From 'Scotty' Location Stranraer

its a very good industry to get into and there is still a chance to progress just like you say. i work 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off, and earn the same as mentioned on your website, dont do no overtime, but have the option of working in my leave, if i wer to work 4 weeks of every leave i got, my wage would probably be in excess of 70k. there will always be a job for me on the ocean, and because i'm experienced, doubt i'll ever be unemployed again.

Comments from Rig'ers can be posted to us here:

The Benefits
Opportunities for advancement are excellent. It is not uncommon for a person starting at the bottom with no previous oil field experience to be making  £65 - £75,000 a year, and that is for working only six months out of the year, usually by 2 weeks onboard and 2 weeks off.  

The majority of entry level rig jobs do not require a formal education as the employer is more interested in your ability to do your job well. Some jobs require at least a secondary level school education. Other positions, as they get more complex, will naturally require higher levels of education. 

Health Requirements
The first and foremost requirement for working offshore is that you are
in sound physical condition.

Most onshore experience is transferable, for example if you have heavy labouring experience, on say a construction site, then that could stand you in good stead as a rig roustabout or roughneck. If you have any mechanic skills that will be valuable too, because mechanics, fitters, and welders are currently in great demand offshore. 

Ex-Forces People . . .  
have a great opportunity to use their skills on return to civilian life - for example: Motor Transport Fitters, Diesel Mechanics, Engine Room Mechs, etc, etc. are always needed offshore.

More about Entry Level Oil Rig Jobs  
There are always offshore oil rig catering jobs and cleaning jobs too, so the opportunities are there to be had - if it were not so, then who do you think would crew the rigs? If others can land a Rig Job - then so can YOU.

Offshore Opportunities on Oil Rigs  
Once you get onboard and have gained some work experience you will have the opportunity to advance into many different areas involved in all phases of the industry. 

How far you want to go is up to you - the Oil Companies recognise ambition and will pay you while attending courses. From the writer's personal experience that is true of Exxon Mobil, Esso and BP, and probably all the other well-known Oil Companies too. They will PAY YOU to advance.

Showing a keen interest in the job will play a very important part in your getting and keeping a job on offshore oil rigs.

ALSO INCLUDED  Women on RIGS. You will read TRUE LIFE accounts from Women who serve on the rigs in the North Sea . . . (it may surprise you). This account was featured in The Guardian Newspaper as follows:
