States with the Most Oil & Gas Jobs

With your OilJobFinder Membership you'll be able to find all the latest oil and gas jobs in the United States and worldwide.

Oil exploration and production companies - as well as employers supporting the industry (trucking and manufacturing companies, for instance) - are currently scrambling to find blue and white collar workers to fill thousands of open positions. In some states, there's a genuine crisis due to worker shortages.

What's driving the industry right now? "Shale Gas."

Thanks to fairly recent and significant shale gas discoveries in states ranging from North Dakota to Ohio, Texas, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania, there are more jobs than people to fill them.
