Sector overview

Energy is one of the most visible and dynamic industries in the world. The sector is truly global and is segmented into Upstream (Exploration & Production), Midstream (Storage & Transportation) and Downstream (Refining & Marketing). Oilfield services are also an integral part of the value chain. 

Some of the world’s largest corporations are fully integrated Oil and Gas companies and Oilfield services organisations developing reserves and technologies on a global scale.

Key Recruiting Challenges

  • Insufficient talent has entered into this sector industry during the past years. The workforce has matured and continues to, creating severe skills shortages.
  • Oil and gas projects have become so large scale and risky, especially into offshore and ultra-deep waters. The industry is seeing more joint ventures projects between competitors. This requires a very specific type of talent
  • The NOC (National Oil Companies) are becoming very powerful and more global in their thinking. This will have an impact on the senior talent needs in the industry.
