It’s becoming more advantageous for people employed in the oil and gas sector to become contractors, rather than remain in the permanent employment of one company. There are good reasons:

  • Freedom and flexibility. Do the work you want and leave the rest. Take time off when you want.
  • Higher hourly wage. Earn more than the permanent oil and gas professionals.
  • A spectrum of experience.Working for more companies and on more projects means you’ll develop yourself professionally and personally.

If you’re thinking of becoming an oil and gas contractor, you have some decisions to make. First decide whether to work through an umbrella company or through your own limited company. Your choice will depend on where you plan to work. If a limited company is the way forward for you, you’ll still need to ensure you can continue working as a limited company before accepting a contract. The key factors to consider are:

  • The length of the contract.
  • The country you’ll be working in.
