I have worked in the oil patch since 1980 "yes I went thru the first big oil bust" and here we go again. Over the last 29 yrs I've worked on work over rigs, drilling rigs, roustabout, welder and am now a pumper. I taught myself how to program computers in the mid 1990s. This last year 2009 I felt the time was right to create an oilfield community so we can bring over 1,000,000 oilfield workers together. Most of the programming is done in ACCESS databases example - Oilfield maps, oilfield directory, supply store search, and I will be adding a oilfield events database soon.

Many people wonder why I use a Jackalope for my image. I am in Douglas, Wyoming home of the Jackalope. Lappin my last name means rabbit in French and pumper jack is a rabbit. I named him Pumper Jack because he is a pumper and a Jack Rabbit / Jackalope . A pumping unit is also known as a pump jack. Hence the name Pumper Jack.

Working as a pumper in Wyoming Scott Lappin couldn't keep his depleted oil wells from burning out their tubing head packing. After trying several products on the market with no success and several oil spills later he knew he had a problem to solve.
Realizing that when the wells pumped off dry rubber against metal created a great amount of friction and heat . This loss of lubrication resulted in burning out the packing. The answer had to be reducing the rubber to metal contact. A unique Teflon impregnated rope packing was the solution. It had self lubricating ability, heat resistance, and a very tough nylon fiber. Placing rope packing at the point of contact was critical.
Merging uniquely designed rubber cones & rings with Teflon impregnated rope packing seamed like a logical answer.
After numerous attempts to marry the two products a unique system was achieved resulting in high quality consistency and performance. LappinTech Premium Stuffing Box Packing solves the problem, and our company was developed to distribute this amazing product to all the pumpers and operators across the country.
