E&P consultant market report 2018
In 2016 we undertook a survey to see how the drop in the oil price had affected the working lives of consultants within the E&P sector. That report showed that consultant day rates in 2016 were 27% less than 2013.
18 months on in April 2018 with the oil price creeping towards $80, we thought we would repeat the survey to see if there have been any marked changes.
Nearly 500 consultants completed the survey and our report is shown below.
