Is GGS putting people on the Marathon gates now? Does anyone know where the Marathon gates are located? The last I heard was that Marathon was still in the process of obtaining official possession of the leases, but that was a week or so ago. It sounds like GGS has a lot of people wanting jobs. At least the Marathon gates will put some of them to work.


I have a friend that went to GG in Corpus a few days ago. He was told there are about 30 ahead of him. Also, there has been a change in getting whatever security clearance one needs for the job.

What are the changes? By the State or GG?

We are waiting but hope it will be late next week before we get a gate. Should be soon, I think.

I do not see the tie in of employee vs. contract for the search by the leasing company!

"Pioneer will come to your RV with their K-9 and ask to search the RV. Your option, but a no sends you packing". Well I am glad to read your post. We were looking into this but there is no way we would work for anyone with this Nazi style treatment. We will stick with campground host where they respect your home as your PRIVATE property.

Good to hear you got a gate. Hope you have good people to work for. We mostly work days there have been a few late nite deliveries. Very dusty but the company keeps the road watered down. We are on a hunting ranch the wild life is really neat. Got a picture of a 10 point buck seen bobcats, havalina, all types of birds, and a mountain lion 3 different times.

Our site is a Nabor's lease. Seem to be pretty good to work for but only have the first 12 hours to go by. Not checking in and out until tomorrow and then only the 4 wheelers, company man said to wave the semis on through until the rig is on site.
Our gate is pretty much right next to the drilling pad so we have front row seats for all the action. Looking forward to what tomorrow brings.

Last April we were on a Nabors Drilling unit and right next to the pad. Found that the "watching" was GREAT! However after only 12 days our rigs were spotted with diesel and crude they blow off the platform and got into the wind and covered them! Took me over two days to just get the spots off the top of the MH!!! Never was so clean but what a job!

Hope you are never down wind from them...which is hard to do in TX!

Have a good stay. Maybe we can meet for lunch sometime in one of the towns. Some of us did this last Spring at McDonalds just so we knew each other. Might help that when one of us needs a spell or break and someone is "resting' waiting for a gate they can spell each other.
