    Hello guys, I've always been curious if there are any Petroleum Engineers - be it Reservoir Engineer, Drilling Engineer, Production Engineer, Facilities Engineer or any other Oil and Gas related jobs..Petroleum Economists etc around on RJ..i'm pretty sure there are but just haven't come across any yet..would love to hear from you and if you don't mind..share what you're working on, which particular field/reservoir you're overlooking..

    I'm a recent graduate and have started working as a Reservoir Engineer here in Kuala Lumpur a few months this point, i'm familiarizing myself with the various simulators used for material balance, well test analysis and reservoir dynamic simulation..quite frustrating sometimes not being able to fully operate the simulator on my own, I guess it'll be much more interesting later on when I get a grip on the softwares..

    I also wondered if I was the only gay in my school back at my opinion it's a predominantly 'straight' career path..I'm quite sure I was the only gay in my class..gotten to know a couple of gay Reservoir Engineers in the company i'm working with..and finally have some people to relate to icon_razz.gif

    You are getting into big oil? Try engineering some solar panels and windmills. I'm not trying to be a bitch-- but start your career off in an industry that's going to take off, rather than one that's going to die. Green energy all the way... there's no resisting it...

    My 2 cents.

    The economy fails without petroleum engineers.

    Taking off? Hardly. Regrettably, green energy has played the same marginal role in the economy for years, and will probably continue to until the much dreaded end of big oil, natural gas, and coal. Sad, but true. Stop being so critical of people and their professions, you shouldn't be after the engineers making a living trying to make sure massive business operations are not as destructive and uneducated as they could be. If you care enough about the issue to criticize its players, you should be doing something to help remake the terrible energy policies that got us where we are instead. I am not trying to be disrespectful, it just irked me that the only two responses on this forum were so... eh... critical of something that is very clearly not well understood, but very widely misunderstood.
