E&P Salary Report Matches Growing Stability In Industry

The oil and gas industry is making a strong recovery from the downturn and an indication of the bounce back is the uptick in salaries, according to CSI Recruiting’s 2018 E&P Salary Report.

The salaries, particularly for engineers, are not quite as strong as they once were, but CSI Recruiting’s president, Jeff Bush, said the numbers are moving in the right direction. CSI Recruiting polled 2,900 professionals in the U.S. who are currently employed in full-time, salaried positions within E&P operators.

For the skill sets of reservoir engineers, drilling engineers, production/operations engineers and engineering technicians/analysts, the overall average salaries improved from 2017 in all but drilling engineers.
