Following a career path in the Oil & Gas industry is certainly challenging. Allthough the benefits are very attractive and generlaly a lot of time off work is provided (up to 6 months per year) to enjoy everyday living with the family, living and working on a rig is still considered one of the most hazardous jobs.
The exposure to extreme weather conditions, the geographical isolation, the demanding travelling routine, the parting from your loved ones for weeks, the unhealthy nature of oil, gas, its derivatives and the drilling processes, as well as the increased accident risk from handling machinery and working around flamable gases and liquids, are closely associated with this market.
With this in mind, one of the benefits often offered to Oil & Gas workers is a comprehensive international medical insurance – one that would cover emergencies anywhere these might occur, while stationed at an offshore rig or while palying catch with your children at your back garden. Moreover, the medical insurance plans for Oil & Gas workers usually contain medical evacuation cover, to make sure proper medical attention is provided, as quickly as possible.
