Petro hunt resumes, Petro oil jobs, petro jobs, drilling jobs

Daily job hunt: Petro oil and gas drilling jobs are being sought in Texas, Texas Tech University and several other Texas-based firms.
And the jobs include everything from building pipelines to driving drill rigs.
In a recent story in the Houston Chronicle, the Texas Tech graduate student who helped launch the search was quoted as saying, “I think that it will help people get jobs.”
It’s a move that many Texas companies hope will boost demand for their oil.
The company said the openings were being posted in the area that’s home to a number of oil and natural gas fields, such as the Marcellus Shale, the Eagle Ford and the Permian Basin.
The industry has been suffering from high costs due to drilling and other resource extraction, and the industry’s downturn has been attributed in part to a spike in earthquakes and a lack of natural gas and oil supplies.
“As oil production continues to increase, the cost of exploration and production continues an unsustainable pattern that threatens to put us in a crisis,” the company said in a statement.
