Land now. Did 10 years GOM. Sometimes I wouldn't mind going back but no way I'm moving back down south.

You?

GOM. Deep water drill ship. But man there are days I sure miss land. I like the schedule we have deep water.

I did 4 years mid-continent. I won't do the cold again. Not for an extended period of time.

re: Starting salary for your career


I was working in Colorado but work is slow there now. I just finished up a freeze ring project on a gold mine in Nevada. I'm out working in California now.

I can't wait to get back home to Colorado. I've managed to avoid North Dakota so far. I hope to continue that.

We hope to pick up some horizontal work out in the Denver area this year. That would suit me just fine. Work out in California isn't bad though. All re-entry work. Last few wells have been sidetracks and magnetic ranging where we have to maintain <10 feet separation. We will be shifting to horizontals next.

At least it isn't boring.

Wyoming and North Dakota. Deep water is BORING. But the pay is good.

re: Starting salary for your career


You're like the 5th person who's told me they hate North Dakota. Precisely why I am avoiding it.

I did quite a lot of time on the Shell TLPs, TO Marianis and the Discovery Deep Seas. You definitely get more arse time. I didn't mind it so long as the rig had a nice gym.

Colorado is talking about making it mandatory all wells are horizontal wells. That would be good business for me. I want to go back working around my house in Western CO but I'm not going back and just doing build and hold or S wells. Way too boring.

ETA - I've worked in Wyoming and can confirm it blows. Literally.

What would my take home pay be at 39, 900?

How do I determine take home pay? Does that change depending on benefits?

Forgive my ignorance.. first salary job

Oh, and a whole lotta bull shite in this thread. Is this the OT's version of how long people ran the 40 in?

I'm actually surprised at what appears to be the amount of truth in this thread. There's only one or two posts that don't pass the smell test.

$39,900 minus insurance, 401K, or other deductions before taxes.

then take that amount and you will have roughly 20-25% taken out for taxes depending on your # dependents.

go to the IRS webpage and you should be able to get some answers.
