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.

They act as a liaison between the technical department and construction on engineering issues and implement best practices. Typical activities include preparing site reports, providing technical advice to the general workforce, surveying sites, and liaising with other engineers, consultants, contractors and clients.
