Documentation of internship at Drilco, Inc., Houston, Texas and Fluor Engineers & Constructors, Houston, Texas: an internship report
MetadataShow full item record
The first internship was conducted at the firm of Drilco, Inc. The primary engineering objective of the internship was to conduct a metrication impact study for the firm; this study was the basis for a report detailing the future metrication activites [sic] expected in the oil industry and how the firm can best meet these situations. Non-engineering objectives for this internship were also established. Investigations were conducted to determine the methods employed in the labor relations programs of the firm, methods used to conduct public relations campaigns, and how OSHA and EPA had impacted the firm. Additionally, arrangements were made to monitor a major management meeting. The second internship was conducted at Fluor Engineers and Constructors, Inc., where three majaor engineering problems and one major non-engineering problem were addressed. Successful studies were conducted in updating two instrumentation standards, in designing an Emergency Shutdown System for a unique gas compressor, and in establishing the power requirements for the instrumentation at a gas processing plant. As a non-engineering assignment, all purchase orders and requisitions dealing with instruments for an Aramco gas plant were monitored to insure that the needed material would arrive at the jobsite when needed...
