While the oil and gas industry provides sustainable benefits to Newfoundland and Labrador in the form of royalties and other economic upsides, the industry also provides intangible benefits. For Lauren Carnell, her career started right here in the province with oil and gas work-terms, and it was these work-terms that led her to a rewarding, full-time job in NL’s oil and gas industry. A local career in oil and gas industry ensures Lauren is always there for the people who mean the most to her. Like Lauren, many other young people are able to stay in their home province, surrounded by friends and family, because the offshore oil and gas sector has provided a reliable, rewarding career.
“Once I did my first work-term, I knew that I was hooked. I can stay in Newfoundland, work at a job I love and not have to uproot my life and leave my family.”
