Fee Range: E

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 reason.

Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote regions, not to mention some of the roughest drilling rigs on the planet. Paul Carter has worked, gotten into trouble and been given serious talking's to in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia, as exotic as Sumatra, Vietnam and Thailand, and as flat out dangerous as Afghanistan, Russia, and Nigeria. Paul survived all this with his crew, some of the maddest, baddest, and strangest people you could hope not to meet. Twenty years in the making, this story teller has two international best selling books about his remarkable career and he is currently working on a third. Last year he was published again as a contributor in "Your Mother Would Be Proud" a collection of scandalous tales of mayhem, mischief & misadventure from a talented group of Australian writers, actors, and musicians all the proceeds of which are being donated to charity.

Paul Carter has been working in the oil exploration industry since he was eighteen years old, Paul and his crew have completed drilling campaigns in some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous places. In that time he has accumulated a wealth of hilarious and often terrifying stories. He is the author of two best selling books and is currently working on his third. Today he lives in Perth with his wife, daughter, geriatric, deaf, cat Oswald and three motorcycles. But who knows where he'll be tomorrow . . .
