If my mission is to learn as much as possible about the world, to study broadly if not deeply, then the oil field is a good place for me. Programmable Logic Controllers are the new monitoring devices installed to measure flow and pressure and temperature. Computer Savvy folks like the person I pretended to be at the interview are given the task of installing and maintaining these devices. But as long as I accept no conservative measures will save humanity from our fate then the details of PLC and SCADA and pressure and flow are more trivia to gnaw on as though life were a giant video game. I wonder how this was accomplished 30 years ago but it makes no difference. Certain methods are better buried with the dinosaurs. Oil men have short memories and move ever forward.
