As an Operator/Mechanic, you are responsible for both the process and maintenance. When necessary, you perform regular maintenance, but preventive care is essential as well to prevent malfunctions. In addition, as an Offshore Operator or Mechanic, you are involved in ordering parts if they are not available on the platforms. In short, you ensure that the production process runs according to plan and, above all, safely.
My name is Floris, and I am Operator Mechanic on a production platform in the North Sea. As Operator Mechanic, I’m responsible for the progress of oil and gas extraction at sea. I can describe my daily tasks in two parts. First, you ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible and secondly, you are responsible for all mechanical maintenance on the platform. I started my AOT (General Operational Engineering) MBO-4 training at another company.
In my first 1.5 years, I followed the operator training throughout this other party. During this training, I worked on the central platform. On this platform, I received good help and time to complete this training.
I think that as an Operator Mechanic, you should have characteristics and skills such as:
Another part of my work consists of Operator tasks. In addition to the natural gas production process furthermore, I monitor alarms and immediately resolve these problems together with my colleagues. It is a job where no day is the same. Sometimes I will be transferred to smaller satellite platforms where I have a very independent function.
On these satellites, you are on your own, and you have a great responsibility. In doing so, I direct people and ensure that they can work in a safe working environment.
