18 Sep Need the Highest Quality Oil Drilling Equipment? Then Buy American…
If you’re looking for the best oil drilling equipment — like high-quality roll off containers, drilling rig systems, or tanks and pumps — then you won’t regret buying American. In the past few decades, millions of U.S. manufacturing jobs have moved overseas, and those proud “Made in America” labels have become rarer and rarer with each passing year. And sometimes, it’s not always clear what buying American even means.
Despite the overseas manufacturing shift, the U.S. oil and gas industry supports nearly 10 million U.S. jobs and generates an incredible 8% of the national economy. Not only that, but fracking and shale gas production has created thousands of new jobs in recent years. In 2012 alone, upstream oil and gas companies generated 4.5 billion barrels of crude oil and lease condensate proved reserves. That was a 15.4% increase over 2011 and the largest single-year increase since the 1970s. And as of 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy reports that fracking companies have drilled two million oil and gas wells, about 95% of all new wells.
In addition to the men and women working those rigs in North Dakota, Texas, Kansas, and beyond, there are the American industrial equipment manufacturers who supply them. And we feel confident in saying no one knows how to drill quite like Americans.
Plus, when you buy drilling equipment, heavy duty trailers and rigs, and tanks and pumps from U.S. companies, you can count on experience that’s hard to find anywhere else. What are some of the benefits of buying American?
- The best customer support in the world to back up the equipment you purchase. That means in-house American engineers and know-how, as well as good old fashioned American customer support working for your team.
- Only the most high-quality equipment made with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques.
- Decades of experience in the oil and gas industry.
- A company that shares your values.
As certain political elements oppose drilling and fracking with vague concerns, it’s more important than ever for U.S. oil and gas companies to support each other, creating jobs, wealth, and fuel that benefit everyone. Most importantly, there’s a reason America has been a world leader in the oil and gas industry, and will be for decades to come.
