Did you know about DOB?

DOB can stand for Diesel Oil Bentonite. Diesel and Bentonite when mixed together and pumped down a wellbore can form a ‘gunk’ plug that is sometimes used to control lost circulation.  If you add cement then it becomes DOBC. Increase the concentration of cement two times and it becomes DOBC2


The other DOB? Well that might be the Daily Oil Bulletin, published daily. Every news bulletin/paper should have a motto. For the New York Times it is “All the News That’s Fit to Print”.


Our suggestion for the DOB is to have a picture of Chicken Little in the masthead right next to the words “The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling”
