Last week, we launched the Oil Sands Construction, Maintenance and Operations Labour Demand Outlook to 2020 report to provide insight into the longer-term hiring requirements in the oil sands sector. What did we find?
For the first time, the oil sands sector is shifting from a phase of growth and expansion to a phase focused on improving the reliability and performance of existing operations.
The growth of 5,170 operations and 4,700 ongoing maintenance jobs will be offset by a decrease in demand for about 10,305 on-site construction workers.
A shift in Canada’s oil sands sector from growth and expansion to improving the reliability and performance of existing operations will have long-term impacts on the sector’s workforce requirements, according to PetroLMI’s latest labour demand outlook report.
Remember that career planning tool we told you about late last year? The tool that will allow users to assess their skills, explore different career paths and identify gaps in the training and education they need within the oil and gas industry? We’re still planning to launch the first phase of the Careers in Oil + Gas online tool this spring, and you can check out a quick demo below!
