Oil and Gas Jobs in India

India’s economic growth means that it’s moving towards becoming a real heavyweight in the international oil and gas industry, although mainly on the consumer side. India’s vast offshore oil reserves and proven natural gas resources put it in good future stead for development. As a consequence, the roles available in the country are mostly permanent due to the long-term nature of many of their projects, and are across a broad range of areas, such as a petrochemicals, electrical engineering and piping engineering. By embarking on a career in India, it is possible to start a highly prosperous career as the companies operating there seek people with experience and expert knowledge of the industry to drive the Indian oil and gas economy forward through high-class engineering.

Candidates will mainly be based in some of the largest cities, including Mumbai (Bombay), Bangalore (Bengaluru) and Chennai (Madras). We have an office located in Mumbai so can provide help and advice upon your relocation. Expats enjoy a good lifestyle in any major Indian city and there is an established community to help you settle in.

Many of our vacancies are for those with high amounts of experience, such as lead pipeline design engineers, functional heads, senior geotechnical engineers and well servicing managers. This is, in part, due to the requirement for highly-skilled engineers to lead India’s growing base of home-grown talent.

Whilst the market is mostly state-controlled, there are signs of emerging opportunities to be had which will mean further jobs in the future. If you’re interested in working in one of the largest economies in the world, this could be an excellent choice. You can learn more about our current roles below.
