What sparked your interest the most in the previous week was an article containing an infographic that details how oil prices affect everything.

A research was carried out to investigate how the price of oil has had a huge effect on the global economy and how it impacts our lives in general.

You will find that the results uncovered some fascinating facts in the event of oil price fluctuation.

Our second most read story of the week was about a Houston-based drilling contractor, Diamond Offshore, bracing for termination of six rig contracts as its customers are looking to cut costs in a depressed market stemming from low oil prices.

Next article on our list was not a happy one as Archer, a supplier of drilling and well services, decided to let go 1000 workers.
