Process Technician / Process Operator

Be at the center of it all.

How do the folks at headquarters know if all the pumps are pumping, pipelines are flowing and other complex, inter-connected stuff at an oilfield is working properly? They ask you. Monitors the daily operation of wells and related equipment, such as pumping units, tanks, compressors and valves while maintaining a safe work environment. Requires an associate degree, available through University of Alaska. But this is one of the best ways to score a high-paying job in the oil and gas industry right out of school. Also, it’s usually an indoor position. Double score.
