Default Oil and Gas/ Construction Project Engineer Salary Advice

My contract is expiring soon and I feel I'm severely underpaid(5k monthly). Would appreciate your inputs on how much I should be getting. Except for 2 years at a shipyard, the rest were largely office based.

Singaporean, Bachelors and Masters from NTU, 9 years experience (7 years in offshore oil and gas, 2 years in chemicals)

What did you study? What do you mean that you have heavily underpaid? On what basis do you think you should be paid more than 5k monthly? After working for some years, one should not think academic achievement is yardstick for measuring development and income.

I'll ignore your tone and answer the questions.

I studied mechanical engineering for both degrees. I have colleagues who are electrical, instrumentation and mechanical engineers in the same industry with similar years of experience who are paid 7-8k. I have looked at salary surveys by various manpower firms that suggest a project engineer of my experience is getting 6-10k. And 9 years is not "some years of experience"; it's substantial.
