With over 15 years experience working within the drilling industry, initially as a Roustabout offshore in the North Sea, Alan quickly grew through the ranks to become a Driller,  a title which he held for 7 years and was fortunate enough to work on conventional semi subs and 5th Gen DP deepwater semi subs in various locations around the world, including the North Sea, the Falkland Islands and West Africa.
