When one of the companies we work with had problems with their direct hydrocarbon indicators, I had to jump to the fore and get to work diagnosing the issue. A direct hydrocarbon indicator is a device that uses seismic waves to locate oil deposits. As you can imagine, it is incredibly important to have these devices functioning at their full capacity. You can’t skimp when you’re acquiring these devices because the companies that use them spend a lot of money trying to find new oil deposits in the ocean and on land. They can potentially lose hundreds of millions of dollars if it doesn’t work.
I work for a company that is sort of a middle man for several oil and gas firms in Asia and they rely on us to source their equipment and provide it in a timely manner.
