5 5 Power Engineers are expected to be in high demand in the next few years. One study reported that between 2006 and 2020, over 5,000 new plant and facility operators will be needed in the oil sands. Recently, there have been as many as 80 job postings for process operators and power engineers, so there is great opportunity in Wood Buffalo for this occupation.

6 6 Job Titles Requiring Power Engineering Certification Refinery/upgrader Process Operator SAGD Operator Gas plant operator Oil and gas pipeline operator Jobs in Fort McMurray are generally related to mineral and hydrocarbon processing in the oil sand industry

7 7 There are two levels of power engineers in Fort McMurray: field operators and control room operators. “Primarily when someone is starting out, they’re in the field,” “After a few years they can progress to being a board or control room operator - kind of like the team lead. They direct the field people to perform tasks beyond the control of the DCS - turning valves, adjusting an instrument to control temperature, pressure, flow, or level.”
