Who called me about working offshore?

Someone called early in the week who rides a Buel and I'd asked him to stop by on Friday. Things have changed and I need for him to contact me again

Offshore work pays very well and you have the chance to make more.
Manual labor to start.
Hot in the Summer
Cold in the Winter
Usually good cooks to make meals round the clock
BR hands make your room, bed, wash your clothes etc...

Domestic work is 14 days on the rig 14 days at home rotation

I used to work on a drillship, which was then the Sonat Discoverer 534. As Swift E stated its very manual. Started as a painter, then roustabout, and ended my offshore "career" as a roughneck/floorhand. You work 12 hour days in any weather. Its pretty miserable work. If you work hard and are half-way intelligent you can move up.
Times are good now but keep in mind they do go bad. When I was out there times were bad. Pay was , and I had to pay my own way to NOLA every two weeks. From N.O. they would bus us down to Port Fourchon, Venice, etc.
I also didn't get paid when I was off the two weeks either. So if you want to want to work, sleep, work, sleep, then that's the job for you.

Right, It's all work on the rig.
But when you're off for 2 weeks you don't have to answer to anyone.
My company provides travel pay to cover your travel expenses.
Also on your off time there is a limit to the things you can do.
Watch TV
Play cards
Fish (some rigs don't allow this)
Work out
etc...

It's not for everyone but for those willing to work and willing to move up. It is a great job.

offshore work is stable right now, and will be for some time to come IMO. The work hard, dangerous, and downright disgusting given the weather conditions at times, but it's all worth while when you are at home for two weeks. BTW, Diamond is one of the best drilling contractors to work for, so get in while you fit in people. Keep in mind, it takes a mature, hard working, dedicated man to do this job, so it will either make you or break you. Work Safe!!!
