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.

  Houston, Texas – August 18 2020 – Rig Lynx, a specialized social network and provider of oil and gas online networking solutions announced today a partnership with Intercontinental Des Services (ICS), a labor contracting and offshore support company based in Pointe Noire, Republic of Congo. Through this partnership Rig Lynx will provide ICS with their Connected Community concept using the Rig Lynx application and their host of online tools enabling improved communication with their field employees and management of future talent in the industry.   “The oil and gas industry will always be a community-based industry, even more so right now during the COVID-19 pandemic when you need to keep in touch with your field personnel and shore-based employees on one network. C-Suite networking companies do not provide the one on one service that is vitally needed to enable growth in small to mid-size companies. We can now bring your company the same thing that Facebook and LinkedIn can at a reduced cost. We look forward to supporting ICS in the next step of their company and to be a valued business partner with them for many years to come” said Greg Williams, Rig Lynx Founder.    “Small companies should utilize tools that fit their purposes, in an industry that was built on friendship and long term connections we see that the niche networking services that the team at Rig Lynx provide are tailor suited for our needs in reaching market spaces we previously would not have been able to reach in times such as this without raising our cost substantially. It would be a cost increase in an industry that is finding new ways to become more efficient in every business line and we look forward to utilizing this to the fullest” said Bonaface Kaya, President and CEO Intercontinental Des Services.   Rig Lynx allows registered users the ability to connect to a patent pending network of “Open Networkers”, where other networks are restricted through “interests” Rig Lynx does not have this restriction as it is an industry-based application. This enables users to have their newsfeeds filled with content from other members in the same field, craft or region by enabling one function. In May 2020 Rig Lynx released the Job Foundry which is an in-app talent management and resourcing tool that harnesses the features of the application to plan upcoming project needs in regard to personnel.
