Drilling Rig

Author Tobias Shaver ( ago)
Reminds me of when I was Ruff necking in northern AB. It was hard work but
at the time pay was good, food was good, beer was good and the body got
into tip top shape. Can be very miserable work though especially when the
weather and other workers don't co-operate. A great experience overall

Класс! Молодцы канадцы.

Author Deoblo61369 ( ago)
so I have a few questions on the drilling aspect. im going to school to
become a petroleum geologist not a derrick hand so, what is going on with
the shoe that is being put in when connecting the pipes? also what's with
the chain being wrapped around the pipe?

Author Aung S. ( ago)

Is that pd 174, or pd 179. 

Author Mason B ( ago)
its a little more then "ouch" if your out of position sir!

Author snowrainsnowrain ( ago)
But don't they say the one shouldn't stay in the working area of tongs,
because it can slip and hurt someone.

Author snowrainsnowrain ( ago)
wow, so fast...

Author Greig Grey ( ago)
Yeah—! Looks like the good old days... Two floor hnds and spinning chain.
If the driller adjusted the Hydromatic a little, he'd get the pipe falling
faster. Set a trip time for the other crews to try and beat. Burn those
brake pads! They make 'em new every day...

Author The SimpleFighters ( ago)
Holy that looks like dangerous work, one person out of position and ouch..

BANG!, shit sorry man, Fuck man, common, I love it when a joint of pipe
slips the chain on the catwalk and does a Tokyo express down the catwalk
and punches a hole in the manifold shack, Kelly singles...

Fun to watch, I worked as a motorman in Alberta back in 1977-80 and
remember it fondly.

Author MyT2000 ( ago)
Service riggers come in and fix our fuckups? Thats hilarious we drill the
dam hole and they come in with their dinky ass pipe and fuckin power tongs
and run into the hole we drilled. Then they bitch that they do more work
and blah blah blah. If it were true and service rigs were harder work coadc
would have them making more money than us. How about you service riggers
come out of the strawberry patch and join us real riggers in the oil patch.

Author Michael Culm ( ago)
what you make is governed by the COADC lease hands 27 an hour roughnecks 30
an hour motors 32 an hour [this is all as of october some time 2012] you
can get the job even without your highschool but just remember that if your
going to be dumb you better be made of steel or your gonna die or kill
someone else. listen to what everyone above you says and tells you to do
and you'll have a better chance of enjoying that payday.

Author Samer Jasim ( ago)
thank you

Author julian vargas ( ago)
too many raps on dat chain

Author Israel DeHerrera ( ago)
I agree it takes a real man to do the job. But real men also need to be
concerned about their safety. This is a very risky job.

Author hocine lachehab ( ago)

Author Vladimir Putin ( ago)
Can I get a job like this straight out of high school? How much would I
earn starting out? Thanks!

Author Kimberley Mintenko Baker ( ago)
just to bad to see that it takes that many raps to spin it in

Author Mike Vega ( ago)
Good hands ,damn good chain hand too , its the life style we chose ,not
oilfield hands are drug users ,just smart ass titty babies making negative
comments in the warm house or daddy's truck with the fuel we provide , they
wouldn't last a day in our world

Author clayton weeks ( ago)

That looks fun. I drilled 6" production blast holes underground for 5
years. Very similar to this. Everything is based on the same principle.
Always wanted to work on an oil rig.

@jaahut Working concrete is easy shit Buddy, you obviously never worked the

Author HinmanFamilyLights ( ago)
@pantsarehard the chain is a "old" fast and efficient way to spin that pipe
together and use the tongs to tighten it up to specs. The newer rigs may
use a set of hydraulic tongs that spin the pipe and tighten with a pull of
a lever.

Author MegaSaginaw ( ago)
This job is not for dumbasses

Author DomcheckProduction ( ago)
Still have 10 fingers ?

Author DomcheckProduction ( ago)
so dangerous, easy going ...

Author baffinjigger ( ago)
@SH4DES1 Good for you, I'm a Financial Advisor myself. There wayyy too much
drugs on the rigs in Canada, especially Alberta.

Author SH4DES1 ( ago)
@baffinjigger i started at rock bottom with nothing, poor as fuck on my own
when i was 16, now im 18 and i can support myself and save money for other
career choices or college. besides the fact i also enjoy staying in shape
and physical work i would say its a pretty "good job" what do you do?
customer service? i agree alot of rig workers are dumb as fuck but most of
them in canada are good guys and saying we all smoke crack and get smashed
is ignorant.

Author baffinjigger ( ago)
@SH4DES1 All I got was I haven't had a good job in my life.

Author SH4DES1 ( ago)
@baffinjigger lol all i got from this is "boohoo im a roughneck and i cant
handle this shit" i work on a rig and dont drink or do anything and on my
days off im pretty much on a week long vacation. better than any other job
ive ever worked.

Author SH4DES1 ( ago)
@kaa10 depends on what kind of rig your working on, be prepared to work
your ass off and stay alert. and spend less time on youtube.

Author baffinjigger ( ago)
@MrDriller666 You're proof of how fucking stupid someone can be and work
their way up in the oilfield. I worked in the oilfield and on the rigs,
it's a miserable lifestyle, you piss away the short existence we have on
this earth on a lease then off to camp or maybe a hotel. Everybody's loaded
and doing rails or smoking a crack pipe on the way back from lease. Your
balls deep in mud and freezing cold while getting shouted at by a Push with
a small dick and a big truck. Now I have an awesome job!

Author MrBeautifulba1 ( ago)
Damn. That is truly tough work. You deserve a hell of alot more than
bankers do.

Author sprpwr ( ago)
God bless you guys. People just bitch and whine about gas prices (like me),
not knowing the hard work you guys do fishing for the oil. Great job
fellas. I am looking right now to get into working the rigs. No experience
in rigs but I have worked hard manual labor. Not as hard as this though but
I wanna get paid. What would be the bottom of the barrel job to start off?

Author Dildo Soup ( ago)
Why are you using chains?? Do you guys have iron roughnecks or is that how
you torque your stands??? Scary shit man. how many of you guy across the
pond lose fingers?

Author TOYDOLLSKID ( ago)
@SnoopDizzile i work on a single...a super single haha . easy shit. boring
as hell but pays more working 28/14. better than throwing tongs and 3 days
rig moves on triples...

Author Michael Culm ( ago)
@Fireupatree you earn ruffie you'd start as a lease hand and work your way
up if they didnt run you off first. aslong as you have a giver attitude and
you can handle being treated like a bitch till you prove your self than
you'll last more than a week. as for getting the job, get your H2S and
start applying and do your damn research. this work can kill you, like
right away so be smart and stay alert, look up and live.

Author Michael Culm ( ago)
@hiltzie Fuck yeah thats how its done boys!! get that chain spun!!!

Author then00best (1347 years ago)

Author beefshake ( ago)
Cool video and all, and I'm not in drilling, but to a 'fresh pair of eyes'
as they say, it doesn't look very ergonomic, and in general looks pretty
damn unsafe! Must be hard on the body after only a couple of years. Anyway,
much respect to anyone who works hard and loves what they do!

Author rogervigna ( ago)
Ottimo lavoro!! la catena non e ancora tramontata!! braviiiiiiiii

Author shagger67 ( ago)
@hiltzie you mean to say the guy running the spinning chain had a year in?
caught all his wraps good that time!

Author MrSyLeNT30 ( ago)
Hay razor really what do you do beside get the roughneck to take your shit
to the floor or are you just a frac guy who can't really work

Author Robert Garcia ( ago)

Author roadsiderods22 ( ago)
