Oil Industry Jobs in Alaska

oil pipeline jobs photoThe days of the great Trans-Alaska Pipeline construction bonanza are over, but there are still a lot of good high paying jobs in Alaska's oil industry. A good percentage of the work is performed up on the North Slope in Prudhoe Bay.

Over 1 million barrels of oil a day flow through the 800-mile pipeline and onto the market, supplying 15 percent of U.S. oil consumption.

The Prudhoe Bay oil fields also supply Alaska with thousands of jobs and billions of dollars for capital-improvement programs. It also funds most of the money that goes into the Alaska Permanent Fund which pays each resident of Alaska an annual dividend (historically between $1,100 and $2,000).

There have been other oil fields discovered on the Kenai Peninsula and in Cook Inlet.
