There are jobs that you don’t always immediately think about, such as excavating or handling construction materials like gravel,” Eadon said.

“There’s a lot of trucking involved. There are also jobs with environmental companies that conduct environmental studies of the surface and underground associated with creating a well pad site, as well as being involved throughout the process.”Then more details visit here Alberta Oil careers.
