The Oil and Gas Exploration and Production program of study focuses on processing, refining, and distributing petroleum and gas. It introduces CTE learners to the process of regulating the flow of oil into pipelines, controlling pumping systems, and operating and maintaining machinery to generate electric power. Successful completion of the Oil and Gas Exploration and Production program of study will fulfill requirements of the Business and Industry Endorsement or STEM endorsement if math and science requirements are met.
The Midland College Energy Technology program prepares students for careers as lease operators and general field technicians within the oil and gas industry. Other career paths may require students to perform different functions as members of an oil and/or gas production team. Coursework will range from basic mechanical aptitude to more highly specialized technical classes.
