Horizontal Well Workforce Study

The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC) is pleased to share our 2021 Horizontal Well Workforce Study.

This report reflects changing geological opportunities and technological advances in our industry, and details the types of workers and skills required to sustain development activities.

To develop the report, PSAC approached Yager Management Ltd. to study three representative-type wells:

While the actual equipment and services required for each of these wells is similar, the access costs, the depth and length of the horizontal well, and the number of hydraulic fracturing treatments are all different resulting in varying costs and total employment requirements.
