Additional points to note
Listed figures are for professional, permanent staff, not contract staff or ETOPs (except otherwise stated).
Some figures represent net total with tax deductions, while some represent salary without tax deductions.
All values are for monthly pay (not annual).
Oil exploration companies pay at least N500,000 for entry level employees, while servicing companies pay at least N200,000.
Multinational oil companies pay according to global standards because their employees can be deployed to anywhere in the world. This explains why they pay the highest salaries.
Most bank employees don’t get to earn the figures listed because the figures are for professional staff, whereas 75% of bank staffs are contract staff who don’t earn up to one-third of the figures listed. So, don’t be surprised to know that most “bankers” don’t earn as much as the listed figures.
Aviation companies pay between N600,000 and N800,000.
Actual salaries may vary slightly depending on qualification and unit.
Most companies offering seemingly low salaries bolster their pay with juicy allowances.

just an advice.
your first degree would qualify you, but what really gets u the job is the EXTRA qualifications u have, I mean HANDS-ON certification from reputable Oil and Gas Engineering training companies.
