A take no prisoners' approach to life has seen Paul
Carter heading to some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous
places as a contractor in the oil business. Amazingly, he's survived
(so far) to tell these stories from the edge of civilization, and
Paul Carter has been shot at, hijacked and held hostage.
He's almost died of dysentery in Asia and toothache in Russia,
watched a Texan lose his mind in the jungles of Asia, lost a lot of
money backing a mouse against a scorpion in a fight to the death, and
been served cocktails by an orang-utan on an ocean freighter. And
that's just his day job.
Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote
regions, not to mention some of the roughest oil rigs on the planet,
Paul has worked, gotten into trouble and been given serious talkings to
in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and
Tunisia, as exotic as Sumatera, Vietnam and Thailand, and as flat out
dangerous as Columbia, Nigeria and Russia, with some of the maddest,
baddest and strangest people you could ever hope not to meet.
Strap yourself in for an exhilarating, crazed, sometimes terrifying,
usually bloody funny ride through one man's adventures in the oil trade.
When not getting into trouble on the rigs Paul lives a quiet life in
