As America’s natural gas and oil companies continue to develop their workforce of the future, they’ve got a great story to tell.

A recent survey by EY indicated some younger Americans can learn more about how natural gas and oil companies and refiners are developing the energy that our country will need for decades to come – safely and responsibly.

The oil and natural gas industry will offer employment opportunity for women and minorities over the next couple of decades. So says a new report by consulting firm IHS, which projects significant job gains for women, African Americans and Hispanics between now and 2035.
IHS estimates that by 2035 Hispanics and African Americans will hold nearly 40 percent of the 1.9 million direct jobs in the oil and natural gas and petrochemical industries, with 16 percent of the jobs being held by women.
