Rig Jobs – How Dangerous Are They?

A lot of people are seeking out the offshore oil rig jobs in an effort to gain a higher salary for their work. Offshore rig jobs are lucrative positions that tend to pay a great deal more than their dry-land counterparts.

Rig jobs on offshore wells even at entry level pay far more than their counterparts. They are an amazing way to make money on a higher level, even if you’re not traditional oil well workers.

Part of the reason for the higher pay is the excitement, the hard work, and in some small part, the danger that is involved in offshore oil drilling. It is the need for specialty skills and specialty information that makes the jobs so lucrative in part, but what’s the rest? So are the offshore jobs really so dangerous?

In actuality, the rig jobs are a bit more dangerous but the reality is that you’re probably more likely to be hurt on a construction job that pays less than 10 dollars an hour. Frankly, while there are risks involved in the offshore rig jobs, and some are more dangerous than others, it is the risk factor involved that makes it a bit more lucrative.

Considering how prolific that offshore drilling has been and the many wells that are currently being drilled, as well as the many wells in operation, there have been really relatively few disasters to speak of. The gulf disaster, the most recent one, was only one of three disasters that involved an offshore oil rig that have been recorded of all the oil rigs that are safely operating. Bombay High and Usumacinta are the only other ones which are documented.

According to CBS news, there are currently 3500 offshore wells and rigs in use. The number of deepwater wells is about 79. The wells are operating in safety and they are fully staffed. In other words, rig jobs are still in full swing and the fact that one disaster took place doesn’t mean you’re not going to get an offshore job any time soon.

Some types of rig jobs of course are a bit more dangerous than others. The basic jobs that are available on rigs are electrician, welder, electrical technician, roustabout or roughneck, medic, cook, and office staff. Each of these jobs will pay quite a lot more than you might expect to gain for a similar job on dry land.

Offshore rigs aren’t going anywhere any time soon. They will be hiring for months and years to come as the deepwater and shallow water drilling explorations continue in order to meet the words need for petroleum sources.

Jobs are out there and are waiting for you if you want them. The trick is finding the right company, the right geographic location and the right method of application. Knowing who to apply to, as well as a few tricks about the interview process will help you to secure your dream rig jobs on an offshore well.
