Summary:
Nigeria is a country in a hurry for development, but the lack of executive and technological capacity is a common phenomenon. Efforts to provide the right climate for the development and encouragement of indigenous expertise will go a long way to enhance the job satisfaction of employees, particularly petroleum engineers in the petroleum industry, an industry requiring a high level technology and the largest national revenue earner. Concepts of motivation were used as a starting point to provide a broad integrative perspective to the study of job satisfaction of Nigerian Petroleum Engineers. Empirical results of comparison of job satisfaction of Petroleum Engineers in the private and public petroleum companies in Nigeria highlight the areas needing attention to improve the job satisfaction of these engineers. The results also show the general characteristics of the private petroleum companies vis-a-vis the public petroleum companies as at the time the study was made.
