Certification Tracking for Oilfield Contractors

As the price of oil and rig count gradually increase, we see the demand for well qualified and low-risk labor steadily follows in sequence. However, when ramping up personnel to stay in stride with operations it is essential to ensure your company is hiring an experienced, compliant workforce.

One speed bump in this process is that operators are typically restricted to hiring vendors only from their approved vendor list. But what exactly does that process look like?

Years ago, we learned that the majority of the industry is managing vendors through winded spreadsheets or clunky out-of-date software. This led corporations to pay thousands of dollars for a glorified filing cabinet that spit out a letter grade for each vendor. The red flag with these systems is that vendors are being graded on a company scale, but the work is being performed on an individual basis. So, how does a supervisor ensure that each individual of a contract workforce is properly vetted?

With RigUp, the solutions are automated and simple. Contract labor sourced through the RigUp platform ensures a full 100% compliance with operator specifications. RigUp users are empowered to oversee and ensure that each individual approved to work on location has the most up-to-date training and certifications. And never miss a step with our proprietary automated workforce updates. Rest easy knowing that every hire is the right hire.

Certification tracking also provides advantages for hiring managers looking to onboard experienced, certified personnel. For example, a hiring manager on RigUp has the ability to filter the marketplace by specific certifications, such as well control certification, Safeland, SafeGulf or RigPass. The RigUp Contractor Marketplace ranks and promotes only the most certified individuals in your labor search.

At RigUp, we provide the best experience for hiring managers by populating our marketplace with A+ service providers. In this environment, service providers are empowered to get greater visibility through highlighting their qualifications and certifications on the RigUp platform. The individuals who boost their profiles through this medium are the same ones who are getting the calls, interviews and new jobs.

If your company is currently hiring, check out the RigUp Marketplace to how easy it is to find local, qualified oilfield consultants and contractors.

American Resource Development, LLC (Ameredev) is an Austin based E&P company focused on the Permian Basin. Ameredev has successfully leveraged RigUp’s Subcontracting Program as a solution to help build out their oilfield crew to work on drilling, completions and production activities, which include Mud Engineers and Lease Operators.

Ameredev was able to get up and running with the RigUp Subcontracting Program in next to no time, onboarding 17 new contractors in less than a week, with each individual screened and ready to go in 24 hours.

Zach Boyd, Operations Superintendent at Ameredev provided some feedback on his recent experience with RigUp. He explained, “It’s a very simple process onboarding the Contract Personnel.”

Based on a company’s requirements, RigUp can perform background and reference checks, drug and alcohol screenings and the validation of training requirements to meet an organization’s standards. Once complete, contractors are ready to step foot on location and get to work.

Zach added, “RigUp allows ease of operations to assign work and is prompt and straightforward with invoicing.”

In addition to a seamless onboarding process, RigUp offers payroll administration for its subcontractors, including an easy way to log hours online. RigUp’s professional support team is always on-hand to assist both operators and contractors with any industry related challenges.

“The contractors have all been exceptionally pleased to be under the RigUp subcontracting umbrella. I have had very good feedback from the field,” says Zach Boyd.

The high level of satisfaction reported by RigUp’s subcontractors directly correlates to the benefits RigUp provides. By offering the best rates in the industry (substantially less than the standard of 15-20%), contractors take home more of their hard-earned money and receive it on-time, every two weeks. Since signing up to the RigUp program, the independent contractors performing work for Ameredev have realized a combined increase of more than 10% in their net earnings.
