Onshore Oil and Gas Job


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Taught English in Thailand 10 years ago, moved back to UK with family to get wife passport. Got MSc, Wells Completion Engineer - 7 years. Want to move back to Thailand. Literally seen 2 jobs in last year on oilandgasjobsearch.com, oilcareers.com, linkedin.

 

Can anyone recommend the best places to look for onshore oil jobs for Thailand. Any advice for my predicament - fancy living in Thailand instead of other well known oil areas worldwide. Don’t want to teach again.

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Thanks for the reply,

 

Yes looked at Fircroft, Orion etc and it seems due to low oil price and covid i will be competing for 500 other folk anyways if a job ever pops up. That combined with an apparent Thai locals only regime its seems impossible. 

 

What do u think, keep trying or find another route (ie Asia but just not Thailand, teach :), or retirement fund)?

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Hi Chris,

This may not be helpful.

I met a chap a while back (mark) who worked for an English recruitment company based in Singapore.

Specifically for the Oil & Gas industry world wide.

Sorry cannot remember the name,maybe you could research for the Singapore based office.

Good luck

Hi,

 

I met folk in Thailand who are based there and work abroad in e.g. Africa or work online consulting but for work for companies outside of Thailand. The issue with O&G is you need the magic 10 years to be given the ticket to go anyway (in most cases). I was offered an interview with a Norwegian company to work in Norway for 1 year. It was good money but didn't want to leave the kids or bring them with me (too expensive - worked there before). There seems to be a few job flying round for Europe but trying to get to the US or Asia seems like its a privilege.

 

I also have a MSc in renewables (not blowing my own trumpet :)) but realised that the renewable industry pays sh*t so seems like sticking with O&G is better for the money but comes with its own issues of working in a rubbish location and/or leaving my family for work.

 

Just seeing whether anyone else was going through the same issue and if they could advise on the best way forward?

 

Regards,

 

Chris
