Spanning Canada and the United States, North America is home to a plethora of major industry players, including Exxon Mobil Corp, the world's second-largest publicly traded company after Royal Dutch Shell. The region's oil and natural gas industry is focused on developing oil sands, deepwater gulf prospects and increasingly profitable shale deposits stretching across the continent. One of the premier sweet spots for deepwater exploration, the Gulf of Mexico is the largest body of water indenting the U.S. continental coastline, and its subsea developments continue to spark both national and international interest.
Catering professionals are responsible for the planning, preparation and delivery of meals, typically to large groups of employees. Food and beverage services are frequently provided to offshore and oilfield workers, especially those working long hours, odd schedules or in remote locations. Catering plays a large part in the health, wellness and overall satisfaction of employees.
