Bill Murchison has more than fifty years of experience in the drilling industry. He has worked all over the world and in some of the most difficult drilling areas.

During his career, Bill has collected case histories and stories that are not only interesting, but more importantly, they instruct us. The Tales From The Oil Patch teach us about: life in the oil patch, perils in the oil patch, effective communication, drilling principles, and many other topics. It is a must read for anyone in the drilling industry.

"I have known, worked with and admired Bill Murchison for about twenty years. In that time, I have found him to be a man full of integrity, wisdom, and humor. He has an overall knowledge of oil well drilling, based on about fifty years of extensive experience, research and study, that is second to none in my estimation. He has an uncanny ability to get to the heart of a problem and the patience to work out a solution.

This book, Tales From The Oil Patch, is a compilation of stories and events, sometimes humorous and sometimes deadly serious, each teaching a lesson of prevention or cure. The drilling person will find these lessons to be extremely valuable. One who works in related fields, or is somewhat knowledgeable in oil field operations will find these stories to be very interesting, informative and exciting."
