It was looking like I was going to be doing a week of night work in Santa Clara next week.
The site is an active station with a car wash, and the owner was refusing to let us work there during the day claiming it would be too much of a disruption of his business. So he said we could work there at night.
The drillers were willing to do the work, but the cost was almost double standard rate.
Our Exxon project manager nixed the plan today, saying it would be too expensive.
So now we have to tel the regulator what's going on, and we'll see what the next step is.
Will the station owner be forced to let us work during the day? Will Exxon be forced to pay for the night work?
