On 18 July 2011, Invitations to participate in the Annual SPE Salary Survey were successfully sent to 49,239 professional members via e-mail. This year 8,520 members responded to the survey, resulting in a 17.3% response rate. This sample produces a margin of error of ±1.1% at a 95% confidence level.


This year’s participants are based in 98 different countries and represent citizenship in 101 countries. Their employers are based in 99 countries, and 46 U.S states. In 2011, a majority of respondents 54.6% were based in countries outside of the United States. Growth in membership outside of North America continues to drive this trend of increasing international participation in this study.


Women continue to progress in compensation in the petroleum industry, reporting a larger percentage increase in base and total compensation than men in 2011. Women again represented about 10% (9.6%) of respondents in this year’s survey.
