is the first step to take as you work to help your organization negotiate its way through these trying times. Critical to your success will be training and preparation.
