Global Oil and Gas Workforce Survey Highlights Worldwide Optimism in Energy Jobs

They say confidence breeds confidence and despite political, financial and environmental obstacles worldwide, the global oil and gas industry continues to gain momentum.

With 2012 set to be an exciting year, Air Energi and’s latest Global Oil and Gas Workforce Survey, provides the clearest indication yet of why this year looks to be one where confidence not only returns but swells:


A massive natural gas find in Mozambique could see it replicate the potential of Angola, Nigeria and Ghana – security concerns remain but super majors’ acceptance of ‘risk for reward’ of may well prevail.


Project activity is booming in the Americas, from the tip of Alaska to the tail of Argentina. While regions around the globe have grabbed the LNG spotlight in recent months, but Latin America is not far behind.


2012 promises to be a record-breaker in Asia Pacific once again with Asian economies expected to represent half the world’s growth over the next five years and 75 per cent of the global increase in energy demand.


Australia’s labour crunch tightened with the go-ahead of the Ichthys LNG project in January – the $34 billion development will require an estimated 4,000 construction workers once in full swing. Australia is creating solutions to remain competitive.


NOCs are wading carefully into offshore developments, remaining safely within national boundaries and avoiding any potential geopolitical upset.


While Scandinavia and the UK are near to booming and mainland Europe remains cautious given the potentially calamitous economic uncertainties, the region remains a centre of excellence for the industry.


With expats outnumbering locals 9:1, employers continue to offer some of the world’s most competitive day rates and attractive incentive packages. Industry has only slowed somewhat in Syria and Egypt due to the civil unrest but other Middle Eastern countries remain largely unaffected.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important. is my blog.

    I disagree with Malcom entirely. I think it’s a bit disrespectful to expect people to work for you for free on the chance that they might get hired afterward. You are getting weeks worth of material from these writers and not a single one of them is on the payroll. It’s also a given that only one (of over a dozen candidates) will be chosen, so the chances that any one writer gets picked for the job is actually pretty low, making it pretty unlikely that their free work is going to pay off for them.

    Thanks for your comment on this post. Always remember that unpaid work benefits both the employer and the employee – from the employee perspective if you produce excellent work you will be recognised and the employer would be keen to work with you again – probably on a paid basis, it is also a great way to boost your portfolio and gain vital experience.

    Thanks for reading,
