A west Texas "roughneck" - an oil drilling rig laborer - works on an oil drilling rig in the oil fields of the Permian Basin of west Texas. Workers are preparing the hole for fracking. The current oil boom in the Permian Basin is largely due to this new hydraulic drilling technology and the high price of oil.
