    Do you work somewhere crazy or exciting?

    I work in the oilfield along the northern arctic coast of alaska and inspect pipelines internally (pipeline pigging) I do 2 weeks of work here then get 2 weeks off back and forth. I spend my off time in south florida, its a hell of a commute to work lol.

    Anyway i made this lil fake movie trailer on iMovie app on my phone about this crazy place and the people at work get a kick outta it so i figured id share Click here to enlarge

    Its cold here -39 today and -70 windchill it gets to -50 or -60 ambient routinely in the winter and the nearest civilization is Fairbanks, AK several hundred miles to the south. The sun sets around thanksgiving and doesnt return until late Jan/early Feb and we are plagued by blizzards from oct to may.

    Not all is bad though, its a sweet gig, the moneys good, and the sun rises in May and doesnt set till august Click here to enlarge

    If you dont mind doing a rotation 2X2 3X3 etc.. look up North Slope alaska oilfield jobs Check out Udelhoven, Ch2mhill, asrc, aes, Bp, Shell, doyon etc... Also check out North Dakota oilfield jobs, that place is blowing up! Lots of opportunities for pipe fitter, welders, construction, management, CDL drivers, equip operators etc.

    if you or any one by chance apply for a job in the north slope oilfield, PM me and let me know, you can use me as a reference, i have a little pullClick here to enlarge
