I don't mind traveling for 5 or so years out of college. Just wondering what my possibilities would be with experience in the field and wanting to stay in one area for awhile.
As a field landsman, you go where the work takes you. I've been in the business for 7 years and have never had to travel, but I have a feeling that's about to end, as I've been put on a curative project in W. Texas recently.
In the current economic climate, between the glut of experienced landsmen looking for work and the lack of new leasing/drilling going on (at least around NLA), prepare to be without work for a little while. Many companies aren't training new landsmen right now.
