Production Engineering

The real life alchemists of the 21st century.

Production engineering is another specialised field within petroleum engineering, focusing on the equipment and processes used to refine the oil into a usable form. Production engineering is used for the daily production of oil; unlike reservoir engineering which has applies long-term views for oil extraction. It is potentially more dangerous due to being located on rigs and near hazards. This job is specifically on-site with some supervision of machinery and staff working in the process.
