Currently the chances of Supervisors in Oil and Gas Drilling finding employment are limited because only a small number of people in this occupation are employed in the local area. Most exploration activity has been in the offshore of Nova Scotia, although oil and gas activity draws from a labour supply across Nova Scotia as well as other parts of Canada. ExxonMobil announced it will not extend the life of its Sable Offshore Energy Project, which will adversely affect demand for this occupational group. In Cape Breton, Petroworth plans to drill for oil and natural gas in the Lake Ainsllie area, although this activity is not expected to create much employment in the exploration phase. Some workers in this region work temporarily in western Canada.
Although employment opportunities locally are limited, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Supervisors in Oil and Gas Drilling in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
