The drilling day's activity for the nine month period ended September 30, 2009 was reported by the Nickle's Energy Group to be 53 percent lower than the same time period in 2008. In response to the decline in activity, many oil and gas companies have cancelled long-term contracts with service and supply firms including the Company. The slowdown in the oil and gas industry is now being felt in the whole North American market.

According to Derek Begin, President of Global Energy, "The 3rd quarter was difficult for the service industry and Global Energy. The 4th quarter has seen a marked increase in utilization, with our operations now being centralized in our Calgary facility, margins and utilizations are improving."
