Thanks in advance.
I would advise against joining the O&G industry now as times are really bad. If you still die die want to try you luck, then don't settle for anything less than 4.4k. Reason being that it is extremely unlikely you will be able to get any bonus for the next few years, so basic is all you will have.

If you go in average like the other industries, you will end up much lower than even civil service which runs on 3.5-4k x 16 months package.

Hi there, appreciate the quick response but i'm not going into oil/construction companies it's a consulting job pertaining to commodities risk. I second your opinion on the massive headcount cuts though, it's pretty bad. Even the MA intakes have decreased in a heartbeat.

To better times ahead!

I wish to give an opinion based on my 26 years experience in O&G where over 10 years as PM. My criteria for hiring eng. graduate inot an O&G MNC would be a minimum 6 years exp in O&G for PE, at least 10-15 years for SPE. You would need to have > 15 years before you could call yourself a qualified PM in O&G no matter what is your educational level.

Although you might be able to attend project management courses or having MBA, the project manager post requires skills and experiences not just knowledge. Skills are derived from experiences. Besides that PM is only for those who are know how to appreciate and apply - the knowledge, skills and possess traits of a project manager. It ranges from good discipline, sharpness of the mind, pro-active and ahead of schedule, solve the problem before it happens, cost & profit concious, high helicopter view of thing, eloquent, good leadership, powerful writing skill, possess certain philosophies, eg, "do it fast & with quality", etc. For these sort of qualities you would be paid between USD20k USD40k per month in Malaysia/Spore in the true O&G. You could get higher no. in middle east, Russia, Kazahstan, Autralia, Canada...................

So then, you would be wondering how could it be possible for a 26 or 30 years old to possess the O&G PM qualitifications and experences & to be paid that sort of salaries? The answer is it is not possible. There is no short cut. However, small backyard companies somewhere would be willing to employ you as PM...but it is not the same thing..
I somewhat agree with you.
You are not going to command USD20k and above in Singapore oil and gas if you do not go offshore and if you are not on an expat package.

But i agree with you on the experience. Without going through numerious projects as a field engineer offshore, it will be very difficult for you to become a project manager, no matter what qualifications you have.
