Any comments, advice or small talk about your endeavors in the oilfield?
It's just like any other electrical job, you really just need to get up to speed on how the NEC applies and wiring methods , lots of RMC work so you'll need to tool up on that type of equipment needed to do that type of work.

Just reading RobRoy's thread lot's of cool meters and such.:thumbsup:

Been in the oilfield/industrial for about 20 years.. Lots of different weather conditions - from mud to heat to snow to cold.. And lots of extremes.. The coldest I've worked in was -52C (-62F) and the hottest would be ?? - it was 45C (113F) outside and I came outside to cool off...

Lots of different technology too.. From relay panels to PLCs to DCSs to fibre optic... Stuff that is 1 month old to stuff that is 50+ years old.. Complete and detailed drawings on site to none...

Best advice.. Never stop learning.. And don't think you've ever "seen it all".. When you, you soon find out how wrong you are... Don't claim to know it all.. IF you are proficient on the equipment you maintain that is good, but if you get in over your head, don't be afraid to phone their technical gurus... They maintain it for a living!
