Offshore Jobs – Roustabout Work

If you’ve ever considered offshore jobs as something you might like to do, there certainly is no time like the present to accomplish that. While you might think that there have been no new openings, the reality is that the moratorium (which has been overturned in Federal Court) only affects a small percentage of all offshore oil jobs.

This mistaken thinking on the part of many prospective applicants for vacancies in marine jobs means that there are now more jobs than there are applicants for them. The offshore oil industry is still working. Only the deepwater wells have been affected and these account for less than a quarter of the offshore wells that are out there and are actually only United States based.

Roustabout work on offshore oil rigs is fairly plentiful. It doesn’t take much to gain a position in offshore oil as a roustabout, and you can get a great salary if you’re willing to put up some real effort. Roustabouts generally begin as manual labor, but the reality is that you will move up in the ranks if you show the right attitude-as well as the right aptitude.

Roustabout offshore jobs are positions that see those with minimal skills on the rig moving into a position that pays them quite well for unskilled labor. You’re going to work fairly hard, there is no doubt about that.

Scraping rust, painting, seeing to the general upkeep of the rig, and helping out in maintenance in multiple ways are just part of the job. You will be working in all kinds of weather, from very warm to very cold. Outdoor work has its benefits, but as we all know, it also has its bad points too. Getting a job on the offshore rigs means that you’re going to be working the weather at its worst.

While the work is difficult, where else are you going to find a job that is this lucrative for a position that gives you as much time off as you have on when you are working. Most roustabout jobs in offshore oil begin at about $50,000 dollars per year. They also offer you 2-4 weeks working on the offshore rig, and an equal amount of time away from work.

The roustabout work, as mentioned does take some real time and effort, but the quality of the pay, and the interesting lifestyle makes it more than worthwhile to apply for these positions. Classes in roustabout work can now be found both offline and online to help you to understand what you will be doing, as well as what kind of a climate and atmosphere you;’re going to be working in. The long range of these roustabout, or roughneck jobs is that you will most likely not stay in this position for more than a year if you’re serious about moving up the ladder. Offshore jobs tend to move you quickly into another position that you prove you are ready for.
