What type of skills have you acquired from working at LV Energy that will help you in the future?
Almost too many to list. I came to LV as green as a guy could be. I was scared and lacked confidence coming into the oil industry. I was paired up with experienced people and was taught to do's and don'ts. Soon after I was trained up on running a steamer unit and was set free to follow a service rig for the winter. I was scared and didn't want to be out on my own, but am now glad I stuck with it as I learned a boat load this winter. Everything from navigating To/From LSD's, working with rig crews/consultants. The list goes on. After one winter with LV, I am learning more about super heating and would have no issues with being sent anywhere in Alberta, get onto lease rigged in and up and running on my own. 6 months ago I couldn't say this.
