Work is primarily in the field environment including land based and offshore drilling and production platforms. In some cases work is completed on location after the drilling rig has departed location.
Typically, work is accomplished in an “outside” environment. Exposure to all weather extremes is normal. Noise levels are generally quite high with electrical power systems and their associated turbine driven systems in full operation nearby. Other rig related equipment is always in operation and will include draw works, blocks, cranes, pumping systems and blowout control systems. Service techs may be required to rest and sleep in their company vehicle at the well site.
Very physical job requiring frequent lifting, pulling, pushing, climbing and driving. Uses mechanical hand tools including all types of manual wrenches and many types of power tools driven with hydraulics, electronics and pneumatics.
