23,000 MORE oil jobs are in Texas!

Oil-field services companies added 23,000 jobs just a few weeks ago as drilling activity recovers from the pandemic-driven oil bust.

The jobs report from the Energy Workforce & Technology Council, however, is based on preliminary data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and might change in routine revisions. Revised figures released recently show the sector lost 7,700 jobs in February, about 2,300 fewer than the 10,000 reported last month. Revised data for January increased job losses by eightfold to about 1,300 compared with the 166 reported last month.

Most of the job losses took place in Texas and Louisiana, which lead the nation in oil and gas production, according to the monthly report compiled by the council. The Houston-based trade group represents more than 600 member companies that drill and complete wells and manufacture equipment for the oil and gas industry.

“The sector has been on a roller coaster the past year with a precipitous drop in jobs due to the pandemic, modest gains in the fourth quarter of 2020, and more cuts in December, January and February,” the council said in its report.

The oil-field services sector has been among the industry’s hardest hit during the pandemic, which slashed demand for oil and products such as gasoline and jet fuel. Many exploration and production companies, which hire oil-field services firms, stopped drilling new wells and halted production from existing wells for several months last year.

As crude prices climbed to about $40 a barrel this summer and above $60 a barrel last month, most oil and gas companies restarted production on existing wells and are completing wells drilled before the pandemic. Oil-field services hiring is ramping up as production rebounds!

Uber offers FREE rides to vaccination sites

Need a ride to get a vaccine? Uber (and Lyft) have you covered!

Did you know that 45% of Americans do not have access to public transportation at this time?

In an effort to help those who wish to get vaccinated Uber said last week that it has partnered with retail pharmacy chain Walgreens to offer FREE transportation to its locations and offsite vaccination clinics in cities such as Houston, Chicago, Atlanta and more!

The initiative comes after Uber pledged in December to offer 10 million free or discounted rides to assure that “transportation is not a barrier to getting the [Covid-19] vaccine.”

Uber partners with a number of health systems, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage plans to move their 65+ members. These health care organizations can call, schedule, and pay for rides to vaccine appointments on behalf of their patients and those covered by government health programs, adding that riders do not need an app or a smartphone.
