How to Enter
The job of an Environmental Engineer requires expert-level knowledge of theoretical and technical engineering. For that reason, New Zealand Oil & Gas employers look for candidates who possess either a Bachelor of Engineering or a Bachelor of Engineering Technology, specialising in Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering.
New Zealand employers often prefer Environmental Engineering candidates to have the following personal requirements:
- Highly accurate with a great attention to detail
- Pragmatic problem-solver
- Great communicator
- Can work as part of a team and under pressure to meet deadlines
As an Environmental Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry, you can expect to do some or all of the following:
- Taking samples at oil platforms and other development sites to be sent away for testing
- Reporting on the potential impact proposed oil and gas construction and development projects could have on the environment
- Managing engineering projects from start to finish
- Advising on how to treat environmental pollution
After a few years’ experience, Environmental Engineers can specialise in areas such as Project Management, Construction Management, Health & Safety, Planning, Estimation and Environmental Science. Alternatively, following additional training and on-the-job experience, Engineers could progress into managerial roles or work as self-employed contractors.
