Being a Mechanical Engineer, you are already well equipped in terms of handling equipment and handling machinery.

In an oil rig, mainly the knowledge oil the rig machine and its utility is what is required.

Oil rig companies do provide the basic training required in terms of finding crude oil, digging and surfacing, but they mainly require people having knowledge of handling and dealing with heavy equipment, rest training is provided by the company in-charge.

Some of the roles you could fit in involves:
  • Roustabouts: Duties includes cleaning equipment and work areas, operating electronic detectors, to make inspections of flow lines, repairing oilfield machinery, fixing parts of steam engines and boilers, and guiding cranes.
  • Derrick Operators: As the name suggest, these are guys who handles derrick, repairs pumps, ensures that drilling fluid is flowing, align dereck equipment, maintaining rig equipment. If you are afraid of heights then avoid this job, since dereck operators, swing around the oil rigs.
  • Engine operators: They are in charge of the engine that provides power.
