Well and Facility Asset Management Professional

About This Career

Well and Facility Asset Management Professionals gather, analyze and report information about company well and facility assets, including operating and non-operating wells (onshore and offshore), and field-based facilities and pipelines.

Employment: This occupation is found in both onshore and offshore environments and is employed in the exploration and production (E&P), oil sands, oil and gas services, and pipeline sectors of the oil and gas industry.
