Have you ever had customer service so good it actually ended up saving you money? Instead of working with a company that always focuses on selling you something, isn't it nice to work with one who you consider a partner?

At LTR , customer service is so much more than just being responsive and polite. Those are key attributes, and may have cut it in prior business settings, but in today’s oil and gas industry, with price, product, and performance being major drivers of business/vendor partnerships, stellar customer service can usually tip the scales in favor who of those who perform it best.

Read about how LTR's outstanding customer service has been a benefit to both their own business but also to the ones it serves.

While Mark Walhberg will probably be one of the reasons people go to see "Deepwater Horizon," anyone who has diligently followed the events that have unfolded after the 2010 disaster will know there's a very human side of the tragedy.

Read about Mark Williams, who had this to say about the film, in this article:
"My 11 brothers that got killed were immediately forgotten," Williams said, speaking from his Sulphur Springs, Texas, home. "We understand the oil. It's bad, yes. The birds are dying and the shrimp and the crabs and all that stuff. But those aren't brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, sons, daughters. Shrimp can come back. People, you can't bring those guys back."

Peter Berg's "Deepwater Horizon," which opens in theaters Friday, puts the spotlight of a big-budget disaster movie on the human toll of a real-life tragedy. Mark Wahlberg stars as Williams, a central figure in an earlier "60 Minutes" segment that focused on the Deepwater Horizon workers.
