14 Sep 4 Gas & Oil Drilling Trends Coming in 2023
The gas and oil industry is always shifting as the world changes. The focus is turning to reinvention, becoming a technology-forward and purpose-driven industry. Let’s explore four gas and oil trends you’ll find in 2023.
A Bit of Reinvention
Oil and gas companies are looking to reinvent themselves. Key changes and ideas they want to focus on include:
- Committing to climate change.
- Focusing on financial stability and health.
- Transforming business models.
- Practicing capital discipline.
The higher gas prices in 2022 boosted the switch to clean energy plans. Higher gasoline prices unveiled that oil and gas companies had less capital discipline and focused on the core business. They needed to focus more on sustainable opportunities to keep the industry moving forward instead of staying put.
Changing Fueling Preferences
The industry can’t ignore the generational shift from baby boomers to millennials. This shift brings different fueling preferences and a want for more convenient user experiences. Many fuel retailers face challenges trying to adapt. The companies that thrive during this transition will be those willing to ask, “How can we strive to offer more than fuel?” Convenience should be at the core of customer service, and businesses in the fuel industry need to offer products and services other than oil.
Welcome a New Energy Era
The scales in the oil and gas industry have shifted, and companies need to make room to change. The time has come to strategize a new plan for the future. Digitalization can help to a certain extent, but companies need to jump at the opportunity to lead the way by completely transforming traditional solutions and business models.
The industry needs to integrate solutions for decarbonizing projects in the works. They need to find a way to become even greener and leaner.
Offer Greener Jobs and Better Benefits
Employers in the industry are learning to grab the best candidates they need to offer greener jobs and better benefits. Only 50 percent of the jobs lost during the substantial layoff of 2020 have come back. Oil and gas companies must differentiate themselves from others in a competitive hiring market.
The top recruiting pitch will be decarbonization commitments and offering agile and flexible workplace structures. Embracing hybrid and remote work will aid companies in retaining employees.
Watch as these gas and oil trends come to fruition during the upcoming year. The industry is ever-changing, and these trends are examples of that.
