Hi everyone,

Although this is the first time I've ever posted here, I've actually been reading your posts for some time now. I was born and raised in South Jersey just across the river from Philly, but Like Forest Bee Keeper I was in the navy and lived in sevral states on the east coast ( FL,NJ,PA,DE,MA and CT ). What I found durning this time was that the home state I was use to in NJ is not the place I want to live. Northren New England and especially the mid coast section of Maine haunt me. I want to go back so badly. The impediments for me are the usual suspects from this forum especially employment. Presently I work as an oil refinery supervisor, This is where I hope you might help, I have been trying to compile a list of possible employment sites that I can watch for a job opening that may make my move north possible. Places such as Chemical companies, oil terminals, power plants, utilities companies etc... I have seen Sprague energy has a terminal in Searsport and there are a couple more down in Portland, anyone work/know someone who works there? I was wondering what the pay scales are like. Well if anyone has some info to help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

I have no answers to any of your questions.

I do know a local guy who works in the oil industry in Nigeria. He works six weeks on and six weeks off. He makes great money! He maintains an apartment there and a home and family here.

He has offered me a job if I wanted to go back into security.

He has told me that most of the guys that he works with are American, Dutch, and English, and they all rotate six weeks / six weeks.

He has told me that Nigeria accounts for 25% of US oil. Is that true?

I really don't know Forest, diffrent refineries but their oil from diffrent places depending on the type of processing equipment they have. Oil is actually pretty diverse in its componet make up as well as impurities especially sulphur content.

NJ, You can edit your own posts for a few minutes after you post it.

We may be getting an LNG terminal near Eastport, but it won't be up and running for at least 2 years, maybe 3.

The LNG terminal in Eastport is also a great tip, wouldn't happen to know who plans on building it would you? If not I can probably find out somewhere on the net. Thanks

There are two proposed facilities. One is by Quoddy LNG, and the other is by Downeast LNG. Downeast is backed by Kestrel Energy Partners and their plan calls for it to go into Robbinson area.
