(Newswire.net -- May 31, 2013) Calgary, AB -- Today's oil and gas industry is growing at a steady pace.  With demand for oil and gas increasing globally especially in developing nations like China and India reliance on petroleum products and fossil fuels will steadily grow into the future. With this growth there is a need for oilfield contractors to assist oil and gas producers.

There are many different types of oilfield contractors who supply products and services to the oil and gas industry. From engineers, welding, insulation installation, plumbing and heating to electrical contractors and inspection services and more. All of these contractors are very important to the oil and gas industry.

“From our stats so far in 2013 it appears that the demand for skilled trades within the oil and gas industry is steady. We are seeing a rise in all disciplines especially engineers, operators, and technicians. We expect to see continued job growth on into 2014”, notes a spokesman from Rig Help (righelp.com).

When selecting a contractor a company has to take into consideration the ability of the contractor to face numerous challenges including working in remote locations, harsh environments, or in extreme climates. They may be limited by size and weight constraints. Finding a contractor who can operate in extreme conditions may be challenging. Operations managers must ensure the availability and reliability of equipment that will be brought into these hostile environments.

The comprehensive portfolio of services available from contractors, consisting of reliable, innovative, efficient and environmentally-friendly products, systems and solutions extends across the entire oil and gas industry. Finding oil or gas contractor companies who can complete large scale projects in timely manner many also pose challenges for oil and gas companies.

When hiring maintenance contractors, project managers must ensure cost-efficient operations, safety of both individuals and the environment during the entire life-cycle of the project. They must consider if the contractor has the correct skills and equipment to be able to complete the job. Project managers should ask, if all overhead costs are factored into the rates, so there are no surprises?
