Pumper - Gauger Jobs In Oil Production
Above, a University Of Texas showing oil tanks, separators, well head, etc.
The above illustration shows some of the types of equipment that oil production employees deal with. In the lower left hand corner is an illustration of the wellhead, where oil or natural gas flows out of the well bore under it's own pressure. If the pressure his not high enough to force oil or gas from the ground, a pumpjack will need to be installed. Oil production employees are responsible for maintaining all of this equipment.
The tanks in the upper right are oil and water tanks. There will typically be a water tank, where produced salt water is collected to be hauled away and oil tanks that store oil which will be picked up by trucks and sold. The job of an oil production employee such as a pumper or gauger is to make sure the quality of this oil is good and meets the standards required by the purchasing company. Otherwise the oil will be refused by the truck driver and there may be a charge for the trip.
Other equipment found on an oil lease includes separators and heater treaters, both of which separate oil, gas and water from each other so that the oil and gas can be sold and the water disposed of. These complex systems require that oil production employees train for a long period of time, often working as an assistant pumper or gauger. The same type of equimpent seen above is also found offshore, though the components are arranged differently on an offshore platform and oil is sent by pipeline to market.
