In my house, we sometimes have bizarre but short conversations about job functions. A recent example:
Lindsay: I think I want to do a job that helps people.
Andy: Doesn’t every job help people?
Me: Not executioner.
This post is about a case involving directional drilling consultants. And while that sounds like the job title of a scene director in the porn industry, it’s actually a job involving subterranean oil and gas exploration. Directional drilling consultants (DDs) advise drilling companies how to aim their directional drills when drilling a well that starts down a vertical path, then switches to horizontal. This allows the company to drill discretely in areas away from home. Like Josh Duggar.
