Douglas Tompson: First lesson learned on the rigs – be good to the camp dishwasher

My name is Douglas Tompson and I’m an oil rig worker. I say that I’m an oil rig worker because it makes a long story much simpler. I used to be an oil rig worker and I travelled an unusual path into oilfield training, but I define myself as an experienced roughneck that rarely enjoys the sight of a rig floor.
