U do not have a clue what you are talking about....TID  has  nothing to do with North America and it is not related to any of the companies you talk about. this is why TID is a primary acquisition target for any driller who wants to expand in hot and highly promising drilling areas with several drilling high impact  projects in 2013.

TID operates in South America and Africa where the drilling activity is warming up as it is summer there.

Big projects are on the way in both places and some big discoveries in Brazil and Colombia lately....
