Upstream Recruiting Solutions

Upstream Recruiting Done Right

Upstream activities of oil and gas industries are referred to the process of production and exploration. This involves the search of natural gas and crude oil by means of latest technology and machines. This sector is widely known as exploration and production sector. Our company is engaged in providing a complete solution for the employers to recruit skilled and professional staff for this purpose. This process includes searching of petroleum products, drilling of exploratory wells and searching of underground water, oil & gas.

Upstream Descriptions & Job Profiles

Exploration Involves the search for rock formations associated with oil or natural gas deposits and involves geophysical prospecting and/or exploratory drilling.

Well development occurs after exploration has located an economically recoverable field, and involves the construction of one or more wells from the beginning (called spudding) to either abandonment if no hydrocarbons are found, or to well completion if hydrocarbons are found in sufficient quantities.

Production is the process of extracting the hydrocarbons and separating the mixture of liquid hydrocarbons, gas, water, and solids, removing the constituents that are non-sale able, and selling the liquid hydrocarbons and gas. Production sites often handle crude oil from more than one well. Oil is nearly always processed at a refinery; natural gas may be processed to remove impurities either in the field or at a natural gas processing plant.

Site abandonment involves plugging the well(s) and restoring the site when a recently-drilled well lacks the potential to produce economic quantities of oil or gas, or when a production well is no longer economically viable.

Since Oil and Gas is a depleting natural resource, large oil companies are always in the search for greener pastures where they can get more oil. This hunt for ‘black gold’ requires the resources of explorers. It takes significant education and training to work in exploration and drilling specializing in areas such as engineering, seismic testing, drilling, the operation of service rigs, and other equipment manufacture and supply.

Once the drilling team does its work, the construction & development along with the production and Inspection team set up process systems. Crude oil is managed and put to optimum use with minimum waste by using these systems.

In addition to developing new fields, engineers also manage the existing but rapidly declining oil fields. This activity of construction & development is a manpower intensive process and demands a lot of work from engineers as well as skilled manual labor.

After the initial hurdle of construction and development are overcome, pipelines are laid down to transport the crude oil. Pipelines prove to be the most efficient and cost-effective way of getting the oil to the refineries. The construction of these pipelines is a humongous task and involves a lot of investment and more importantly, the manpower of able construction and production Engineers and workers who make this colossal task possible.

Maintenance of these vast network of pipelines is also necessary to ensure that there is no oil spillage and waste due to faults in the pipelines. Losses and damages can be minimized by the QA/QC specialists, Inspectors, Pipeline walkers and preventive maintenance engineers. They keep a vigil over the pipelines to avoid any losses in transportation until the crude oil reaches the refineries for further processing.
