The best company I ever worked in. Lost job as their contract finished
Operator (Former Employee) - Kuwait - April 19, 2019
Best company. Lost job because of the contract finished. So looking for new job in the same field. I am very happy with the companies fecities and I am interested in the same company if they have any other jobs.
Things have gradually turned for the worst for this company, as they have been struggling with internal issues well before the oil price crash in 2014, which further exasperated their problems. This led to massive cost cutting, headcount reduction, and extreme stress for those of us left.
Every day is different. Start with safety meeting it could be drilling , tripping, running casing, logging.
I learned to drill a new formation, and keep drilling progress at high standard. i all so learned how to safely manage the crew and other ongoing operations
I reported to management on the day progress and suggest any changed to be made.
I worked with multi national crews it is important to explain every operation and build a safe workplace culture.
It is hard to communicate with multi national crews.
The end of every shift, i review the days progress that is a best part of my day.
