Petroplan’s unrivalled reputation for the prompt and accurate administration of multi-currency payrolls is another factor in the high retention rates amongst our contractors. We also help our contractors with basic tax information, or refer them to in-country specialists.

This proven skill in ensuring contractors’ terms of employment are clear and delivered upon by employers is now embedded in an online timesheet and expense system known as PetroPay and accessible via this website.


For employers, PetroPay provides a transparent and trackable audit to approve their contractors’ timesheets, expenses and an overview of the profiles of all their Petroplan contractors in one place. For contractors the system also provides an up-to-date status of their submitted timesheets and expenses, plus it allows them to access their Petroplan placement history, including records of their hourly or day rates.
