Valve Technicians install, maintain, inspect, test, dismantle, clean and repair the valves that control the flow of oil and gas fluids. This is an essential job in the oil and gas industry because without valves, oil and gas simply wouldn’t flow.
Environmental Technicians bring the environment back to engineers and scientists in the office. They monitor and test natural habitats to understand, measure and remediate any industry impacts. Not only do they care about the environment, they also want to be part of the solution.
Being a Well Services Labourer is a great place to start in the oil and gas industry. From the onset to the completion of a well, they assist with well service machinery while learning the ropes of the well services world.
Between Wellsite Operators and their wells, you’ll find Well Testing Operators. Looking at everything from wellbore pressure to saline percentages, Well Testing Operators gather the information that helps Operators determine well performance and identify production issues.
Rig Managers are responsible for every aspect of a rig operation, from setup to takedown. They’re responsible for the safety and leadership of their crews. And they’re responsible for all daily paperwork and other business matters. They’re hands-on leaders in the world of oil and gas.
Seismic Labourers are part of a specialized crew responsible for finding geophysical data for oil and gas operations or exploration. They hike mountains and traverse the countryside, then take a peek beneath them to look for oil and gas.
