What are Oilfield Consultants?

Oilfield consultants are individuals who are contracted by operating companies to supervise activities and personnel on location. They oversee drilling, completion and production operations, as well as safety supervision and site construction.

Oil and gas consultants generally work in locations where there is activity in drilling and completing oil and gas wells. Due to the nature of this work, they will typically stay on site for several weeks at a time as they supervise operations.

While oil and gas consultants work on locations across the globe, DTC Energy Group’s consultants work domestically in many basins throughout the U.S.

Benefits of Hiring Oilfield Consultants

Operators benefit from hiring consultants through oilfield consulting firms in several key ways.

Oilfield consulting firms provide an immediate solution for filling a need for talent. Through a consulting firm such as DTC Energy Group, operators are able to tap into a large pool of highly talented and experienced consultants who are readily available to cover any given project.

Once the project has concluded, a consulting firm provides a smooth transition for releasing talent until their services are needed again.
