Geological and Petroleum Technicians

Geological and petroleum technicians provide support to scientists and engineers in exploring and extracting natural resources, such as minerals, oil, and natural gas. Show Details


Geological and petroleum technicians typically do the following:

  • Compile information from reports, computer databases, and other sources for use in looking for natural resources (geological prospecting)
  • Install and maintain laboratory and field equipment
  • Gather geological data and samples such as rocks and soils in the field and prepare samples for laboratory analysis
  • Conduct scientific tests on samples to determine their content and characteristics
  • Prepare notes, sketches, and maps to display geological characteristics of the land
  • Monitor well exploration and drilling activities
  • Prepare reports and presentations that document their investigation and findings

In the field, geological and petroleum technicians use sophisticated equipment such as seismic instruments and gravity-measuring devices to gather geological data. They also use handtools to collect samples of rocks and other materials for scientific analysis.

Geological and petroleum technicians use computers and laboratory equipment to analyze data and samples collected in the field. They also use mapping software and geographic information systems (GIS) to catalog and plot data. With the results of their analysis, they can evaluate a site to gauge its potential for further exploration and development or they can monitor quality at an existing production site.

Geological and petroleum technicians often work on geological prospecting and surveying teams under the supervision of scientists and engineers who evaluate their work for accuracy and determine whether the site should be further explored. In addition, they might work with scientists and technicians in other fields. For example, geological and petroleum technicians might work with environmental scientists and technicians to monitor the environmental impact of drilling and other activities.

Oil and Gas Workers

Oil and gas workers carry out the plans for drilling that petroleum engineers have designed. Drilling workers operate the equipment that drills the well through the soil and rock formation, and they prepare the well for use. Service workers then finish preparing the well and assemble the equipment that removes the oil or gas from the well. Show Details


Oil and gas workers include roustabouts, derrick operators, service unit operators, and rotary drill operators.

Roustabouts typically do the following:

  • Clean equipment and keep the work area orderly and free of debris
  • Use electronic detectors and make visual inspections in flow lines to locate leaks
  • Use truck winches and motorized lifts to move pipes to and from trucks or move the pipes by hand
  • Dismantle and repair oil field machinery, boilers, and steam engine parts
  • Guide cranes that move loads
  • Attach lifting slings to loads moved by cranes or by other special equipment, such as gin-pole trucks

Derrick operators typically do the following:

  • Inspect derricks, or order their inspection, before they are raised or lowered
  • Make sure the drilling fluid continues to flow correctly
  • Repair pumps and other equipment related to the drilling fluid system
  • Ensure that rig pumps and other drilling systems are working properly
  • Use harnesses and platform climbing devices to position and align derrick elements
  • Supervise crew members and help train them
  • Guide lengths of pipe into and out of elevators
  • Help maintain other rig equipment

Service unit operators typically do the following:

  • Maintain wells by removing tubes or rods from the hole that is drilled into the ground
  • Observe load variations on gauges, pumps, and pressure indicators
  • Inspect engines, rotary chains, and other equipment to detect faulty operations or unusual equipment conditions
  • Drive truck-mounted units to well sites
  • Install pressure-control devices onto wellheads
  • Thread cables through derrick pulleys
  • Operate pumps that circulate water, oil, or other fluids through wells to remove sand or other materials obstructing the free flow of oil
  • Operate controls that raise derricks or level rigs

Rotary drill operators, also known as drillers, typically do the following:

  • Oversee maintenance of the drill rig and implementation of the well plan
  • Train crews and introduce procedures to make operations safe and effective
  • Observe pressure gauges and move throttles and levers, both to control the speed of rotary tables and to regulate the pressure of tools at the bottoms of drill holes
  • Observe gauges that monitor well flow to prevent an overflow
  • Keep records of footage drilled, locations and the nature of layers drilled, materials and drilling tools used, services performed, and time required
  • Start and examine pump operations to ensure circulation and consistency of drilling fluids or mud in wells
  • Use special tools to locate and recover lost or broken bits, casings, and drill pipes from wells

Rotary drilling crews do most of the work in oil fields. Most workers involved in gas processing are known as operators.

Additional occupations on drilling crews are as follows:

Engine operators are in charge of engines that provide the power for well site operations. They also do general maintenance of the engines and keep the rig equipment lubricated.

Pumpers operate and maintain the equipment that regulates the flow of oil out of the well.

Gas treaters oversee automatic treating units that remove water and other impurities from natural gas.

Gas-pumping-station operators tend compressors that raise the pressure of gas to send it through pipelines.

Gas-compressor operators often assist gas treaters and gas-pumping-station operators.
