Thanks guys.. Totally unexpected. Sat in on a planning meeting last Thursday where 3 of the top execs from Pittsburgh laid out 5 new projects to start immediately, budgets were being put together and we were looking at hiring another land agent to help out. Monday, the Canadian investment group that bought out Chesapeake and a portion of Williams midstream, pulled the plug on all projects.
It just kills me how we can go from one extreme to this without anyone having a clue. They have also started laying off company people, middle management and others.

Pretty sure the Price of gas, LNG, being to low to make the investment in more infrastructure, pipelines and drilling at this time not worth the return on investment. Also heard they wanted to increase volume beyond our capacity and were not willing to wait for us to build new pipelines to handle it so shut everything down.
My guess is they're re-evaluating their investments and looking for better ways to get better returns.
I was told to "hang in there" as they would probably call me back in October WTF?? Who has the cash to take time off until then.. not me
