Whoever had an opportunity of working on offshore oil rigs, knows there exist several different types of oil drilling platforms/facilities such as submersibles, semi-submersibles, jackup platform that perform drilling wells in shallow waters, and on the contrary, the drillships designed for deepwater drilling, but their hired personnel do the jobs that are in fact very similar as for the duties, skills, and responsibilities involved. In other words, they need the same people to ensure their the continuity of their operation.
There are regional specifics, though. If you take for example South Africa, the crews on the oil rig there normally comprise 6 persons or so, each of whom is attributed their own set of the responsibilities so that together they are able to work for the success of their common goal at this or that phase of the oil drilling. Oil rigs themselves are either leased or ones belonging to the oil rig manager who got contract for drilling oil within the frame of a specific project on oil reserves exploration. The process can be lengthy. In course of drilling the mud samples are being analyzed meaning to detect the oil traces, if any. That job is being done by person called mud logger. If drilling ends in failure, the oil drilling facility is being tugged to a different location, and once at destination, the process re-starts.
