LONDON – Oil & Gas UK, OPITO, and the UK’s Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) have commissioned EY to “map” the UKupstream oil and gas labor market.

The aim is to provide comprehensive data for the first time on the workforce and to provide an insight into the sector’s current employment profile and future needs.

Data for the report will be compiled through analysis of existing information and via interviews with organizations in 32 sub-sectors of the upstream oil and gas supply chain.

Oil & Gas UK’s business development director Stephen Marcos Jones said: “We aim not only to provide more accuracy around the number of jobs supported by the industry, but to identify what skills our people have, where they are based and how we might need to develop them to promote our advantage in the oil and gas sector.”
