Recruitment is a core area for new offshore organization

It must become far more attractive for young people to enter the oil- and gas industry, the potential of which extends far beyond the coming years, says Franz William Sørensen, chairman of Oil Gas Denmark and Vice President of Maersk Oil, to ShippingWatch.

The recruitment of qualified employees for the growing oil and gas industry is one of the core areas for the work to be carried out over the coming years by the new Danish industrial association Oil Gas Denmark.

“Basically, there is great potential for increasing extraction, but it is becoming harder and harder to produce the oil left in the subsoil. The sector is very important to Denmark and to the involved companies. In addition to knowledge sharing, it is important that entering the industry becomes an attractive option for young people, and we must make sure they understand that the industry has potential that extends far beyond the coming years,” says Franz William Sørensen, chairman of Oil Gas Denmark and Vice President of Maersk Oil, to ShippingWatch.
