New app offers highly focused networking opportunities for personnel in the volatile industry.

The last few years has seen major disruption of the oil and gas industry – leaving thousands out of work and without paychecks. There is no end in sight.

To underscore this point, the CEO of Baker Hughes told colleagues gathered at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition Conference (ADIPEC), “”The new normal is continuous disruption, we need to take out all the inefficiency and instead our industry needs transparency and visibility,” according to a report from CNBC.

To help people find their footing in the midst of this ongoing disruption a multi-discipline drilling team and academic software team have come together and created Rig Lynx, a new platform for oil and gas personnel, is set for its public launch on Friday, December 1. Rig Lynx offers users professional networking opportunities through chat, messaging, and online services. The community ensures relevance by using a special algorithm developed just for this application to assemble posts and shares for each individual member.

While other apps and websites offer professional networking and job search services, Rig Lynx differentiates itself with its exclusive focus on the oil and gas sector. The app will be available for free on iOS and Android devices.
