Are oil and gas jobs coming back?
So, it seems that the price of oil has stabilized for quite a while now at over $60 Bbl. We've seen in the news about some oil companies posting large profit increases. The US onshore market has stayed busy all through the crash, but me and some mates have really suffered these past couple of years. We're expat consultants and haven't benefited from the stability in Texas or some of the Middle Eastern countries.
So, my question is: Are oil and gas jobs coming back?
If so, how long until everyone feels the benefit of an industry upturn? I know that these questions are difficult to answer, and it will be geographically based. I'd still appreciate any input from the community. This does seem like an important topic!
