  1. Hi, my wife has been sponsored on a 457 visa and we are moving with our two boys (11 & 9) in January. I currently work offshore UK North Sea as a control room operator on Buzzard platform. I've made a few contacts, but have nothing sorted as yet, if anybody knows anybody looking for production guys, would appreciate the heads up! Cheers Chris
  2. I live in the United States and we have a show called House Hunters International. One show was about a North Sea oil worker who moved to Australia with his wife and kids. With this description I wonder if anyone knows which type of Visa he used or if Australia makes a special exception for high paid workers. A) He was a North Sea oil worker based in Scotland. I believe he was an engineer. B) He worked 6 months out of the year in Scotland and had 6 months off. C) He moved his family to a vacation town north of Brisbane. D) After the move his family lived in Australia year round. E) The engineer kept his job in Scotland. He worked 6 months in the North Sea and spent the other six months with his family in Australia. I don't think he came in as a skilled migrant because he never intended to get a job in Australia. It got me wondering if Australia allows high paid workers to immigrate to it's shores. Is there a special visa for that? Thanks for any input!
  3. I have heard of Mermaid Marine but are there any other oil and gas companies offering employment for electricians? At present I have my 176 state permanent residency but do not live in Australia and work as an Electro Technical Officer for an offshore UK company.

I realize as being a Slater i would have to start at the very bottom in the said industry but hey am willing and able to learn, just a thought. thanks stevie:notworthy:
  7. Good day to you all. Just out of interest is there anyone on here come over from the UK to work in the Oil and Gas offshore sector? The reason I ask is that me and the wife are coming out in April for a 6 month reccie and was just wondering how other halves find it when we go offshore for 5 weeks? She will be kinda left on her own for a long time in a new country. Also we will be looking for some furnish accommodation / holiday let in Perth from mid April for approx 6 months if anyone has anything going? Cheers Martin
  8. Hi I am a 25 year old designer, with 8 years of experience on AutoCAD and 6 years experience on SolidWorks. I emigrate to Perth on March 29th 2011, and I am desperate to get into the Oil & Gas or Mining sectors. What is the best way to achieve this? What are the best recruitment agencies or courses? Or if anybody knows of any drafting jobs in the Perth area if you could let me know, that would be brilliant! Thanks M.

  17. Oil prices fell to their lowest level for about four months amid expectations that slower world growth would reduce demand. Light, sweet crude traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange - the world's benchmark price - touched 112.75 US dollars before edging up slightly. It is nearly 25% lower than the 147.27 US dollars seen in the second week of July. The drop came after Europe's biggest economies - Germany, France and Italy - contracted during the second quarter. Japan also said this week that its gross domestic product shrank between April and June, while Bank of England Governor Mervyn King warned that the UK economy was likely to shrink in the coming year. Victor Shum, an energy analyst with consultancy Purvin & Gertz in Singapore, said: "Worries about an economic slowdown in the US and Europe, and even Japan, are weighing on the oil market." Oil also fell despite the continuing tensions between Russia and Georgia. In the UK, average petrol prices have fallen 6.5p to 113.15p during the past month, the AA said. Petrol prices peaked on July 17 at 119.7p per litre. The average price of diesel has fallen from 131.56p per litre to 125.58p, a saving of 6p a litre. But filling up a tank is costing normally £1 more than it should, the AA has argued, based on falling wholesale prices which are down 18%. That equates to an 8.5p per litre reduction in the average price of unleaded petrol, taking it down to 111.2p. The AA's Paul Watters said: "Whichever way you look at it, many drivers are being short-changed by around a £1 a tank when they fill up with petrol in the UK. As well as undermining family budgets, selfishly holding back two pence a litre in wholesale price reductions is denying potential consumer spending at other local businesses suffering from falling sales."
  18. Hi.Does anybody out there have any contacts for working in the oil and gas industry? I do have some contacts but always looking for more and a better pay scale..Maybe we could swop some direct e mail contacts. Please get in touch.

    Oil Related Companies

    As I've said before we fancy either Perth or Adelaide. Can anyone tell me if Adelaide has an oil related sector or is it a big fat No before we start?! We have found that Perth seems to be as Aberdeen is to GB - the oil capital of the country. Can anyone suggest some good companies my husband can approach re a production position or similar. He wants to find a job before selling up and moving out - doesn't want to get out there and then not be able to get a good job and have to go back the way. Since he is to be the main applicant I have to understand his position which I do so can anyone suggest some companies for us please? Reenie
