    Hi everybody,

    First of all thanks everybody for your help!. The director is not sure now about placing the story in an oil rig. As I don´t want to bother you, let´s leave this scouting standing by until we have a more accurate idea of what he wants. If he takes up again with the oil rig as the ideal location, I will ask for your invaluable help once again.

    Ok. Jaime … thank you for your cordiality … if you need, in Chile we have beautiful locations with petroleum.Best Regards.

    I am a very qualified scout in the Southwest US. (I have also worked extensively in Canada and Mexico.
    between New Mexico and Texas there are dozens of rigs drilling right now. Unfortunately they are only on location for about a month and the average is actually about 3 weeks. (Longer at times…but that is rare)
    Lat year alone i worked on 4 energy/oil related projects.
    I would focus efforts in Roswell, NM or Midland, Texas. (if you are looking for land based operations) If you are looking for ocean/sea locations in the states it would be best to look into Texas Gulf Coast or Alabama Gulf Coast.
    Let me know if we can help you.
