Much is said and written about Analysis for Oil and Gas. There are no general guidelines or ‘rules’ to follow when conducting this assessment.
The first thing you need to do is make a note of your analytical chemistry skills. While your chemistry skills may be sufficient, it is often a good idea to check with a more experienced person. Doing so will help increase your confidence levels in your ability to get the job done.
You will also need to remember that oil companies are always looking for more people with better analytical skills. They want to keep improving their methods, equipment and materials so they can get the best possible results with each project. Since oil projects are unique, it may be a good idea to get some reference information on the job. This will help you focus your thoughts on the project and on the oil field as a whole.
Often times, especially with oil field production, it is a good idea to first develop a routine that you perform each day. This will help you stay focused on your goal and on the work at hand. If you can get through your day without too much hassle, that will be helpful in avoiding distractions.
If you have any extra time after a project has started, you should work on your focus. Find ways to focus on specific things that you need to do in order to get your project completed. These could include problem solving, journaling, sketching, reviewing your notes, planning your next steps, etc.
It may be helpful to use a checklist when analyzing the oil field. One such checklist can be found in the Analysis for Oil and Gas eBook.
An important aspect to consider is how your working environment affects your ability to focus. Is your environment distracting? In other words, are your working environments impacting your performance?
In many cases, a new analyst does not know about personal behavior. Learning how others can affect you is an important first step.
