Oh, and a whole lotta bull shite in this thread.

Is this the OT's version of how long people ran the 40 in?

Day rate of $650 working 28/28 I pay all insurance and benefits.



I would expect more pay than this offshore Africa but maybe not. Sperry tried hiring me a few years ago for Angola and the pay was almost exactly what I make on land in the U.S.. Day rate was around $1,000 per day. Only benefit was I would have been back working 28/28, which is the best schedule in the world.

I guess companies have scaled back hazard pay.

I found a few places to download it with a Google search but none were free.

Do you have any drilling experience? If you do, you can maybe make the jump after a year. If not, I would expect it to be 2-5 years.

No but do have experience in the field and a technical/engineering degree. Hoping that can speed up the jump.

re: Starting salary for your career
In 1997 I started with a $21,300 base salary plus commission, company car, and crappy benefits. That career ended up being about $85k per year if you were willing to trade your life for it.

Interviewing for a position tomorrow paying a salary of $20k per year, but realistic total package potential of about $90k for a 40 hour work week.

Having to work for living and being exploited sucks. I wish I could do photography full time, but I can't live on 40 a year...

re: Starting salary for your career
When I made the jump to MWD I had just finished my degree and also had 5 years of rig experience, including time on the brake.

I could have made the switch to DD after about 3 years if I had wanted. I ended up going overseas in a managerial role instead. When I came back from overseas I did some rotary steering engineering support for a short stint. Didn't care for the money, hated Houston and the job wasn't very challenging.
I made the jump to DD then and haven't regretted it once.

around $27000 with 2 wks vacation and full benefits back in 2000.

now I am on salary but it comes to $24.00 Hr as long as I don't pull any OT with 5 wks vacation and full benefits.

average around $60000 a yr with OT.

Not OT baller status but it pays the bills and I have a little play money for my hobbies and family.

Nigeria first, Angola second. Nigeria was awful. Angola wasn't so bad. Enjoyed the beaches. You just grow tired of the constant hassle involved with living in a third world country. It will burn you out after a time.
