    Global Market Overview for Offshore Labor

    • The global oil and gas offshore labor market for 2023 is estimated to be $77.5 billion

    • By 2027, it is expected to reach a market value of $92.4 billion, with a CAGR of 4.51 percent

    • The offshore wind installation is expected to double over the next four years, reaching 1,300 newly commissioned turbines in 2026. The demand is coming from the Northwest Europe market as well as APAC and US regions, which, in turn, triggers the labor demand

When it comes to engineers, overall hiring in the industry has been tempered in recent months. The top required positions are Mechanical Engineers, Design Engineers, Petroleum Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Reservoir Engineers, Pipeline Engineers

    • The primary growth factor behind the steady job gains is the oil price rebound, which is expected to motivate US operators to ramp up investments to more than $90 Billion annually by 2027

    Market Drivers and Constraints : Offshore Labor

    The number of offshore labor is directly driven by the demand for offshore E&P activities globally. The E&P activities is set to rise in 2023 due to increase in global upstream spending


    • An offshore well continues to produce comparatively same volume of crude for 10–15 years, whereas onshore wells reach approx. 50–60 percent of production in the first year. This would ensure long demand for offshore labor compared to onshore

    • Nearly, 70 percent of the world’s oil & gas production comes from mature fields. This high number of maturing fields would demand production and related activities on offshore, to tap the maximum reserves, in order to meet the increased demand globally

    • New deep-water discoveries are expected to drive the demand for the offshore labor market

    • Offshore developments in wind farms are expected to demand more offshore labor in the near term


    • Talent supply in developed economies has been under severe pressure, due to an aging workforce, high youth unemployment, tighter labor markets, an increase in automation, etc.

    • Stringent regulatory policies, health and safety measures to be followed on offshore platform would limit the number of labor on platforms

    • Young graduates are increasingly hesitant to enter the oil and gas industries, preferring to work in renewables instead. According to estimates, the oil and gas sector will require an additional 8,000 petroleum engineers to capitalize on current high oil prices

    • Since labor has to stay in rigs for a longer duration, companies prefer to keep the crew to minimum, in order to bring down the expenses on accommodation, food, etc.

    • Recent developments in drilling, such as increased drilling speed (~100 times), would bring down the drilling time by 50 percent. This would bring down the labor count and requirement
