General Information on ¨How to get an Oil Rig Job Now¨

As global demand for oil grows, the oil rig industry is under increasing pressure to expand exploration and drilling operations. Many oil companies are capitalizing on relaxed government restrictions and technological advances to maximize production. The new rigs they build require workers to man them. Jobs on oil rigs are physically demanding and work conditions are often dangerous, but oil rig workers earn good salaries, often gain promotions, and can work in locations throughout the world. If you want to learn how to work on an oil rig, follow these guidelines.

1. Assess your ability to work under challenging circumstances. Most oil rig jobs require hard labor under trying conditions. Entry-level workers, like roughnecks and roustabouts, can expect certain challenges.

2. Pursue applicable training and certification. While entry-level jobs on oil rigs are plentiful and technically don't require any experience, few companies will hire a "green hand" to work on their billion-dollar platforms. In general, oil rig workers only need to be 18 or older, have a high school diploma and pass a pre-employment drug test. Successful applicants have usually pursued oil rig training independently or bring transferable skills to the job. All workers must meet certain minimum standards and certifications to work on an oil rig

• Current work visa: Most companies will arrange for a current work visa for people working outside their native country.

• Immunizations: Oil rig jobs are available in some of the world's most exotic locations, including the coasts of Africa and the waters of Southeast Asia. Workers from other regions often get jobs in these areas, but they must complete a full course of immunizations before they will be hired.

• Specialized training courses: Many trade schools and colleges offer classes on various facets of the oil industry, including oil rig work. Most classes blend coursework with hands-on, field experience. Companies often provide training for workers looking to advance their careers in specialized fields.

• Certification: All offshore workers are required to earn an Offshore Survival & Firefighting certificate. Specialized workers, like electricians, scaffolders and welders, must hold a state-issued license or certificate in order to work on a rig.

3. Decide what oil rig job is best for you. An oil rig is a place where you really can work hard to get ahead. Most crane operators, shift supervisors and other skilled workers started out in entry-level positions. They set themselves apart by pursuing advanced oil rig training and accepting additional assignments. Inexperienced workers can begin their careers in any one of several oil rig jobs

• Roughneck: Roughnecks are general laborers who usually work on the rig deck. They move equipment and supplies, and also are responsible for cleaning equipment and work areas.

• Roustabout: These workers are involved in drilling operations. They often move sections of drill pipe and clean spill. Roustabouts aspire to one day become the tool pusher, the senior supervisor on a rig.

• Helper: Helpers assist skilled personnel, serving as apprentices for rig electricians, lead welders and heavy-equipment operators.

• Painter: Offshore oil rigs, in particular, must be painted constantly to protect the structure from the corrosive effects of saltwater. This is hazardous duty, as painters often must be suspended in harnesses to reach remote areas of the platform.

• Motorman: Motormen maintain and repair all rig machinery, including generators and deck equipment.

• Deckhand: Deckhands build tow lines to secure barges and boats to the structure, facilitating loading and offloading of cargo.

• Steward: Housekeeping needs, including laundry service and janitorial duties, must be met to ensure the smooth operation of an oil rig.

• Assistant chef: Galley hands, including assistant chefs, work around the clock to prepare meals for all shifts. This is a job where mainstream experience is directly transferable to duties on the rig.
