Asking the question we are all thinking. Benches were already at a seasonal high point, especially since the market volatility in January delayed some contract signing.

Watching the bench stack up quickly, our O&G clients halting all contractor spend, and now clients implementing wfh (not impacting projects heavily yet, but only a matter of time).

Not to mention the hit that closed client offices give to our pipeline BD efforts. Going to be a rough year. Find a project and hold onto it 🐟, not the time to be picky...

This was good to read right before I was about to confront my SM about some concerns I have about my treatment on the team. I was legit prepared to be okay with getting rolled off following the discussion but I think I’ll sit down and shut up for now. It’s not worth possibly losing my job.

How long do you predict it’ll take for things to level out again?

About 30% of US rigs being laid down and Saudi/Russia et al starting a price war

Really our group hasn’t had anyone on the bench for more than 1-2 days in any months

OP, if you don't mind would you be able to give some details about what consultants do for oil and gas companies? I come from another field so just curious about o&g consulting

As a former oil and gas employee, we had consultants help with capital cost reductions, improve well operational performance, strategic transformations, digital assessments and then of course all the MX/SAP/Oracle/<insert software name here> type implementation stuff too

I’m also getting to a stage where I’m really sad that people haven’t reached out to either my husband or myself to send well wishes or provide support. It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞
