About the survey
The EY Oil and Gas US Perceptions Study was developed by subject matter resources within EY’s US Oil and Gas practice. In developing the survey, EY sought to unearth new and valuable insights not available through any other existing research.
The EY Oil and Gas US Perceptions Study involved two surveys:
This survey was conducted online, by FleishmanHillard on behalf of EY, between January 25 and February 3, 2017. A total of 1,204 American consumers aged 16 and older were interviewed nationwide, including: 1,004 Americans aged 19 and older and 200 Americans aged 16 to 18.
The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of this population according to figures obtained from the Census Bureau of the United States in terms of gender, age, region, ethnicity and race. Because the sample is based on those who initially self-selected for participation, no estimates of sampling error can be calculated. Answers may not sum to 100% due to rounding.
Oil and Gas executive survey
EY also conducted a second survey of 109 oil and gas executives based in North America. This survey was conducted online, by FleishmanHillard on behalf of EY, between February 28 and March 5, 2017. Of the respondents surveyed, 98% currently work in the oil and gas industry while 2% worked in industry within the past two years. More than half (55%) of respondents are C-suite, chairman, owner, partners in their companies, 19% are presidents/directors, and 26% are vice-presidents, deputy directors, general managers or department heads. Of the respondents, 19% have more than 40 years of oil and gas experience, 36% have 30-39 years, 19% have 20-29 years, 17% have 11 to 19 years, and 9% have 10 years or less.
Because the sample is based on those who initially self-selected for participation, no estimates of sampling error can be calculated. Answers may not sum to 100% due to rounding.
