Marius has 14 years’ experience in the offshore oil and gas industry, starting out as a ‘roustie’ in the Forties field and progressing to UDW Driller on Pacific drill ship. He has worked in UK, Brazil, Argentina, West Africa, and also found the time to complete a Petroleum Engineering course through a distance learning programme at Herriot-Watt University.
Marius has been happily married for over 20 years to his lovely wife, Helen. They have two wonderful kids: daughter, Eva and son, Roland. They live in Lithuania and a year ago moved to countryside where Marius always has a project on the go, from chopping wood, to gardening, to construction projects with welding works in the garage. The family occasionally gets also involved, when possible, and safe to do so!
Outside of work, Marius loves to spend time with the family. In summer, they enjoy camping, fishing, and hiking in various places across Europe with the help of their motorhome to get them about. In winter, they’re often found skiing.
Marius tells is that his well control course has become a ritual of five days’ shopping 'therapy' for his wife (she usually joins him on the trip to Aberdeen), and so the prize money was spent before it was awarded! Haha! :)
Congratulations and we’ll see you again next time, Marius!
