Assistant Driller

Today's oil and gas industry is always in the midst of fluctuation because of having the oil shipped rather than drilling in closer proximity. There is still a wide range of opportunities and the individual will need to devote time to search. Like many employees in the airline industry the gas and oil industry is today as it was in the past a worldwide industry.

This in itself will offer many opportunities to a multitude of individuals all around the world. A few of the major opportunities that remain available to those who qualify are the following.

1. Professional drillers

2. Professional electricians

3. Professional mechanics

4. Professional medics

5. Professional mud engineers

6. Professional offshore installation managers

7. Professional radio operators

8. Professional welders

The opportunities and the possibilities for employment are absolutely endless, but it does begin with a full education and the possible master's degree in engineering. The higher up the ladder an individual is prepared to sacrifice, the better employment opportunities blossom. The range of employment also has many opportunities heavily involved with the many stages of extracting oil and gas from various reservoirs.

Assistant drillers and electricians are an important asset to the gas and oil industry, as without them the work will come to a standstill. The medics and the industry mechanics are important because the medics are there for the individuals who sustain injuries. The mechanics are there to get the equipment back on line as quickly as possible. Think of it as a team and each member of the team no matter at what level is of vital interest to the company as a whole.

The assistant drillers or roughnecks are a member of the oil drilling team. These individuals perform general labor duties by operating equipment to assist in the actual drilling and servicing. Some of the tasks they may perform are the following.

1. Setting up, dismantling, and transporting equipment

2. Maintenance and clean up of the drilling area

3. Handle, sort and move drill tools, pipes, cement and other materials

4. Operates sections of pipe, drill stem during drilling and removal

5. In charge of transporting various materials and necessary equipment

This also allows the assistant driller or roughneck to shine and expose all things learned to the team of individuals. It is an opportunity for the roughneck to excel and move up the ladder and have a chance to be one of the big boys.
