I am currently working an equal 28 day rotation on an underbalanced, coiled tubing drilling rig based in Algeria, we are sidetracking existing wells.
I have experience in MWD (including tools). Down Hole Tools and Mud motors, the tools and equipment that we are using are quite rare in slim hole such as this, I produced a presentation for our client.

My current responsibilities include MWD Logging/Surveying, Troubleshooting, repairing and maintaining both the Orienter (Bakke) and steering package (RSS), connecting our BHA to the coiled tubing, connecting and deploying lower BHA’s.
