Decent company to work for. Sometimes it is too fast paced.
Reservoir Engineering Advisor (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – January 27, 2018
Working in multidisciplinary environment with engineers and geoscientists. Learning new technical skills. Ability to see my projects come to fruition. Workplace culture is friendly and collaborative. Sometimes there are too many firedrills, that are very distractive to technical groups. and being able to apply my managerial skills The hardest and at the same time the most enjoyable part of my job are the people I work with
Lots of compositional modeling using GEM for a project in Oman which was completely uneconomic. Any smart graduate would be able to confirm this statement. Project was actual abandoned after I left. Advised extensively on collection of PVT data and experiments. Same for special core analysis.
This was my first Oil and Gas industry job. I learned about oil and gas while working here. Management was great on getting me up to speed with job role, everyone on my team was eager to share their knowledge and experiences. I really enjoyed working with people from all across the globe.
If you like being a cog in the machine with average pay, Oxy is the place for you. Oxy offers decent benefits and just enough money to keep you from looking elsewhere. Although I will say I have had excellent opportunities to learn new skills.
