Fort Mcmurray


Does anyone know the going rate to hang and tape in fort Mcmurray?
I know rent costs 3,500/month and a plate of breakfast is 15.00 and the average annual income is 90,000. I know drywall companies paying .40tape/.30hang there, and supplying accomodations, So what i'm really wanting to know is what they charge.

The rides over, oil is less than $ 50.00 a barrel, if it hasn't deflated the work there yet it will sooner than you can get there and get started.

Not nearly enough but roughly $5.9375 Sq. Ft. or $285.00 (U.S. Dollar) per 4by12 sheet. You won't make enough per square foot so make sure you charge extra for extra's...

From what I have heard, this is due to an increase in drilling royalty fees. Sounds like they are trying to prove a point to the government. I think you guys should see steady work up there, oil prices will go back up one day. Now is a good time for an oil company to invest in infrastructure. A lot of companies are dying for work, and will work at cut throat rates.

..HAHA, 285 a sheet, that'd be great, I could come to work every morning in a ferrari, or private helicopter... That could be the new visa commercial, If life were like that you wouldn't need visa.

I know oil land is slow, but thats good cause now there are actually a few open vacancies for apartments, compared to basically a bidding war a couple years ago. I see it as an open window to get in and wait, cause Oil prices will only go up.
