Oil and Gas Jobs in Africa

We recruit for a wide range of jobs in Africa – our African clients include multi-national super-majors with assets on the continent, local E&Ps, NOCs, and service companies. With nineteen African countries producing significant amounts of oil and gas both on and offshore, it is a very important contributor to local economies in Africa – studies have estimated that approximately 57% of Africa's export earnings come from hydrocarbons.

The African countries with the highest levels of reserves and activity are Nigeria, Libya, Algeria, Angola, and Sudan – these 5 countries account for the majority of oil produced on the continent. International companies operating in the region include ExxonMobil, ENI, Sinopec, Total, Shell, Chevron, BP, and Petronas.
