want to tell my buddy about this but how do you apply?

You can apply online by going to the conoco website and registering and filling out the application

They are a good company to work with. They have a rotation I think of 75 days on 55 days off with pay. I recently worked with Chevron Shipping, but I am not needed due to them scrapping a couple of ships. I am out of work, so I just reapplied with Conoco. We will wait and see how it goes. They mostly want tanker and crude oil experience.

[B][I]You have to go directly to the Conoco Phillips website and apply online…good luck[/I][/B]
