Working in the GOM for 2 weeks
Offshore Platform Mechanic GOM (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – August 30, 2014
get up every morning at 5 check out all equipment, do a little paperwork, eat lunch check on equipment, overall easy job unless everything breaks at once then you have to fly from platform to platform to work on different equipment. lots of ordering parts daily maintenance adding oil coolant etc...
food is good offshore, and lots of it, almost all rigs have workout equipment..
it is hard being away from your family for 2 weeks up to 6 weeks at a time...
