Meet our Ross Star, Linn Jeanette!


Linn Jeanette Skoglund

Hired Ross Star since:

May 2019

I was born and grew up in the beautiful city of Bergen, Norway. I lived a year in Edinburgh, Scotland during my second year of high school, and five years in Stavanger while studying Petroleum Engineering. My master’s degree was completed in 2015 and I decided to move back to Bergen. While waiting for the right time to start working in the oil & gas industry I continued studying and started my second master’s degree, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I got a job as a completion engineer intern while studying, and then started working in Ross Offshore as a drilling engineer in 2019. My second master’s degree was completed a month after becoming a Ross Offshore employee. I always knew I wanted to work in the oil & gas industry and feel lucky to be a part of it.

1. Briefly describe a normal workday for you?

I always start my workday with a coffee. Work varies depending on the day. In the planning period I will be spending the day planning the well. During operations, the day will start of by reading the daily report before attending a morning meeting with the rig. Then I will be assisting the offshore drilling engineer and drilling supervisor.

2. What is the best thing about being a Ross Star (working in Ross)?

Amazing colleagues and you get the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of different people.

3. What do you like to do when you're not at work?

I do enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I got two kids and they take up a lot of my time. Music is something I really enjoy, and I usually go to several concerts each year.
I am a passionate football supporter (especially Liverpool) and love watching football at home or in stadiums. Either it’s a stadium abroad or Brann Stadion. One can say that I am above average interested in football.

4. Do you have a hidden talent?

I can play multiple musical instruments.

5. What do you think will be the most important thing we do at Ross Offshore into the future?

The oil and gas industry will still be important in the future and will continue to be an essential industry for Ross Offshore. However, I think Ross Offshore will be listening to customers and adapt to changes. It is important to stay relevant.

6. Which of our values is your favorite, and why?

Reliable – I think it is important to be trustworthy, dependable, and helpful. Both at work and private. When you mostly work in teams you are heavily relying on other people.
