It is that time of the year where we are deep into the process to complete our Plans for 2019.
I always enjoy this period of the year, as I start to think carefully thru the numbers, goals to set ourselves, how to raise the bar for the company and - of course- the markets: what new challenges will they pose, competitors and so on, are we finally coming into the next oil industry boom cycle?
I think the entire industry worldwide is now in need for the oil industry to boom again for a lengthy period of sustained development, investment and growth.
So far things are looking good for us going into 2019.
