Here is my number. I believe this is the minimum and it can go higher depending on your situations and/or seniority.
  • Reservoir Engineering: $1900
  • Logistic Manager: $900
  • Production Engineer: $1300
  • Geologist: $1800
  • HSE Coordinator: $1000
  • Well Performing Engineer: $1900
  • Operations Manager: $1500
  • Facility Engineer: $1300
  • QA/QC Engineer: $1100
  • Well Testing Engineer: $1900

I think the day rate can go about 50% more. I have known some Senior Geologist, Senior Completion Engineer, Drilling Supervisor who made $3000/day.

I know a guy who is a senior specialist of drilling equipment and specialized in BOP. He said that when the BP Macondo incident happened back in 2010 and he was a consultant, BP called him out to the area to work with the team to try to stop the spill, they paid him $500 per hour for his service. He said that within few weeks of working on that incident, he made the money of almost his annual salary.
