Forum For Drilling Rig Jobs by Nobody: 11:28am On Apr 23, 2015
I've observed that rig workers are set of employee sourced and recruited secretly. Leaving many intending and interested seekers with less information on how to go about getting one.
Drilling Jobs are one of the most challenging jobs that require strength and experience in addition to trainings depending on the kind position such as:
1. Roustabout
2. Floor hand
3. Derick
4. Mud men
5. Electrician/Chief Electrician
6. Mechanic/Chief Mechanic
7. Medic
8. Safety officer
9. Clerk
10. Drillers/Assistant Driller
11. Tool pusher

Most times third party contractors are involved in sourcing for these workers and further i details shows that this agents have no address and point were applications could be submitted, restricting selections to who you know in the industry.
With the changes in the hydrocarbon industries and government power, new Rigs are expected to commence jobs soon, hence I created this post to initiate posting of these jobs here to help interested applicants get their desired job.

*** Note*** Offshore and Onshore jobs are welcomed.

Very good idea but most likely will be sabotage because this sector is being ruled by bigotries who even sell opportunities to their subscribers

Re: Forum For Drilling Rig Jobs by Nobody: 9:44am On Apr 24, 2015
From my own experience, its a man know man business now, that's why I created this forum.
Been in the system now I will like to share my experiences on how i got in.
1.First get to know any top shot in the drilling firm which to me I consider the easiest.
2. Go to any of the recruitment agencies, apply as a roustabout. If you are lucky they might pic when jobs come up. I must make you understand that this option is a bit difficult but works at times
3. Sponsor yourself to trainings with amounts ranging from 150k to 600k for the required certifications and then apply online.

...more to come as I'm going in now to continue my shift

Thank you for this post. For months now i have been trying to search the internet for ROUSTABOUT but i don't see adverts. Their adverts are QUITE RARE on the internet. It is more like they don't advertise these jobs.

I am a fresh graduate geologist with no experience and i am looking for a FREE/UNPAID intern position to gain hands on experience.

I believe this post would be very useful. PLEASE ANYBODY WITH A LINK CAN GET ME THROUGH

Op Thanks again for this post.

Roustabout are guys dat do manual labour jobs on a rig and the requirement is wassce or Neco. A DEGREE holder shouldn't be talking about roustabout job because you under utilizing ur potential? Instead aim for rig engineer or field technician

its easier to get in as a roustabout, then move to the rightful position for you,
it will be difficult to get tech or an engineer position from outside when there are people already inside aiming for it.
