Salary Survey

Highlights from the 2015 Salary Survey

  • SPE professional members who work in the upstream oil and gas industry reported an average calculated total compensation of USD 206,020 in 2015.
  • Total compensation decreased from USD 214,328 in 2014 to USD 206,020, due to both an overall decrease in base pay and a decrease in other compensation (including bonuses).
    • Still, more than half (58.5%) of respondents indicated their base pay increased in the past year.
    • Smaller increases for the 58.5% was not enough to offset the larger decreases for others, resulting in an overall decrease in base pay.
  • Other compensation has continued to decline since 2013 (USD 64,000), with members reporting an average of USD 57,889 in 2014 and USD 52,931 in 2015.
