The speakers; Claude Heffner, Dean Olsen, and Rod Sheere, were a priceless opportunity in my eyes. Each of them had their specialty that they discussed with us, and having someone who works in he Oil and Gas field about their knowledge along with the opportunity for questions was greatly beneficial to me. Dean from CNRL discussed his safety job that he does on a daily basis. Now we all had somewhat of an understanding how huge the safety factor in the Oil and Gas industry, but seeing his binders of rules and regulations was definitely an eye opener. He definitely shared great information and was easy to listen to and understand. Claude’s drawing on the board of a battery was super, that drawing and explanation put my puzzle pieces of the Batteries that we learned in the courses so far into a full picture. The fact that Claude worked at getting us permission and tour guides to the Cactus Lake Battery was unquestionably one of the greatest experiences that we could ask for!!
Our field trip to Cactus Lake Battery was unquestionably my favorite so far! Even though we had touched on how batteries run, as well as Claude’s fantastic job explaining it, getting to go into the actual buildings and getting an explanation of each aspect from start to finish on how a battery runs was incomparable. I don’t fully understand all the filter and gadgets on how they separated and work to get the oil to where it needs to be, I am way farther ahead than I was before. I think the rest will come with time and experience out in the real working world.
This course was well executed and planned out in my opinion. Even though things were changed and added throughout, everything and everyday was beneficial and appreciated. The Oil and Gas Industry is huge and it is hard to understand it all, but this course has put me on a great path of understanding and has made me even more excited to venture out in the work force. A little nervous but excited non-the-less! I will succeed and do great, with the majority of the credit going to this fabulous class of broad knowledge of the Lloydminster Oil and Gas Industry!
