Look at the FOET if your

Look at the FOET if your renewing as it covers the cold water aspect and theres a bit of work going in the Bass Straight. I'd go to Fircroft before GRN, both supply labour to Clough Amec but Fircroft do it for multiple contracts, Woodside FPSO's and the Bayu Undan up in the Timor that Clough have whereas I've been told that you can't go thru Fircroft to Clough if you are already with GRN who only supply people for Woodside vessels. Try Total Marine Services TMS they have people on the Stena Clyde ( Semi sub drill rig) 4 on 4 off and also the contract for Apache on Varanus island and Stag Platform, try OGR and AHF offshore too, small companies but sometimes your best bet and be ready at short notice.   

If you can't be good, be good at it!

Dear Mike,
On the 25th and 26th May 2012, the AMMA miningoilandgas.com Expo will be running at the Burswood Entertainment Complex. This event is a must see if you are wishing to explore your options in the resources sector. Best of all its FREE Entry!
Over the two days, you can attend information sessions which will give you an awareness into industry employment options available, as well the chance to visit employer and industry displays. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to bring your high school aged children, as well as those graduating or have recently graduated university. If your looking for a career change, then I would head on down too!
The Federal government and Industry have forecasted that more than 62,000 new jobs will be created in the resources industry by 2015. So its a perfect time to either work towards a career in the industry or upskill to better employment and secure a new career.

cool thanks for the info

cool thanks for the info ,mike, i have been accepted for a job on an fpso, they rekon it was supposed to start about now but has been pushed back indefinetly, so who knows when that will start up. still trying for the rigs been everywhere and spoke to everyone, just one of those things, for someone like me with no experiance i guess its just a matter of the right place at the right time.
