The upstream activities for oil & gas jobs includes exploration, production and basic processing of crude oil and natural gas. Exploration is considered to be the main axis of activities for finding new sources of oil and gas and is a firm backing of production. Finding the source and extracting oil are the primary function of the industry. These activities are executed by contractors working in the support activities for mining sub sector. While, some of the activities are undertaken by the companies itself.
The increase in demand for crude oil and gas in local and global economies has resulted in advancements in methods of exploration, drilling, extraction, processing and refinement. Using different methods, crew of qualified workers search for geologic formations and exploration are carried out onshore or offshore. There is tremendous pressure in the segment to find and get at new oil reserves that can quench the world's thirst for oil. Supply is shrinking in large part because former third world countries, like India and China, have huge needs for oil to feed their growing industries.
Oil & Gas Industry is looking forward to deploy innovative technologies to locate and extract oil. This has resulted significant rise in demand for petroleum engineers and geo-scientists worldwide .
It takes significant training and education to work in specialized areas of exploration & extraction such as engineering, seismic testing, drilling, operation of service rigs, etc.
