what are oil and gas facilities function?

what are oil and gas facilities function? there are many oil and gas facilities classification available. Some people classifying mechanical facilities into 2 large groups. Number one is Fixed equipment and the second is rotating equipment. According to this classification, mechanical engineer work in oil and gas company, sometime divided into 2 large group i.e mechanical engineer – fixed equipment and mechanical engineer – rotating equipment. Mechanical engineer- fixed equipment job is maintain the fixed equipment integrity, make sure the fixed equipment can be operated safely. these group also called as asset integrity engineer or mechanical integrity engineer. in opposite,[…]

Competition for Facility Engineer

Facility Engineer (FE) is job family for a large group of engineer handling surface equipment in Oil and Gas Industry. In this group, we have some job titles that self explanatory such as FE-Mechanical, FE-Process, FE-Asset Integrity, FE-Reliability, FE-Project , FE-Corrosion etc. If you hold a bachelor degree of mechanical engineering, you have good opportunity to apply these roles. FE-Corrosion for example, they will monitor corrosion occurred in all facilities and then propose some solution programs to control it. The program is called effective if the cost for controlling corrosion is much cheaper than damage cost and cost of production[…]
