Vetergy Group Seeking U.S. Military Veterans for Oil & Gas Jobs - Press Release

The oil and natural gas industry is projected to create another 500,000 jobs over the next seven years, and we’re going to need a trained and skilled workforce in order to continue to produce and to refine and transport the oil and natural gas we use right here in the United States.
— Jack Gerard, API President

Energy independence and “The Great Crew Change” have created tremendous opportunities for motivated talent to access rewarding careers in Oil and Natural Gas (O&NG). Job creators will need to fill hundreds of thousands, if not, millions of jobs in the next decade.

The VETERGY GROUP identifies and aligns US Military veterans with the attitude and aptitude required to deliver exceptional performance in today’s modern petroleum industry.

VETERGY locates and screens veterans, then enhances their capabilities through an on-line education management tool powered by SkillGRID®, the industry’s leading fit-for-purpose eLearning delivery solution.  Candidates receive International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) accredited high-impact, multimedia learning programs focused on basic oilfield technology before they are presented for interview.  This process not only offers ‘ready-to-work’ candidates, but also ensures that individuals have demonstrated their motivation by completing the rigorous program.

VETERGY is veteran owned and industry seasoned.  David Wilbur, the founder and President, accrued more than 4000 hours in fixed-wing tactical military aircraft during aircraft carrier and shore-based operations including combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Since retiring from the Marines, David has worked in various roles with major operators, drilling contractors, service contractors and contingent labor staffing agencies from the rig floor / dog house to the leadership team. David has developed a clear understanding of the skill requirements and parallel demand for flawless human performance in the oilfield. The suitability of using the comparable skills and proven discipline of military veterans to work in the oilfield is unmistakable.

VETERGY works closely with our veteran applicants to accelerate their transition into the commercial workforce.  We map a veteran’s capabilities with our clients’ needs, deeply understanding and addressing performance gaps so that staffing requirements are optimized.

VETERGY is fully committed to the mission of delivering reliable human performance to the oil & natural gas industry through a proven manpower supply channel that is globally deployable.  We recognize the urgency for this demand and can scale our concept to meet the market call.
