About Oil Field

Oil Field Jobs Overview

The oil industry provides a leading source of energy to consumers. Without oil, millions of people across the U.S. wouldn’t be able to heat their homes or drive their cars. Oil industry workers help to make that happen. They’re responsible for extracting and refining oil and ensuring that facilities are kept safe and in compliance with state and federal regulations. There are several different types of blue-collar oil field jobs available to candidates with at least a high school diploma and some experience.

You might want to choose a job in the oil industry if you enjoy working with your hands and prefer not to work in an office. In oil field jobs, you may develop plans for drilling, extracting, and refining oil. You may also oversee the oil wells after drilling is completed or ensure that machinery and equipment are in proper working order.

Expand your search for extraction jobs by considering these similar positions:

Oil Field Worker Training and Skills

The educational and training requirements for oil field jobs vary by job type. For example, oil rig workers and other blue-collar oil field employees must have a high school diploma and be at least 18 years old. Most oil field employers prefer to hire candidates who have oil rig training and certification that covers OSHA regulations, safety practices, pipe laying and winching. There are several institutions around the U.S. that offer oil field training.

Petroleum engineers must have at least a bachelor’s degree in engineering or a related field that includes lab work and field studies in engineering, geology, and thermodynamics. While not required, having a Professional Engineer (PE) license can help boost your skills and give you an advantage over the competition.

When hiring oil field workers, employers look for candidates with:

  • Strong analytical skills and the ability to make sense of technical information.
  • The ability to communicate with team members, supervisors, and customers.
  • Exceptional mathematics skills.
  • The ability to solve problems and prevent potential risks.
  • Keen attention to detail.
