Global Oil and Gas Workforce Survey H2 2011

July 2011 – Introduction

Air Energi and would like to thank all organisations and participants who took the time to respond to and influence our H2 2011 survey and report. The returns clearly show a substantial response from decision makers and industry insiders across all the oil and gas producing regions.

We are pleased to present the findings in this report for our industry partners to utilse in their future decision making.

  • 13,000 + oil and gas professionals were invited to participate
  • 5,500 + were either direct recruiters or senior decision makers
  • Over 45 countries represented in 7 major oil and gas producing regions



We are delighted to work with Air Energi once again to produce this second, mid-year edition of the Workforce Survey. The global oil and gas industry continues to experience something of a rollercoaster journey – not just in terms of fluctuating oil and gas prices, but also with regard to political unrest and natural disasters – all of this impacting on hiring trends.  This latest report does reflect that the guarded optimism experienced across the industry in 2010 is set to continue as worldwide investment is ramped up across the remainder of 2011.

Mark Guest
Managing Director
