The majority of oil and gas contractors in a recent survey agreed the election of Donald J. Trump will have a “positive result” and create more jobs in the global energy sector, according to NES Global Talent.

NES Global, which helps provide workers for oil and gas, construction, mining, manufacturing and other sectors, recently surveyed more than 300 oil and gas contractors.

Of those surveyed worldwide, 48 percent said they “personally felt positive” about Trump’s election and 63 percent said it would have a positive effect on the energy industry.

Among U.S. respondents, 70 percent said the result was positive and 78 percent expected it would mean good news for the energy sector. Also, 64 percent of U.S. respondents felt more confident about job prospects, compared to 44 percent for respondents worldwide, according to the results.

“Donald Trump certainly made some bold claims on the campaign trail which could see his presidency herald a seismic shift in US domestic energy policy and reignite growth in the sector,” NES Global said in a statement released with the results.

“Regulatory impediments look likely to be removed and there will be little government support now for those blocking infrastructure projects, leaving the path open for new pipeline projects to move forward,” the statement continued.
