    • AmeraTex Energy New Ranking: The Most Lucrative CountriesFor Oil And Gas WorkersNews syndication services provided by AmeraTex Energy - An Oil & Natural Gas Exploration company.The oil and gas industry has been a true bright spot amid the economic downturn. Regions with rampantdrilling like south Texas and North Dakota have among the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. InDickinson, N.D. workers at McDonald’s can get a $300 signing bonus and wages of $15 or more an hour.There’s a booming business in building “man camps” to house all the roughnecks needed to drill wells inthe Bakken or Eagle Ford shale. Those guys (and they are almost always guys) up in North Dakota bravefrigid temperatures to bore holes in the ground. Since 2008 North Dakota has surpassed Oklahoma,California and Alaska to become the second-biggest oil-producing state in the nation (after Texas), withproduction upwards of 700,000 barrels per day.Thanks to all this labor demand, the average pay for an oil and gas worker in the United States hasclimbed to $124,000, according to Hays, the global headhunting and recruiting consultancy. Hays hasreleased its new survey of worldwide pay trends in the oil & gas sector, finding that the average basesalary of oil industry workers climbed 8.5% last year, and 14% over two years to $87,000.As good as the pay in the U.S. is, however, skilled oilfield workers can make much more overseas wherethe labor pool is tighter.The hottest spot for oil & gas workers is Australia, where the global supermajors like Chevron and Shellare in the process of building more than $150 billion worth of projects to export liquefied natural gas.I’m told that the shortage of welders in northwestern Australia is so severe that an experienced metalworker can make well over $250,000 a year. Labor inflation has tacked on billions of dollars to thepricetag of the biggest LNG project there, the $52 billion Gorgon project operated by Chevron.According to Hays one of the spots where workers are compensated the most in “danger money andhardship allowance” is off the iceberg-strewn arctic coast of Russia, where companies like Rosneft andExxonMobil are starting to explore for untapped hordes of oil and gas.As you can see below, the United States ranks just 21st in oil & gas pay. This time of year when the icywinds sweep across North Dakota, there’s bound to be plenty of roughnecks thinking they might enjoy afew years of higher pay and warmer temperatures in the likes of Mexico, Malaysia or even Papua NewGuinea.Oil & gas employment goes up and down with commodity prices, of course, but according to thehundreds of employers who contributed to the Hays survey, 37% say that skills shortages remain a realconcern. That’s good news for Hays, which says that its 7,800 worldwide consultants placed 55,000permanent workers last year and 182,000 in temporary assignments.
