A recent Hard Hat Hub study of construction and engineering professionals in the power (transmission and distribution) industry found that companies will ramp up hiring in 2014, but many are having trouble finding talent and filling open positions. Nearly 70% of the companies reported experiencing growth in the parts of their businesses that relate to the transmission and distribution of power. The remaining 30% said that their firms, while not hiring today, “may be” before year’s end. Ninety...
The state and Oklahoma County showed some of the strongest wage growth in the nation from June 2012 to June 2013, due primarily to growth in energy sector jobs, according to federal data released Friday. Oklahoma wages in the state grew by 3.5 percent between June 2012 and June 2013, putting the state second in the nation for wage growth behind North Dakota, where wages grew an average of 3.7 percent. Like North Dakota, much of Oklahoma and Oklahoma County's wage growth came from energy sector...
Finding a good-paying, stable job that won’t leave the country tops the priority list for many Americans in these difficult economic times. But for those just graduating from high school or college, it seems harder than ever. Yet high-paying jobs are available right here in New Mexico and across the United States. Careers in energy, including jobs as linemen, power plant operators and engineers, are often overlooked by today’s youths. Gov. Susana Martinez has therefore declared Oct. 14-20...
Growth in unconventional oil and natural gas activity is transforming America’s energy future and strengthening its overall economy in terms of jobs, government revenues, and gross domestic product, according to a recent report from IHS. The report, entitled “America’s New Energy Future: The Unconventional Oil & Gas Revolution & the US Economy, Vol. 3,” extends on the initial analysis to include the full value-chain associated with the unconventional revolution: from drilling and...
Companies operating in the Marcellus and Utica shales say it's been a challenge to fill openings in engineering, geology, environmental health and other professional fields. The Marcellus Shale Coalition, a gas drilling-industry trade group, released a workforce survey Wednesday of more than 100 of its members. The survey indicates that about half of the industry's new hires in 2012 were equipment operators or work in operations and maintenance. Companies say professional and management jobs...
Through the nation's economic peaks and valleys, one constant is our need for energy. And fulfilling that need is a booming business. “Everybody touches energy in some way in their life...even your grandmother: every time she puts gas in her car or turns on the lights,” says Clara Lippert Glenn, CEO of The Oxford Princeton Programme, an energy-oriented training program based in Plainsboro, N.J. Energy is “a universal commodity,” Lippert Glenn explains. As such, the energy industry is a...
By Brad Dunleavy In February 2013, I landed an entry-level floorhand position on an oil well service rig in Alberta, Canada. For months, I had searched job sites for entry-level positions, but the only job postings I ever came across were for senior positions or jobs that required a specialized education, such as engineer. I finally succeeded in landing my entry-level oil rig job after spending $3,000 on a course I found through Kijiji while searching for jobs. The course was described in such...
The US recorded the largest single-year increase in oil production in 2012, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy. The review, released June 12, was the company’s 62nd annual report. With the increase in production, the industry has also seen extraordinary growth in recent years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that nearly 192,000 Americans were employed in oil and gas extraction careers at the end of 2012. That was a jump of nearly 11,000 from 2011, 30,000 since...
Two days after a rosy government report doubled the estimate of how much oil is tucked beneath North Dakota, four men hop out of their vehicles into the soft dusk light atop a rock-strewn hill north of town. They point at the barren, rolling landscape dotted with cattle, an oil well and a pond as a half-mile-long train of oil tank cars silently snakes past in the distance. One is a former hedge fund manager who flew in from Connecticut. Another is a real estate investor who drove his pickup...
Experts say West Virginia's natural gas economy could see nearly six-fold growth by 2035 and revive the state's struggling manufacturing and chemical sectors. While the state's natural gas industry has grown in recent years, driven by development in the Marcellus shale region, American Petroleum Institute executive vice president Marty Durbin says the industry has only just begun scratching the surface. "West Virginia is poised to see a real increase in development in natural gas in the coming...
