Massiel Diez, also known as “Oilfield Girl” by her global online following, is co-host of Flipping the Barrel Podcast.


By documenting her nontraditional career on Instagram and YouTube as a fresh chemical engineering grad from McGill University, the then-Schlumberger Wireline Field Engineer quickly rose to virtual stardom, sharing her passion for the industry and encouraging young girls to explore oil and gas careers.
