What’s In My Truck? The Essentials for an Independent Contractor in the Field

In the oil and gas industry, almost all professionals working on a rig or wellsite are expected to drive a truck (or similar vehicle)—usually due to poor lease road conditions. Now, a field professional with their long shifts and remote locations would be lost without a well-packed truck. When headed on location for a hitch, an independent oil and gas contractor must carry the following four necessities:

  1. Fire-resistant clothing and steel-toed boots
  2. Groceries and cleaning supplies
  3. Office supplies
  4. Knowledge and experience
