The extreme amount of layoffs in the Oil and Gas Industry over the past years has been no surprise to those working in the field. Until recently, there had been a steady decline in the industry, which left many companies desperate and in need of changes to keep afloat.
There’s definitely a renewed sense of optimism in the offshore industry. There has not been an OTC as well attended since pre-bust years. The industry that shed many thousands of jobs is now showing genuine excitement and enthusiasm. Innovation has been a key bi-product of the downturn, and the need for cost cutting has made innovation necessary.
Most of the companies that attended OTC this year had reinvented themselves and were well on the way to profitability. Everyone in attendance could tell that prosperity was right around the corner.
We should all get ready, offshore and subsea is about to come roaring back.
