Saudi Arabia holds the title as the world's largest producer and exporter of total petroleum liquids, and the country's national corporation, Saudi Aramco retains the most proven reserves and production of hydrocarbons worldwide. Only behind Russia as the largest crude oil producer, Saudi Arabia has an estimated 267 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, including 2.5 billion in the Saudi-Kuwaiti Neutral Zone, and 253 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven natural gas reserves. Impressively, more than half of Saudi Arabia's oil reserves are sourced from only eight fields.
Design engineers focus on applying the engineering design process, whereby they develop new or improved products or processes. They are required for projects that are onshore and offshore, upstream and downstream, and can specialize in multiple engineering disciplines including electrical, chemical, mechanical, civil and structural. Design engineers typically complete technical plans using computer-aided design (CAD) software, conduct testing by collecting and analyzing data, and complete regular progress reports for project managers.
