Rig CallOut Petitions Global Timezone Committee to Add a 13th Hour

APRIL 1, 2019


HOUSTON, TX – Rig CallOut announced today they received over 25,000 signatures and filed an official petition with the office of the Global Timezone Committee, and to add a 13th hour to the standard world clock in order to allow more to get done in the oilfield.

“There are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done in the oilfield. At Rig CallOut we feel strongly that adding a 13th hour to the clock will help everyone get more done," began Ryan Hunt, Founder and CEO of Rig CallOut. 

"The repercussions will be immeasurable for all aspects of business, reaching far beyond the oilfield,” said Rig CallOut Founder, Ryan Hunt. “As everyone knows, ‘minutes are millions’ in the oilfield, if we’re successfully able to add an additional hour to the clock, that will provide two extra hours per day; which will help increase production and profits. Additionally, this creates an opportunity to include two extra hours in day rates – as rigs charge per day/per foot to drill,” continued Hunt.


Many say this is not only infeasible and unlikely, but 100% impossible. Rig CallOut says nothing is impossible, and this is just one more way the company is planning to help the oilfield get more done.


“Whether or not our petition goes through, we’re working daily to improve profitability and timelines in the oilfield. For example, our new technology gives everyone in the oilfield supply chain complete visibility as to a shipment’s location and ETA, allowing workers in the oilfield to plan deliveries down to the minute and eliminate costly Non-Productive Time (NPT),” claims Hunt.


Rig CallOut’s petition is groundbreaking, just like their intuitive cloud based communication platform.

The petition to the Global Timezone Committee is obviously an April Fool’s Day Joke,” laughs Rig CallOut CEO, Ryan Hunt. He continues, “but our commitment to improving time management and supply chain communication in the oilfield is very real. We hope everyone enjoys this humorous break to their day, and takes a minute to see the real way we are improving the oilfield supply chain,” states Hunt.

Rig CallOut is a first of its kind IoSC technology using advanced GPS and a robust communications platform to connect the entire supply chain within the Oil & Gas Industry. The company is bringing visibility to the industry unlike anything ever experienced before.
