When the largest oil company in the province, and typically the most active driller in the country, shuts down most of its rigs, it has a substantial impact on the active drilling rig count. That’s exactly what happened in November, as Crescent Point Energy pulled in its horns and dropped its rig numbers from around a dozen to just four rigs in the province, two in southeast Saskatchewan, and two in west-central Saskatchewan.
A Facebook post got me thinking. The top part noted that in the 1960s, people were worried about the government wiretapping their phones. The lower part shows a woman speaking to her Amazon Alexa, a wiretap she purposely put in her home, asking it for pancake recipes. My wife pointed out that my phone informed me our vehicle was parked. I know, I told her. It also tells me when you park at work, too. And when I leave the house, it says how long it will take me to get to the office.
t may have been prescient that Whitecap Resources Inc. CEO Grant Fagerheim was inducted into the Saskatchewan Oilpatch Hall of Fame at the 2017 Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show in Weyburn. He’s liable to be spending a lot more time in Weyburn now, as Whitecap announced on Nov. 13 it had bought the Weyburn Unit from Cenovus Energy Inc. for $940 million cash. Whitecap plans on resuming drilling and expanding the operation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
