I think the day rate can go about 50% more. I have known some Senior Geologist, Senior Completion Engineer, Drilling Supervisor who made $3000/day.

I know a guy who is a senior specialist of drilling equipment and specialized in BOP. He said that when the BP Macondo incident happened back in 2010 and he was a consultant, BP called him out to the area to work with the team to try to stop the spill, they paid him $500 per hour for his service. He said that within few weeks of working on that incident, he made the money of almost his annual salary.
