Postby Not Sure » Tue, 14 Jun 2005 11:15 am

with 8 years experience...in the oil and gas industry.

Scope would be of a rotating equipment engineer for a MNC company here...dealing with rotating equipment, generating specs, evaluating offers, installations, etc etc.

whats the ball park figure like for a local engineer for a position of such nature. cheers

First of all you did not qualify your engineering status. Are you a real engineer (e.g. degreed) or a Poly Diploma with the local title of engineer? (not a real engineer but just a glorified technician with the title and none of the responsibility)]

Assuming you are a real degreed engineer (mechanical specializing in rotating equipment) and local I would say probably 3.5 K low end up to around 5.5/6K upper end. If you are a maintenance Manager probably up to 7K. As you say you are O&G related then I would assume most of your experience would be in compressors, etc with possibility some experience in small PowerGen units.

If you are more into project engineering or sales engineering then maybe 3-5.5K, again possibly a little more as a department head. These figures are possibly a little high due to the recent couple of years of downturn. Whether or not your mnc is a equipment provider or a contractor would also have a bearing as well.

Hope this helps. As your're not registered I cannot send you a PM or email.

Rotating equipment as in directional drilling bits or generic equipment? Would agree with sms if you are looking to be based onshore. However, if you are looking to be based offshore (as in onboard rigs / platforms - FI/FO) then you should be looking at more than US$7K per month.

In the O&G industry, directional drilling etc, would be referred to as a downhole tools engineer or drilling engineering. Rotating equipment specifically refers to compressors, turbines, and so forth.
