Despite recent developments in the energy market such as biofuels and ethanol, petroleum is still by far the biggest player in the energy market. Due to rising oil demand, from countries such as India and China, crude oil industry jobs are on the rise. Now may be a good time for you to look for oil and gas jobs.

There are many different crude oil industry jobs available. These cover the various sectors of the petroleum industry such as entry-level jobs, drilling, management, administration, medical, marketing and the like. The oil industry is normally divided into three general sections: Upstream, midstream and downstream.

Upstream Section: Includes exploration, drilling and extraction of crude oil from reservoirs. Typical jobs in this section are geophysicist, drilling engineer and production engineer.

Midstream Section: Includes transportation of crude oil via tankers and pipelines from the oil fields to the refineries and the refining of crude oil. Typical jobs on pipelines can be oil pipeliner, pipeline walker and pipeline welder. Refinery jobs may include chemical engineer, process engineer and pump system operator.

Downstream Section: Includes the marketing and sales of petroleum products to the public.

You can probably find a job on land or on an oil rig. Offshore oil rigs are structures used to house the various drilling equipment and facilities for the rigworkers. These facilities include sleeping quarters, dining room and offices.

The recruitment process for crude oil industry jobs is normally more hands on than traditional job interviews. Applicants may be given tasks to solve under the supervision of a supervisor. This helps the supervisor to get a better picture of the knowledge, behavior and motivation of each applicant.

If you are new to the petroleum industry, you would do well to increase your knowledge about it. You can find information about the different sections and operations of the petroleum industry by doing research at a library or on the world wide web. This might also enlighten you about all the different crude oil industry jobs in the world.

Crude oil industry jobs are normally physical demanding and may require you to travel to remote parts of the world. There you will need to work for months at a time. However, it can also be an adventurous and rewarding career.
