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.
