Terribly interesting piece. Very useful to think about how skills can match industry demand. Thanks, Stephen. One quick Q - if the high productivity per worker in oil/gas extends from the very high capital costs, is there necessarily any link between high productivity and salaries? It's not obvious to me that there's necessarily any scarcity involved? I've likely missed something, so apologies in advance! best wishes, eric

Thanks for the comment, Eric. Regarding your question, there are some factors that underlie the high productivity per worker in oil and gas. Salary is a factor, though it goes with others. But key is the quality skill capacity required for a particular role.

Thank you for the thoughtful piece, Stephen. You don't mention the role of companies to invest in skills, ideally alongside government and in line with public policies. What role do you see for them?
