We Understand Oil and Gas Sector Background Screening

Screen your employees and contractors quickly—and accurately.

Greater automation, high demand variability, and the shift to renewable energy are just a few of the factors reshaping your industry. But as your employment strategy evolves, your need for rapid and effective background screening does not.

Challenges: For many of your industry segments—upstream, midstream, drilling, and well-servicing sectors— the short-term market outlook is positive. Profits are up. Free cash flows are high. Supply disruptions are declining. For other segments, the outlook is more troubled—like for downstream entities facing thinning demand, recession fears, and projected increases in global refining capacity. From an employment perspective, will the current talent gap and candidate shortages for engineers and other skilled oil and gas workers surge for a few years before receding in response to a growing demand for renewables and the broader green transition? Maybe. But whether your candidate pipeline is packed or thinning, you want to be sure every employee and contractor you hire has a clean background.

Experience: Energy owners and operators represent a major part of our business—and have for many years. We have learned a great deal from our oil and gas clients—which include many of the largest global, regional, and national entities in the world—about what makes a prospective oil and gas employee or contractor qualified, with respect to background screening.
