The oil and gas industry is facing a major technical talent shortfall in the exploration and production (E&P) sector that could be just as crippling – if not more so – as the declining availability of accessible oil and gas reserves. Over the last decade, industry volatility forced energy companies to cut their workforce down to bare bones and slash training programs. Now, as the market slowly rebounds, companies are ready to hire again– but the talent isn’t there.

Business success within the oil and gas industry can hinge on a number of factors including effectively transferring knowledge among its employees, complying with regulations, managing risks with technology, and innovating more efficient methods to get their products and services to market. In order to tackle these key areas, effective leaders must be readily available in oil and gas companies.

Leadership in the oil and gas sector takes more than pure engineering skills. It also requires being a risk manager. Although technical skills are critical, these leaders are expected to deal with economic uncertainty, a diverse workforce, demographic changes, regulatory issues, geopolitical risk and supply excesses/disruptions that drive volatility in oil and gas prices.
