Since 1982, Doyon Drilling, Inc. and Tanana Chiefs Conference have worked in partnership to recruit, select, train, and hire Doyon shareholders to become roustabouts.
Roustabout is an entry-level position within Doyon Drilling, Inc. This program provides a perfect opportunity for individuals interested in careers in the oil and gas industry, but who do not have experience on an oil rig.
Be aware that roustabout training has changed. Now, if an applicant is selected for further review, they will go through an interview process. Finalists will be placed in a pool and contacted for employment opportunities on an as-needed basis. When needed, applicants will be asked to participate in a week-long class conducted by Doyon Drilling, Inc. before going to the North Slope.
“Each day can be different, so you get multiple experiences in completing your task assignments in support of drilling operations and the opportunity to move up if you apply yourself and work safely.”
“I believe what makes a good roustabout is someone who has the desire to work hard, support their co-workers and the ability to work safely at all times”
