Oil & Gas Roustabout and Roughneck work in the Middle East

There's hardly any other place in the world, where you can find as many oil drilling contractors and oil producing companies, as in the UAE and Dubai / Abu Dhabi specifically. And naturally, all of them not only drill to produce crude oil, but also generate lots of jobs in different disciplines and branches, from highly educated Cyber Drillers or Subsea Engineers in the offshore sector to the low end positions of Roustabout and Roughneck, without whom on drilldeck no oil rig could even start to operate.
