There is a new Independent YouTube channel called Energy Insider. See their BOSIET video below.
How it works, what the jobs are, who to contact, agency list are etc. Ideal for people who want to work offshore but have no experience, also useful for people in the industry for ideas to change jobs. It’s 38 pages as of Rev 3.
The certs needed to be ‘offshore ready’ in oil and gas, the offshore survival courses are the MIST, BOSIET and OGUK medical, and as of a couple years ago, you need ‘fit to train’ to do the HUET part of the BOSIET. Read more about them.
For the GWO wind industry, working on the construction of wind turbines, both onshore and offshore. See our list of GWO training locations where you can take the ‘wind turbine’ offshore survival courses.
Since it’s a very closed industry that nobody sees, let’s shine some light on some of these oil rig jobs, and if you have no experience offshore then you’ll find it interesting. Before you do your oil rig training courses, have a read to see if you see a job you like, and learn a little about what jobs are available.
I (the main editor of this website) have worked offshore in both oil/gas and the wind turbine industry for 10 years.
I started putting notes together during some downtime, and over the course of a few trips offshore, and it gathered momentum pretty fast, people wanted to chip in some info, and now, it became a growing resource for people interested in the oil/gas/renewables industry.
Identities of contributors are somewhat hidden, just in case I have written something or used an image that might affect my, or other peoples jobs.
