As I said, the larger companies for HIRE ONS are now requiring hair tests, but it seems to vary for the randoms which is possibly why you haven't had one. For instance, a guy I work with says Weatherford will both random hair or urine and he nevers knows which until he shows up, but all new-hires ar...

Depends on the size of the company you are working for. The majority of larger companies (operators and service companies, not sure about drilling contractors) now are going to hair testing for the initial hire on, and subsequent random testing may be urine or hair from what I've heard....

If you could get on somewhere as a directional driller that would be a great start. You will pick up alot of valuable knowledge on how to drill a well. Just pay attention to all the other stuff outside of your immediate work scope when you have the time, running casing, cementing, etc. The moer you ...

Yeah I understand if you can't switch - it's a tough thing to do for a wide range of reasons. All you really need is a foot in the door, and once you get that you'll be set. In my opinion with already having offshore experience I would try and target the majors, ie Exxon, Chevron, etc. Be sure to te...

I am a petroleum grad - Jan 06.
You can definitely be a drilling engineer without being a PETE - granted that is probably the "best" degree to have if you want to be a drilling / completions engineer. That said, the majors higher all different engineering disciplines to fill them out. Mechanical,...
