Ah, so you are a Brazilian! The company I work for is Transocean. If you haven't heard of us I'm sure your brother has; we do a lot of work for Petrobras. I spent 2 1/2 years in Southeast Asia, 2 1/2 years in Europe and have been in the Gulf of Mexico for 5 years. I haven't had the pleasure of working in South America, but I understand the Brazilian government is quite difficult to deal with. They have some rules and regulations that are "unique" in the world market. :green:stile - alpine said:Pete, for wich company do you work for?
My brother is an Engineer, he works for Petrobras, they have an amazing technology for getting oil on the bottom of the ocean
maybe when I graduate I´ll work there too... if I don´t get a job at Ferrari's or Porsche's (or other) factory
I agree: we keep drilling deeper and deeper! There was, incidentally, a small article bringing up the idea that crude oil is a continually produced commodity deep in the Earth's crust. We might not be dealing with a finite -availability product! Food for thought. 8)Pete04222 said:I drill deepwater oil wells for a living and I can tell you we ain't gonna run out anytime soon. One of the largest known oil reserves in the Gulf of Mexico hasn't even begun production yet. As technology progresses, we are able to drill for and produce oil from areas previously unattainable. Survey technology has also increased allowing more accurate discovery of reserves. We're not gonna run out for a long, long time.
Like Andrew said, we're all friends here.stile - alpine said:
