Lagos / Offshore
An emerging sweet spot for the oil and gas industry, Africa is accelerating exploration and production developments in both its onshore and offshore sectors. National oil corporations are partnering with industry heavyweights from around the globe to rebuild infrastructure in the world's second largest continent. Vast oil and gas reserves are harnessed within Africa's respective countries, as well as the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Sea to the west.
Surveying can mean several different things as it relates to the oil and gas industry. When discussing oilfield surveying, this usually refers to checking and creating the legal boundary for drilling operations. Surveyors will use a variety of techniques including GPS systems, hand tools, and sketches to create such boundaries. Surveyors may also be responsible for checking ownership of properties, and registering any updates with the proper legal authorities. Surveyors typically spend most of their time in the field and will travel extensively for these positions.
