Oil output is forecast to continue to rise over the next few years, although it is affected by economic conditions. There has also been a reduction in the number of significant new oilfield discoveries and an increased cost of extracting the remaining oil from established fields, which adds pressures to the industry. Career development opportunities are promising, as many companies are recruiting an increasing amount of new graduate engineers with the aim of promoting those who show the most potential.

Many first appointments are in the field and require people who are physically fit and geographically mobile. This means not only being prepared to go anywhere in the world, but also being able to stay in that location for the duration of the project. If you are unable to relocate, your chances of securing a job or subsequent promotions will be reduced. On completion of a training programme, graduates may progress from primarily technical roles, through the promotion structure, to highly regarded and well-paid senior technical appointments.
