Price increase!

Hi greedy bulb, you sent me an email.mail informing me that prices were increasing due to wholesale costs and Norwegian shutdowns over running! Obviously you know which rigs are over running and by how much don’t you?So which one or ones are they? SnorreA? StatfjordA or B,Gullfacs A or B?Frigg field?Heimdal?Petrojarl?Sleipner?Ekofisk?Osberg?Troll?Edda?Albuskjella?Tor?Edda?Valhalla?Hod!!!Shall I keep going bulb?Do you really believe that one platform over running can cause such an increase in price? No !!! The shutdowns are meticulously planned a year ahead and if they over run the usual two weeks then they pay a penalty usually about £100,000 per day!So it’s in their interest to get things finished! I know as I’ve worked on loads of shutdowns over the years and they don’t shut them all down at once either!!! So then bulb when will you stop trying to bullshit the customer into lies about Norwegian platforms? You are putting up your prices because you CAN and it’s a cartel!!! Oh! Guess what? I’m off! So Hayden and amit can now look in the mirror and say" mirror mirror on the wall the Norwegian rig was our downfall!" Tarrar suckers!

I think you have posted a number of similar rants on the same topic over the last three days or so. In these situations with your concern about the price increase isn’t it just as easy to have the one rant and then make a rational choice to switch to another supplier if the grass is greener on the other side?

Alanr,never let companies have a clean run to take your hard earned cash particularly when bullshit is involved! The idea of the so called rant is to let people know that they are being hoodwinked and get them to leave an overloaded ship before it sinks! Get my drift Alanr? Oh,you must be employed by bulb and are embarrassed by my knowledge of all things offshore! Or you are just plain happy to go along with price rises!!!

Although I post a lot on this forum my only involvement with Bulb is as a customer. My limited specialism doesn’t extend to gas fields and gas production. I joined Bulb with eyes wide open and should the need arise I will do the same if I need to switch to another supplier and don’t really need anyone to advise the appropriate course of action, others perhaps may take on board your intervention.

Same here ,I don’t need any advice about having a rant a few times and then being “advised” by you to just do it once and then move if the grass is greener!

@John2152, I don’t quite get your rampant negativity towards Bulb based on this price rise, but if you just wanted a rant I have to agree with @Allanr, one really would have sufficied.

Out of interest, where are you off to? I’m sure you’re aware that everyone has been putting their prices up!

Not all of us are here just for low prices though. The Bulb homepage even happily admits they’re not the cheapest, in an easy to read graph.

Hi John2152. Take a look at this graph.

Really not Bulbs fault.

Hi everybody,not annoyed at bulb really just the rip off system in this country!Bulb are a small cog in a big engine and if everybody complained then the government would hopefully do something about the prices as they are unsustainable! Apologies to everyone if I’ve offended you but it does annoy me with this rip off prices!

@John2152,

John2152 is off to Enstroga so he said in another post, they have good 1* reviews on Trustpilot.

I don’t know if everyone received the same email but mine said prices would be going up in november. Surely a greedy “cartel” would instantly put their prices up and tell you if you didn’t like it you can switch but at a cost. I think 60 days notice is ample time for anyone to make an informed decision as an adult about what steps they want to take.
Your knowledge of Norwegian oil rigs is outstanding but you could just be quoting the Ikea catalogue for all I know.

Your views about the energy industry as a whole are really important. If there are changes that you think need to be made then this is the place to let us know about them :slight_smile: We want to make energy simpler, cheaper and greener and suppliers can be the leaders of this change!
