Valve Technician

Job Overview

Valves regulate, direct and control the flow of oil and gas fluids… without valves, oil and gas simply wouldn’t flow. Or, it would flow the wrong direction or to the wrong place. A working valve can also shut down the flow altogether, which is important if something is not functioning as it should. You ensure the proper functioning of mechanical regulating and controlling devices such as safety and flow valves, electric meters, gas regulators and thermostats.

Valve technicians are responsible for installing, maintaining, inspecting, testing, dismantling, cleaning and repairing mechanical regulating and controlling devices used to control, direct and measure the flow of oil and gas at the wellhead through gathering lines, pipelines and in plants. This includes equipment such as electric meters, gas regulators, thermostats, safety and flow valves.
