The oil and gas industry has generally been insular and academically dominated by Chemical Engineering. However the oil industry has many problems that are traditionally handled by industrial engineers, and there is significant opportunity for Industrial Engineering to expand as a more commonly seen discipline within the industry.  In this talk we will discuss two common issues dealt with in oil and gas that many industrial engineers are familiar with, and then discuss some spins on those issues that are unique to the oil and gas industry.
