Operating across 6 continents, at Petroplan we have the expert knowledge to place skilled candidates in oil and gas positions worldwide. Our European office enables us to provide a tailored regional service because we understand the culture and job market in Azerbaijan and know what it takes to succeed in this specific energy industry.
Located between Russia and Asia, Azerbaijan is well-known for its oil and gas production because almost two-thirds of the region is rich in natural oil and gas resources. Azerbaijan is a central region in terms of oil exploration and development and a number of Western companies have invested heavily in the industry. As such, there are a number of roles for expats looking to further their oil and gas career. Petroplan knows this area very well having managed over 300 contractors in this region for over 10 years.
In order to seize the opportunities that Azerbaijan offers, expats will require a working visa and must register their entry into the region. The embassy in the region’s capital, Baku is renowned for delays in the process so you should begin the application as soon as you’ve decided on your position.
Azerbaijan is rich in cultural heritage and you’ll be able to find all the local amenities in both Baku and further out with a big expat community and this summer, Baku plays host to the European Games. The cost of living is better than in the UK and there are two international schools in the capital if you’re bringing your family. The company should provide you with private health insurance but if not it is worth investing in this.
