The new year has brought new challenges for the oil industry. While consumers may enjoy lower prices at the pump, experts still worry about the long-term impact of cheap oil on the global workforce.

Abundant oil supplies from U.S. shale producers may have upset global markets in recent months, but one resource may present even more of a challenge to the international community in 2015—clean water. Demand has clearly outstripped supply in some of the world’s most arid regions.

Since its Nov. 27 meeting, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has witnessed even more turbulence in the oil market. Prices have dipped as low as little more than $60 per barrel.

Decreasing oil prices have put many companies and countries on edge this month, especially among the members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

Last year, “Reduce Thrust and Extend Bearing Life” (Pumps & Systems, December 2013) discussed the benefits and some potential pitfalls of adjusting the axial clearance of American National Standards Ins

For those of you old enough to remember Lawrence Welk, you’ll notice that the title of this brief column is the final quote from his show’s closing song. I am still a loyal fan of his reruns today.
