Onshore Oil Jobs
Oil and gas engineers work in offices that are usually situated onshore. There, they must spend some 40 hours each week. This is not like working offshore, where the working schedule is usually 12 hours on and 12 hours off for two weeks. The rest of the month, they are being left onshore. The salaries are quite good in this particular field. The work of an oil and gas engineer requires that the person has skills for solving any problem that might occur and work well in a team or being able to lead one. Oil and gas engineers must have a scientific approach to their work and be prepared to work away from home from time to time. These persons must also be responsible and safety-conscious. The most important thing is that they are interested in protecting natural resources and the environment while meeting the demand for oil and gas.

There are many types of employers that may be able to offer jobs in this field. Should it be an operating company or a drilling company, the jobs keep on flowing. There are many other companies that can provide jobs in the oil and gas field. Some of them are engineering consultancies and service companies, for instance the seismic exploration firms or the well service firms.

So, an oil and gas engineer must have a postgraduate qualification, and most of all, he must be rather young of age, as it is very difficult to start working in this field when you are in fact close to 50.

Due to the working conditions, employees at offshore operations generally earn higher wages than workers at onshore oil fields.
