Oils Petroleum Wholesale
The types of employees that a oil and petroleum wholesale company hires often depends on the types of products that they sell and their levels of involvement with exploration, extraction, and refining. Those that drill for crude oil and natural gas need a wider variety of employees than those that simply sell bulk orders of the products to other companies.
Any company involved in offshore drilling will need well trained engineers that can develop safe ways to tap into reserves located under the ocean bed. In fact, they will need several types of engineers that can work together on mechanical, electrical and structural systems. In addition to drilling methods, this industry also relies on engineers to build pipes that can move thousands of barrels from one place to another. This allows the distributor to move oil and gas from tankers and reserves to refining plants.
If the wholesale company refines crude oil into fuels such as diesel and unleaded gasoline, then they also need engineers that are familiar with the chemical compositions of these fuels. A small mistake could mean that the fuel cannot properly power the motors in automobiles, generators, and airplanes. They, therefore, need to make sure that they produce energy in a useful form.
The sales staff that works for an oil and gasoline wholesale distributor needs to target potential clients that will want to purchase large orders of petroleum-based solvents, lubricating products, and motor fuels. They might, for instance, contact gas stations and offer them discounted prices on their products. In order to do their jobs well, they need to know about all of the options that the refinery produces.
