From Rig Hands to consultants, workers steal diesel fuel daily. This is a 'crime of opportunity' that has been going on for decades. Midland, TX has had such a rise that it made the Newswest 9 news. http://www.newswest9.com/story/18519568/oil-workers-stealing-red-diesel-from-rigs-illegally-filling-up-personal-vehicles
How much does this cost each oil & gas rig? It takes 35 gallons to fill up a typical truck. The average price of diesel fuel is $4. That means to fill up that tank costs $140. Lets assume only a single theft occurs per day and that is a loss of $51,100 per year! You own 10 rigs? You could be losing $511,000 per year!
It's great to trust your employees, but remember the advice "Trust, but verify."
Security cameras can act as both a deterrent and an effective way to catch criminals if theft ever occurs.
