The photo above was snapped by my colleague – Toni Juritno; using iPhone4 mobile phone, when we worked together at the drilling rig West Prospero, off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
Mid-2014, I had to take chance of job opportunities in Malaysia. One of the leading European oil companies, implementing programs in the field of oil drilling east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This plan would explore drilling time approximately 16 wells in the program one more year, so I should be ready to undergo the task as a Wellsite Geologist at drilling rig.
Starting with the first exploration well and success, with penetrating some rock formations, including the reservoir layer, taking rock core samples , perform a series of the electric logging (wireline logging).
Schedule this time, I worked for three weeks. Starting from the top and the drilling of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Luckily, I was able to go home before the day of Eid. Fasting in this year of Ramadan at the drilling rig, feels normal; because I was accompanied by my senior colleague, Toni Juritno.
Some of the photos in this page are my shots. Taken from the drilling rig. The digital camera is belong to company, Nikon Coolpix S3600. This pocket camera produces good pictures; of course they are need to process by Adobe Photoshop.
