World Petroleum Congress Poll on Energy Careers

Pekka Paasivaara, Member of the GL Executive Board

Delegates at the World Petroleum Congress believe the oil and gas industry is not doing enough to encourage future generations to join the sector, according to research from GL Noble Denton.   Oil and gas industry professionals believe that the sector needs to work harder to encourage future generations to choose a career in energy, according to a poll conducted yesterday at the World Petroleum Congress in Doha. 57% of participants said companies need to make greater efforts to demonstrate the benefits of a career in the oil and gas industry to young people, while 43% disagreed, believing that companies are now making a more conscious attempt to tackle an impending skills shortage.   The Industry Snapshot Poll was conducted by global independent technical advisor GL Noble Denton during the second day of the World Petroleum Congress, which is expected to have attracted more than 12,000 industry professionals from across the world. The poll was also completed online by senior professionals from across the industry.   Pekka Paasivaara, Member of the GL Executive Board, said: “A recent increase in oil and gas industry investment and activity has caused the sector to focus on addressing the industry’s diminishing number of skilled professionals and ageing workforce.
