Brazil’s economic growth makes it an attractive location to work. With significant recent discoveries in pre-salt oil reserves, the Brazilian oil and gas industry looks set to propel the country towards becoming one of the world’s largest oil producers, fuelled by offshore potential.
Pre-salt discoveries have the potential to increase oil reserves four-fold, and whilst pre-salt oil reserves are more difficult to obtain, the number of future employment opportunities in the industry is significantly higher due to the discoveries.
Skilled engineers and technical professionals will be required to support the increased oil production, as well as the large-scale future exploration projects. Federal government predictions estimate that up to 250,000 oil professionals will be required by 2016.
At present there is a high demand for Operations Managers, Logistics Managers, Project Managers and Contracts Engineers, and the presence of Supermajors such as ExxonMobil, BG Group and Chevron, indicates a prosperous future for Brazil’s oil industry.
