I get that truck drivers have a single job, to operate their equipment, and rarely understand drilling/completions operations; but I just turned a vac truck away who showed up to a drilling rig to deliver completion fluids that didn’t just speak little English, but was completely illiterate. It’s a little out of the norm in S TX for completion Fluids to be delivered to a drilling rig (some displace the production casing string with it during cementing); but this guy was WAAAAY away from where he was supposed to go and just showed up because he saw the Derrick lights. In dealing with Vac Truck companies, we’ve got a short list of companies and request particular drivers (the ones that understand and execute basic instructions) Is this a big issue in the Permian, DJ, and Bakken too? Do any of the company men on here flat out tell trucking companies that if their drivers can’t understand instructions in English not to send them? My Great-Grandparents had to learn English rapidly to make ends meet when they got here & I fail to understand why it’s no longer the case.
