According to Jodie Gillies, HR Director with Vysus Group, the oil and gas industry continues to be a significant force in the global economy even as interest in sustainable practices and renewable energy sources grows.
The oil and gas industry continues to innovate and is based on cutting-edge technology and engineering solutions. This exposure to a wide range of technical challenges helps to develop young professionals’ problem-solving skills and analytical thinking. The industry promotes critical thinking and this technical expertise is highly transferable to emerging industries where technological advancements and the ability to drive them forward are in high demand. Examples include improving drilling techniques and optimizing exploration processes.
A solid foundation of technical expertise, problem-solving skills, and project management abilities that are highly valued in a variety of industries is provided by this industry and the chance to learn from people with a wealth of experience. Additionally, the industry is a great place for aspiring professionals with aspirations of success on a global scale to train because of its adaptability, emphasis on safety, and exposure to different cultures.
One of the best examples is Fiber Optics, which has been around for a while and is thought to be the cornerstone of the world’s communications infrastructure. Fiber optics have been widely used in the oil and gas sector for a long time to monitor pipeline activity and oil well behavior, including pressure variations over time. Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) and distributed temperature sensing (DTS) are widely used in the oil and gas industry to measure temperature, pressure, and strain. Oil and gas companies have embraced fiber optic communication technology as well. By switching from copper cables to optical fibers, they can communicate with shoreline and seafloor equipment at higher bandwidths while also reducing the size and weight of their communication cables.
It is important to recognize that the oil and gas sector continues to have a significant impact on how the world economy is shaped, including how young professionals choose their career paths.
