E&P Median Salary Comparison
I've been going through the detailed BLS state-level data and will provide a more comprehensive report soon.
But until then, below are interactive charts showing the upstream oil & gas exploration and production sector median wages by select professional groups and states.
While employment has dropped across the sector (Previous report), median wages continued to increase across most groups.
Wages vary significantly by state, especially in the early years of the data set, where Pennsylvania wages were markedly lower.
