At IWA Manpower, we provide skilled and experienced rig welders for the oil and gas industry. Our team of welders are trained to perform a variety of welding techniques to ensure that the welds meet the highest standards of safety and quality.

Oil rig welders are essential for the construction and maintenance of oil and gas rigs, platforms, and pipelines. These welders must be knowledgeable about the unique challenges of working in offshore environments, such as high winds, waves, and extreme weather conditions. They must also be able to work at great heights and be comfortable working in confined spaces.

Underwater welding is also an important aspect of oil rig welding. Underwater welders must be trained to work with specialized equipment to repair and maintain pipelines and structures in deep water environments. Our team of oil rig welders are experienced in both above and below water welding techniques, and are committed to providing high-quality and reliable services to our clients in the oil and gas industry


There are several types of oil rigs that require rig welders, including drillships, semi-submersibles, jack-ups, and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. Each type of oil rig has unique welding challenges and requirements, so it is important for rig welders to be experienced in a variety of welding techniques and equipment.

Welder salaries in the oil rig industry can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as experience level, location, and type of rig. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for welders, cutters, solderers, and brazers was $45,190 as of May 2020. However, rig welders in the oil and gas industry may earn higher salaries due to the demanding nature of the work and the specialized skills required. It is important to note that wages can vary widely depending on the specific job and employer
