Cool Petroleum Info: Students get ready!

Posted: 9/01/2012 5:00:00 AM by AMMA
Filed under: Training-and-Development, Oil-and-gas

Last week we ran across two excellent pieces of information concerning the petroleum industry. After securing the proper permissions, we’re thrilled to be able to share them with you. Check these out if you’re a student, working in the oil and gas industry, or want to brush up on your petroleum trivia.

Petroleum Cheatsheet

Matt Hall has a PhD in sedimentology and 15 years of experience in the hydrocarbon industry. Matt recently taught a course on Petroleum Geoscience at Dalhousie University. We became very interested when we read a post a post he wrote at Agile* mentioning a petroleum cheatsheet.

Working on the principle that it never hurts to ask, we suggested to Matt that he might want to let us feature his cheatsheet on our Careers and Industry Guide. We were thrilled when he agreed. Click here for a full-sized copy.

Oilfield Acronym Glossary

In another example of industry generosity, PPI Technology Services in Houston, Texas has agreed to let us use their very informative Oilfield Acronym Glossary. PPI Tech is an engineering group specialising in upstream, midstream, and downstream oilfield services. Who better to publish this type of glossary?

PPI Tech is committed to keeping the glossary up-to-date so we won’t even try to match them. Here’s what they say about it,

“We regularly update this resource with various oil-related terms (not all of which are acronyms). These terms include acronyms and phrases used across the worldwide oil and gas industry, including regulatory; association; seismic; laboratory; health, safety, and environmental; exploration; production; upstream; midstream; and downstream terms.

We hope you find these helpful. Check back regularly, because we add oilfield acronyms and terms on a weekly or monthly basis.”

Check out the PPI Oilfield Acronym Glossary for yourself.
