Oil Platform Jobs

There is a huge demand for oil around the world as every country is trying to cope with energy crisis which is looming large on the horizon. This has given a boost to the oil industry and there is an increase in investments and an effort is being made to find new oil reserves across the world. These reserves are mainly found in the seas and oceans of the world and this has created a lot of vacancies in oil platform jobs. An oil platform is the offshore rig which is set up to excavate the crude oil from underneath the ocean floor.

There are many new projects which are involved in setting up rigs at the new oil sites which are being discovered. Many, oil platform job opportunities are coming up in North America and there is a large project which is starting in the North Sea. The companies who have invested in these projects are looking for personnel who will work on these oil platforms.

Oil platform jobs command a good salary and on an average a new recruit can expect to earn around $3000 monthly. Oil platform jobs are not easy, and they require a good physique and a tough mind set. The worker will be subject to some of the worst weather and storms hitting the oil platform on which he is working. As the platform is in the middle of the ocean he will have to be on the rig for at least 15 to 20 days at a stretch. The shifts are long of up to 12 hours and the recruits are also expected to do overtime. But considering the salary which is being given, oil platform jobs are definitely worth applying.

Oil platform jobs involve working on the rig for 3 weeks at a stretch and then getting a certain period as holiday when you can return to land. This cost of transportation from the rig to land and back is borne by the company for whom you work. Also when you working on the rig, your accommodation and food is free. On top of all this many companies will also provide a good medical insurance for its employees. But one must remember that oil platform jobs are very challenging and are to be taken up only if one feels that they can handle the hard working conditions and isolation. If one is fit for this challenge than oil platform jobs can be very rewarding which will provide financial security.
