    Its hard knowing everything.



    Drilling Rig hands make 15-25/hr most of the time you work week on week off and work 12hr days. Soe companies you just work a shift. You use to work 12-18hr days but saftey rules kinda put a stop to that.

    The hours is mostly a 12 hour shift. I have a friend whose a MWD Engineer he doesn't do any hard labor (that's basically the drillers job).In most cases he just basically stay in the oil rig trailer and do some paperwork. He makes about 100K a year.


    Plus you get gas mileage reimbursement and they pay for your hotel (or provide you, your own trailer). On top of that good benefits and bonus.
    i live out here in california. i'm thinking about going out there to work on the oil rigs. i took a twenty month welding course that was N.C.C.E.R.. i'am also cirtified in smaw,gtaw,fluxcore,and gmaw. i got all structial *****. i've done some pipe welding. how much would i start off at an hour? what are the main concerns with oil rig work out there?

    Job on oil rigs

    Hi Guys I am from BG, 35 yrs old and need a job. No experience in rigs or anything but from childhood had an ambition to be in this field. So I don know for which position I should apply first in this field as I am a newbie. So need some guidance guys from you all. Really would appreciate it, because I read some articles about the oil rig jobs like one in joboilrig.com but I don't get it very well. What about the Roughnecks? Thanks in advance.

    Here in the North Sea, you can make from £25 - £5000 per day.

    It can get crazy with money from what i've seen.

    Work is tough though. Out at sea (9/10 rough sea's), highly paid have huge responsibility, 12hrs+ shifts, for upto a month at a time. Work, eat, sleep, repeat the whole time.
    Time off can be limited too, unless your lucky and get fixed rotations.

    Would be a good idea to forget about your life for afew years, work hard, make the money, spend minimal amounts, change job onshore and be minted.

    agree 100%...they definitely earn what they get paid with the factors involved with that job.

    I only only kind of person I could see doing this type of job is a single guy. I probably would have been up for doing it in my early 20's for a couple years if I knew about it.

    Not really, unless you have an engineering degree you'll pretty much be starting at the same level as everyone else. Even with the engineering degree there is plenty of politics and hierarchy.
    If you're scared go to church. Safety is #1 out on the rig (offshore) and we do not fuck around when it comes to that.

    Up here in the north (WY, MT, ND) starting out you should be looking at 26-28 an hour if your smart and a hard worker in 3-5 years you can be a driller makeing 35-45 an hour and there bonuses for production and safty. Its 12 hours a day 7 or 14 days on and the sam amount off for the most part. The industry has really cleaned up in the 13 years I have been roughnecking drugs and unsafe working environments are becoming the way of the past. You do a real good job and being a good worker and in 4-8 years you can be a directional driller. I my self habe been a directional drill for bout 3 years and I charge $1400 A DAY! but I am also self employed so I pay a LOT in taxes. Just for the record I worked 322 days last year. The williston basin currently has 18000 thats right eighteen thousand job openings but NOWHERE to live so a lot of people fly back and fourth to work. On the other hand it can and will be a rough job at times and a very small percentage of people that try out for the oil field ever make it more then 6 months. I will say that as the culture has changed in the last few years you are now more likely to be working with a body builder on gear then a strung out meth junkie like you used to . Keep in mind most people up here now make over 100k a year so the level of professionalism has greatly increased, well as much as you can expect out of a bunch of ex-cons and ex-military and ex- farm boys as that seems to be our most common back grounds.

    I know this is an old thread, but it seems like there is a lot of different information. Almost everybody I know outside of Alberta (BC especially, where I'm from) moves to Alberta to get work on the rigs. The oil industry here (Canada) is huge. You start at anywhere from $27 to $29 CAD ($27.10-$29.11 USD as of today) as a leasehand. Then you move up to roughneck. Then derrick hand, then motorman. I'm unsure of what you go to after that, but I know eventually you can work your way to push or "tool push". I think motorman makes about $45/h, and push is around $1000-$1500/day (maybe salary, I'm unsure). You need to take a course of a couple months to work motor. And push requires some schooling as well. Aside from that, they basically hire anyone smart enough to pick up a hammer and smack their thumb with it. Three times, without learning. The weather is probably the only real drawback. The reason being, is that the ground needs to be frozen in order for the machines/rig to not sink in the dirt. The people talking about muddy work obviously work in climates that don't get as cold. Or on service rigs... Which is different than "rigging". The temperature can be anywhere from -30 to -50 celsius (-40 is the exact same in both celsius and Fahrenheit, for you Americans who don't know both systems). You do work 12 hour days. 21 on, 7 off usually. Provincial law states that overtime is anything after 44 hours a week (or 8-10 hours daily, depending on the company) at time and a half. "Spring break up" is when the ground starts thawing and no more work can be done. Sometimes my friends will be off for 9 months to a year during this time. Sometimes it's only a month until they're called back. During the summer the ground hardens again though. So you can work for those few months as well. There's an extremely high employee turn-over rate. So again, I'm confused as to why people would be saying you couldn't get a job. Regardless of how the economy is/was.

    The work is not for everybody. Yes, it's good money. But the weather that you work in is extremely cold (at least here). Water freezes mid-air and your snot freezes in your nose when you breathe. Double-wrapping of clothing, and a mask for your face isn't required, but will sure help. As for drugs, they're taken recreationally and off site. It's quite frequent, but doesn't really affect work. Drug screening is done before you start and randomly after that. Also, you need your First Aid and H2S tickets before you are considered for a job. Hope this clears anything up. I'd say 1/20 people here (or more) go up to the rigs after high school. This information isn't first hand (I haven't done it), but reliable.

    The hours is mostly a 12 hour shift. I have a friend whose a MWD Engineer he doesn't do any hard labor (that's basically the drillers job).In most cases he just basically stay in the oil rig trailer and do some paperwork. He makes about 100K a year.


    Plus you get gas mileage reimbursement and they pay for your hotel (or provide you, your own trailer). On top of that good benefits and bonus.
    This post is so full of misinformation.

    You do have a set schedule unless you are.just covering shifts. 2 weeks on one week off.. three crews (two crews on one on their week off)

    the only way you work more then two weeks is if you are covering shifts.. LOL @ 6 months straight..

    LOL @ the Driller doing manual labour.. they just sit in the dog house most of the night..

    Most don't pay travel and you either get a living out allowance or put you in a camp..

    I worked on a drilling rig for a while. Was taking home around $9k a month.
