As the effects of the downturn become more and more of a normality, investment is slowly beginning to resume and adaptation to low oil prices has become essential to survival. 

Much like a start-up company, the oil and gas market is relying on lower budgets and companies have no choice but to be creative with expenditure. In this era of oil and gas, cost-effective solutions are a must. 

Queue the introduction of tech... 

The nature of work in oil and gas is changing, as the potential of automation, big data and digitalization is being realised. This means that energy companies need to attract and retain a different kind of workforce. 

Could this mean that oil and gas professionals will be forced to gain qualifications in new technologies, or could operational jobs suddenly become scarce?
