Onshore & Offshore
An emerging sweet spot for the oil and gas industry, Africa is accelerating exploration and production developments in both its onshore and offshore sectors. National oil corporations are partnering with industry heavyweights from around the globe to rebuild infrastructure in the world's second largest continent. Vast oil and gas reserves are harnessed within Africa's respective countries, as well as the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Sea to the west.
A Rigger is someone who sets up equipment and prepares it before work can commence. The term "rigger" originates from sailing where sailors were responsible for raising the sails and rigging on board a ship. Scaffolding is a temporary structure built to support people and materials during repairs and maintenance of buildings and other structures. In the oil and gas industry, scaffolding is used on oil rigs to allow access to parts of the rig for maintenance and other work. An offshore scaffold will usually have to obtain safety certification for working at extreme heights.
