Do Petroleum Engineers enjoy their job in Jakarta Indonesia?
Depends upon which Petroleum Engineering sub-discipline one pursues. There are 3 sub-disciplines, Drilling Engineer, Production Engineer, and Reservoir Engineer. A Drilling Engineer, as the name would imply, is tasked with the drilling of well meant to produce oil or gas. They generally work both in an office and out in the field at well sites. A Production Engineer is tasked with getting the well to produce oil and gas after it is drilled and later to economically keep the well flowing making oil or gas. They generally work both in an office and out in the field at well sites. A Reservoir Engineer works in concert with Geoscientists (geologist, geophysicist, petro physicist) to locate reserves of oil and gas an quantify the value of the oil and gas. After the well is producing the Reservoir Engineer will keep track of how much of the reserve has been produced along with how much there is left to produce from the reservoir. Reservoir Engineers generally work just in an office.
As for what it's like. Imagine a job where everything you do is done through a 5-1/2" pipe 2-miles long. Unlike other engineering disciplines such as civil, mechanical, etc. the Petroleum Engineer can never see what they are doing with a well.
