I am a experienced welder in both the petro-chem and power generation industries. I am experienced in SMAW,GTAW,GMAW, and FCAW, as well as a 5th year CWI. I am interested in a offshore position to possibly get on a more consistant schedule. What kind of rotation do most rigs work? Will I need to sign a contract, and if so for how long? What kind of pay should I expect?
