what is mechanical engineering jobs in oil and gas industry?

what is mechanical engineering? The field of Mechanical Engineering deals with the design of mechanical and thermal systems based on the principles of physics, mathematics and material science. Research activities by lecturers and students in the Mechanical Engineering Study Program include fields: Applied Mechanics, Energy, Materials Engineering and Manufacturing. Research within the Department has a significant impact on society and the scientific community.  In mechanical engineering, we apply the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering from design to manufacturing.  We analyze our work using the principles of motion, energy, and force to make sure that designs function safely, efficiently, and reliably, and of course at a competitive cost. Mechanical engineers may design a component, a machine, a system, or a process. This ranges from the macro to the micro, from the large systems to the small components like instrumentation sensors or switches.   What are Mechanical Engineering Tasks description? in[…]

oil and gas offshore platform

what is a platform? The oil and gas contained in the bowels of the earth turned out to be not only below the land but also below the seabed. To take it, of course, we need an equipment (structure) supporting with advanced technology that can survive the fierce sea waves. Offshore platforms are structures or buildings built offshore to support the exploration or exploitation of oil and gas. Usually, offshore platforms have a drilling rig that functions to analyze the geological properties of the reservoir and to make holes that allow the extraction of petroleum reserves or natural gas from the reservoir. Most of the platforms are located offshore from the continental shelf. With technological advances and rising prices of crude oil, drilling and production in deeper waters have become more feasible and economical. A platform may have about thirty drill bits. Directional drilling allows drill wells to be accessed[…]

How to get Salary increase

Do you want to get the high salary increase? the salary of each employee in a company is different depending on the level or pay salary grade it. in one level of PSG (Pay salary grade), there is usually a salary range from the lower limit to the upper limit. if we are at the lower limit, then we must work well so that our performance can be maximized. this performance will raise our salary to the upper limit in a PSG. Well, if we’ve reached the upper limit, then we should try to ride a higher PSG or we call it a promotion. To get promotion, then we need some way to develop career. we all want a higher career level to achieve all dreams. We must go through these processes in a career. here are some tips for developing a career 1. work passionately If we do not[…]

my first problem as junior mechanical engineer

I still remember when I graduated from Mechanical Engineering and directly facing the real world (petrochemical – oil and gas downstream) and nervous in the face of problems in the field that demanded the requirements of a mechanical engineer in understanding a problem quickly, and sometimes need ingenuity – the able to bridge between the theory of higher education and the world of work. The longer working on the front line maintenance – in terms of troubleshooting – enriches us in understanding the problems of the next process. According to my opinion, troubleshooting problems in the field is often a simple matter, but sometimes it becomes complicated because it does not know where to go start it. This happens because of a failure to understand the problem. Failure will have an impact on the efficacy or not a given solution. From the experience of troubleshooting, I find that almost all[…]
