Linn Jeanette SkoglundHired Ross Star since:
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.
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.
Amazing colleagues and you get the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of different people.
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.
I can play multiple musical instruments.
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.
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.
