hello, get familiar with the industry standards. It's neglect in the Nigerian industry/keyplayers that make people go to swamp neglecting those training. All locations give induction, that's not special. You can't visit a swamp location owned by an IOC without BOSIET... all from experience. BOSIET is not passbook. its reciept is an ID card. FYI, choppers do land on some swamp location. Besides, it's only a bonus and never a bad idea to have one. Thank you!
an ID card is a passbook........BOSIET for swamplocation ,am still marvelled, so IOC's dont keep industrial standards again too, you just safety induction, and do ur job and get out and move to d next facility....but wen you are going 1000 nautical miles offshore away from the nearest land and on a platform that is d deepest sea gorge in the ocean...now we are talking.

have you been to any IOC's swamp location without BOSIET before? Stop saying what you don't know and the silly argument. My initial post was based on the assumption his contract might be for an IOC. He explained and said it's for an indigenous firm. I just told you its the neglect by the indigenous players because most swamp locations are accessible by boat. No company will allow you fly chopper to a swamp location without BOSIET i.e chevron's okan, shell's belema and some I can't remember

God bless you my broda....and in most companies it is after your probationary period of say one year.
Re: Offshore Oil Worker,lets Meet Here by Nobody: 9:58am On Jul 13, 2017
Knowledge and information is key. It's embarassing coming to a public forum to say what you are not sure of. I never said the company you work for won't do the bosiet or that one have to do it themselves although I have seen individuals that do bosiet without having a job yet. For the struggling local companies they find it expensive, it will be a bonus.
Oga blackbriar, you do your Bosiet most times immediately after resumption. I had my Bosiet second week after resumption. Stop saying what you don't know or aren't sure of. Probabtion is 3 to 6 months. Any company that puts you on Probabtion one year will sack you before the year is over.

oga sir, what is obtainable in your very good nigerian company is not what is obtainable in all nigerian company.

Thanks.

refer to your post again, you will see your assumptions doesn't go. You said one remains under probation for a year without the training in question... so, I ask which company be it Nigerian or foreign would recruit a "Field Engineer" and keep him in the office for a year without field visits.... you may say land, how about offshore. Get familiar with what's obtainable in the industry as whole and not what you think it is. Except the local players that have not got strength and expertise for offshore activities, you'd have your Bosiet done be it good or bad company as a field engineer. It's part of the onboarding costs. Do you have experience you are sharing from or just your own random thought. If it is a random thought, I have put a lot of things for you to learn up there. If It's from experience, sorry about the experience but ideally, that's not the case with most people in the industry. Thank you!

Rope access level 1 is about 280k at JC International in PH. Most companies accept level 2 and above Sha. If I must advice you, don't just learn only rope access, combine it with other skills such as NDT or Sandblasting/painting. It will fly more. Most Nigerian go abroad to get their 1000 hours needed for them to progress to level 2, because there are rapid high construction jobs going on e.g Dubai.

Check out Russel smith's website online...they accept new comers and train to level 1, also ensure you are looking at other aspects such as inspection, painting, etc....

Not well enough, an entire plant most times will have only 1 or 2 IT guys on board.

top10nigeria:


32million means that plus tax I am doing about 40. Also, my low 32 has to do with age and not yrs. Age is not on my side. I am 32. I have a colleague on my level who is 46 and on my same level earning 47mil. Also wages grow in "triangles". As you grow, your salary growth stalls. It has nothing to do with Technician or Engineering. Eg. my overall boss who is like the Installation manager earns about 70Mil and he has not had a salary increment for 3yrs because he has maxed out and only gets 5% annual productivity bonus and asset optimization bonus which is undefined depending on how much cost he saves. He is 30yrs in service, now Senior management and looking to retire in 2yrs. So salary is defined by a combination of all kinds of things that HR experts put together. Your first 10yrs, your salary will grow faster but then remember that the company wants to make sure they control how much pension they will have to pay you after retirement, especially considering that Nigeria staff get automatic 11% increase every year due to Nigeria inflation, plus the company is paying a percentage of your salary into your RSA. So there is a conscious effort to manage how much pension you will be due as at the time of retirement which makes also affects your salary growth.
boss!!!how much does entry level engineers earn?
Re: Offshore Oil Worker,lets Meet Here by Nostradamus: 7:45am On Mar 22

I am not so concerned about his pay package (top10nigeria). Maybe his years of experience dates back to when he started working offshore at the age of 18 (probably started as a technician before gaining an engineering degree). I wouldn't even want to discuss remuneration here.

But I wonder if the 15 years experience is all offshore related. I can't see an engineer working offshore for 15 straight years (only technicians, operators, drilling supervisors, cook, etc. do that). It's almost impossible (for various reasons).

Most engineers in the oil industry don't like working offshore. They will rather work in the office and do a 9-5 job. It's quite hazardous working offshore. The life over there is regimented, and the living condition, though okay, are not as comfortable as a usual home. Many who work offshore are looking for office functions.

Most people who admire offshore jobs know very little about oil and gas industry. Once they get into industry, they get a better picture and prefer office roles.

Cheers..
how much does entry level engineers with the major production coys earn?

Offshore and Ocean Technology with Subsea Engineering (M.Sc) and Electrical/Electronics Engineering (B.Eng)...I also possess NEBOSH (Level 1).

I have been applying online since I finished my Masters programme in 2016.The few times I went to Companies to submit directly, I was not allowed in because I don't know any staff there. .
