ExxonMobil Recruiting in 'Many Locations' in 2017

Exxon Mobil Corp. will be recruiting in many locations this year, according to a statement from a company representative.

“We can’t speak for the job market as a whole, but we plan our business over the long-term and ExxonMobil and its affiliates are recruiting in many locations,” the spokesperson told Rigzone, when asked if 2017 would be better than last year for oil and gas graduates hoping to get recruited into the oil industry.

Although Exxon didn’t put a number on the amount of workers it is looking to employ within the next 12 months, the company’s website revealed that the firm is currently looking for a range of workers in a number of countries around the world, including the UK, the United States and Papua New Guinea.

ExxonMobil recently acquired 3.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent in New Mexico’s highly-prolific, oil prone section of the Permian Basin for an upfront payment of $5.6 billion in ExxonMobil shares and a series of additional contingent cash payments totaling up to $1 billion.

The payments will begin in 2020 and end no later than 2032, commensurate with the resources’ development, ExxonMobil said in a company statement.

The company also announced late last year that a new natural gas discovery had been made in the Papua New Guinea North Highlands, 13 miles northwest of the Hides Gas Field.

The Muruk-1 well encountered similar high-quality sandstone reservoirs as the Hides field and was in line with pre-drill expectations, according to an ExxonMobil statement. The well was safely drilled to 10,630 feet, with evaluations currently underway to determine the size of the discovery.

“We are excited by the results of the Muruk-1 exploration well, which confirms the presence of hydrocarbons in the same high-quality sandstone reservoirs as the Hides field that underpins the PNG LNG project,” Steve Greenlee, president of ExxonMobil Exploration Company, said in a company statement at the time.
