Rafal’s drilling adventure began at the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy. After completing a master degree in drilling and geological engineering he started his professional career as a roughneck for Petrobaltic S.A. on a Jack-up based in the Baltic Sea. Rafal then worked his way up to mud engineer.
In 2011 he joined ENI Group on a 6th generation ultra drill ship, Saipem 12000, operating in Angola’s deepwater as a derrickman where is now working hard and gathering experience for further professional challenges.
Rafal is in a relationship with wonderful girl, Martha, and they are expecting their first child, a baby boy, to arrive on 1st of September 2014!
When he is not working, Rafal is passionate about radio control R/C planes. He builds and flies fighters of World War II and his favourite model is the spitfire mkIX of 303 Polish Fighter Squadron. He also enjoys travelling and outdoor pursuits such as diving in summer and skiing in winter.
For some time now, Rafal has been saving for a Muscle Car Dodge Charger 69, but plans have changed and he now plans to put the £250 towards a ride for his son.
We are extremely pleased to hear your exciting news, Rafal, and we wish you and Martha all the best of luck as new parents!
