Lead Drill Site Manager / Occidental Petroleum (Former Employee) – Pecos, Texas – June 27, 2015
I am a Drill Site Manager, I work 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. I spend 2 weeks living on location in a trailer with an office. There are really no set hours. I am required to work a 12 hour shift, but my days are usually 16 to 18 hour days. Because I am the Lead DSM if there are any problems that ariseI am their to solve them, I have been up for 36 - 72 hours with 1-2 hour naps here and there until the issue is resolved. I usually wake up at 5:00am and go over the 30 hour report we have to send in every morning before 5:00am and put together a 12 hour plan forward for the crews coming on at 6:00am. At 5:30am I conduct a meeting with crews (Rig manager, directional drillers, mud loggers, solids control hands, rig hands, mud engineers, and any 3rd party hands performing a job on my location) discussing their roles in our operations and any safety issues that may arise in the next 12hrs. I walk around the rig check on the crews and make sure we are all staying on top of our jobs, that there are no safety issues, and everything is running smoothly. I call into our conference call with management in Houston at 7:30am, discussing our safety and operational outlook over the next 24 hours and answer any questions they may have. I then ensure all logistics are taken care of (cement crew, casing crew, testers, etc.) is set up to be on location and on time for a seamless transition between operations. Conduct safety meetings with any 3rd party crews on location, before executing their job. I then double check inventory to make sure that everything is ready for the next step in the drillingmore... process and backup tools are on location in case of any failures (bits, fluid, tools, casing, etc.). Salesman and 3rd party company reps usually start pouring in at around 8:30am Monday - Friday. I sign invoices and field tickets. Always double-checking that the tickets are accurate. I always do walk arounds on the rig to ensure all employees are staying on top of their jobs, staying safe, and answer any questions that may arise. My night guy wakes up at 5:00pm. I do handover notes with him to ensure he knows whats going on, that any potential hazards / failures are recognized and solutions are in place. Conduct safety meeting with crew coming on at 6:00pm on the last 12 hours and go over our plan forward for the next 12 hours operations and goals. Throughout the day I am entering data into our 30 hour report, at this time I finish up with my 12 hours inside our reporting system, handing it over to my night guy. By now it is around 8:00 - 9:00pm.less
