    Unfortunately for you this is a very bad time to be looking for work on drilling rigs. The oil price has fallen by more than 50% in the last year and many drilling companies have gone bankrupt. Those that survived have cut large numbers of staff so there is a large number of highly experienced oilmen who are now unemployed. I am currently working on a drillship in Angola and my firm has lost many contracts. I am one of the lucky few who has not (yet) been laid off. I think the best thing you can do for now is get your seatime and go for your marine engineer officer licence. Then when the oil drilling industry gets back on its feet you will have a better chance of entering the industry. A marine licence is required for engineers working on drill ships and semi-subs and other MODUs.

      Unfortunately for you this is a terrible time to be searching for work on penetrating apparatuses. The oil cost has fallen by more than half in the most recent year and numerous penetrating organizations have gone bankrupt. Those that survived have cut extensive quantities of staff so there is a substantial number of profoundly experienced oilmen who are presently unemployed. I am presently dealing with a drillship in Angola and my firm has lost numerous agreements. I am one of the fortunate few who has not (yet) been laid off. I think the best thing you can accomplish for the present is get your seatime and go for your marine architect officer permit. At that point when the oil penetrating industry gets back on its feet you will have a superior shot of entering the business. A marine permit is required for architects chipping away at drill boats and semi-subs and different MODUs.
