Enjoyed the lifestyles of an even time roster with regards to family life. Being able to participate in and make changes at work and at home having the timeframe to follow the changes through.

A typical day on a rig involved preparing and maintaining equipment for the next part of the drilling process.

I learned the importance of being organised, managing my time, along with every aspect of the drilling process.


Management was very approachable and dealt with conflicts and issues promptly.


The hardest part of this job was without a doubt being away from home for long periods of time.


I enjoyed the challenge of being successful in a notoriously tough industry, which was unlike any job I had had before.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Long 13/14 hour days

12+ hour days sometimes in 40+ degree heat. You need to learn people skills working with so many people. Being a FIFO job and being able to have 2-3 weeks off with the family after being away for that amount of time is definitely something I enjoyed.
Pros
Time off after working away
Cons
Working away from the family

Maintenance support for field technicians, Preventative Maintenance in the Oil Drilling business is hard to sell as the Canadian parent companies have a use and rebuild program over 4 months drilling season of working 8 months of overhaul season. In Australia where there is no overhaul season the desire to drill 12 months is over-riding and clashes with Preventative Maintenance programs.
Working with the field teams and building a culture of customer service was enjoyable.

We work 21 days on, 21 days off, but still get equal pay fortnightly weather on or off hitch. This is the best thing about this job, equal time rosters hard to beat.
Prestart meeting, find out any priority jobs or urgent work, whats happening with rig for the day, work around the drill crew schedule. Check computer for EAM maintenance work. Morning rig checks and walk around, speak to the driller about any problems.Fill out any permits required for work, working at heights etc. Advise crew of what work I am doing. Start priority and urgent jobs then scheduled maintenance jobs. Testing Items, Order Parts. Enter details of all completed jobs on EAM system, print off paper copies and file in Work Order binder. Research on line for manuals or product information. Assist mechanic on generator services, or hydraulic problems. My co workers are all well trained professional people good at what they do and good to work with and good team spirit. Management I don't get to see much of that, we have a rig manager who runs the show, all on site answer to him and the company man. We all have a good working relationship with our senior crew members and HSE on site rep. It's more about doing a safe job and looking out for your mates than busting your gut going flat out. Hardest part of the job is finding the faulty part or which valve control is not working correctly from the PLC or herschman plug etc. Everything on the rig is compact and squeezed into limited space so sometimes it means dismantling several things first to get at what you need to. This all comes with plant knowledge over
