Unlike the majority of the oilfield industry, Lafayette-based Green Field Energy Services ran into some rough times and it looks as if the company has run out of time. Green field filed for chapter 11 after defaulting on an $80 million loan from Shell and a $250 million loan from Wilmington Trust. Layoffs are surely on the horizon for some of the 355 employees but it is unclear how many will be let go. Meanwhile, Port Fourchon in Louisiana, fresh off of finishing one expansion is looking for a second expansion that would bring in an additional 300 - 350 workers not to mention the extra oilfield service work that will be handled at the facility upon completion.
