But potential for Mowry shale drilling is cautiously real
No, you won’t see oilfield servicing trucks jamming motel parking lots anytime soon.
Or even more to the point, the Oilfield Motel sign won’t hang this summer.
The buzz that had a large integrated energy services company buying a local motel spread like wildfire in the community in the last week. It turns out the story had more legs than traction.
Talk had it that the Super 8 Motel had been purchased — or at least a large bloc of rooms had been leased for the summer — to house employees of the oil and gas servicing company. Melody Robertson, manager of the Super 8, says there is no truth to the story, and there has been no contact for large scale room rental.
