What does it take to have a career in the drilling industry?
Drillers and Driller’s Offsiders are as diverse a group of people as the industry in which they work. Every drilling operation is different and requires highly skilled personnel to ensure the drilling process is successful.
Despite the diversity, a Driller’s ‘profile’ contains the following basic characteristics:
Preferring to work outdoors and can make the necessary accommodations when working in various weather environments. They enjoy travelling and can live and work in isolated places. A Driller works long hours and perseveres under adverse conditions.
Drillers and Driller’s Offsiders should have a mechanical background and enjoy working with machinery. They are resourceful people and are seen as capable of solving problems as they arise.
Communication skills are an integral part of the Driller’s profile. A Driller must be capable of effectively communicating with Geologists, Engineers, Consultants, Landholders and all others involved in a project to ensure efficient and economical results.
Excellent physical health and the ability to work well with others is essential.
