Can you think how hard in controlling the huge pipeline system that passes from Mtwara to Dar es salaam?

Have you ever asked yourself the trouble in seismic interpretation and get the result that decides where to drill the first well?


1:Stress and disappointment
Some oil and gas jobs can lead to stressing, you might work even night shift because drilling activities should run 24 hours, working long hours in a harsh environment and staying away from your family and loves one, is a great challenge.

Additionally pipeline operators might experience bad time since pipeline can easily leak, and if that pipeline crosses below nearby the cities, the  native remain at risk,

This is the reason pipeline operators and other oil and gas workers must be trained for safety issues in order to protect environments and their lives as a whole.
2:Health problems
Oil and gas workers  do at very risky, for instance, those who work in refineries for a long time can be induced by harmful chemicals. Also working on the land and deep seas(offshore) is very dangerous

Bonus:  if you want to have great understanding on how is threatening us to work into oil and gas industry, consider BP’s  oil

spills 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico in the united state which result in the death of 11 people in the rig floor and result of Chief executive officer of  BP, Mr     Tony Hyward  was forced to resign

Final Words
