The certs needed to be ‘offshore ready’ in oil and gas offshore, are the MIST, BOSIET and OGUK medical. Read more about them.
This website is about oil and gas and the offshore industry in the UK and north sea. This website is mainly for people new/newer to the industry to help you on your journey to your job offshore whether it is a rig or a vessel.
We put the majority of the info in the guide for jobs on oil rigs and boats, there are other pages on the website with different bits of information.
I have worked in oil and gas for 10 years.
I started putting notes together during some downtime over the course of a few trips offshore, and it gathered momentum pretty fast, people wanted to chip in some info, and now the guide is now 35+ pages.
I think this next year is the most useful time to have a guide like this, to give you the useful information to make your decisions.
I have kept my identity somewhat hidden, just in case I have written something or used an image that might affect my, or other peoples jobs.
