Maersk Group oil and gas jobs explained

Energy is a complex business. The path from suspecting there may be energy reserves beneath the ground in a particular location, to actually being in a position to provide energy to consumers in the state it needs to be, is extremely long, and has many challenging, often risk-laden steps.
Maersk Group is involved in many of the steps on this path. From Exploration and Production, through drilling and extensive oil and gas services, there are many different types of people required to keep our essential production and distribution chain working as it should.
Whether you have an entry-level job as a ‘roughneck’ on a rig, are the captain of a 400m oil tanker, or the CEO of a business unit, you need exceptional drive, dedication and a high level of skill, in order to be a member of the Maersk oil and gas teams. Everyone who works within Maersk has an important part to play and must come to work every day ready to play it to the full.
