About the 2019 SPE Membership Salary Survey

Each year, SPE surveys its professional members to benchmark global compensation trends in the industry. The 2019 SPE Membership Salary Survey is a sample of self-reported information from petroleum industry professionals worldwide. This year's participants are based in 87 countries and 38 US states. Their employers are headquartered in 78 countries.

Invitations to participate in the 2019 SPE Membership Salary Survey were sent to 84,541 professional members via email. By the close of the survey on 10 July 2019, 4,037 members responded for a response rate of 4.8%, of whom 2,796 provided valid region and compensation data, resulting in a 3.3% final response rate.  This sample of completed responses produces a margin of error of ±1.82% at a 95% confidence level. Salary information and other data in the reports are entirely self-reported, as we rely on members to provide information to help us better understand the condition of the industry. It is not a definitive source of data for making compensation decisions, but it can be a useful reference where sufficient data exists.
