Jobs in the pipeline for 2010
While 2009 proved an extremely difficult year for all industries, the predictions for the gas and oil industries would seem to be extremely positive. This
also bodes well for the creation of more oil jobs and careers for those looking to move into this buoyant industry.

Eyes to the Future
It would seem to be something of a paradox that, as oil reserves are reported to be dwindling, the oil industry is set to increase its drilling and
production potential. However, Steve Redgrave, the chairman of Podrill predicts that the industry is â€˜moving into a hig
