The demand for energy globally is at its peak. Hence, the Oil & Gas sector is constantly on the lookout for discovering new sources of energy. The upstream Oil & Gas firms are facing the twin challenges of exploring and producing oil in hazardous environments along with boosting production from current sources.
In this scenario, the existing technology needs to be constantly upgraded to accomplish the objectives of the sector. Therefore, innovative thinking and path breaking scientific development is the need of the hour to deliver solutions to several technical contingencies (deeper waters, higher pressure, temperature reservoirs, and challenging locations) impacting the sector.
Against this background, the role of the Engineering Consultant is extremely significant in being a one-stop solution provider to the myriad problems faced by the sector.
The Engineering Consultants should have excellent interpersonal skills because they would be interacting with a cross section of stakeholders - operators, drilling contractors, installation contractors and other suppliers in trying to solve the design and construction issues.
It’s mandatory for them to develop an innate understanding of bottlenecks across the process, and functional requirements for various roles.
They can either enhance their expertise in highly specialized technical skills or upgrade their competencies in the overall project management.
The Engineering Consultants must regularly interface with clients to comprehend their engineering problems, while being proficient in formulating and presenting engineering proposals.
They enter the sector as Graduate Engineers within the small and medium segment, while the key to sustaining and learning would be adaptability and flexibility. During early stages of their career, they get the opportunity to interact with experts from the industry to get trained in the technical nuances, before becoming full-fledged Engineering Consultants.
