Midstream Industry Compensation Survey


Survey Opens April 1st

Keep Your Compensation Programs Competitive in the Midstream Segment

The Midstream Industry Compensation Survey (MICS) is an essential tool for identifying key components of a company’s compensation programs and job market rates in the midstream energy segment. You will get access to how various compensation policies and plans are designed, as well as a comprehensive total direct compensation snapshot of jobs ranging from administrative support to executive C-suite in both corporate and technical roles. Take a look below at some of the topics and components of compensation this survey covers:


  • Actual and projected salary increase budget
  • AIP/STIP design mechanics, such as formulaic vs discretionary, threshold/maximum performance multiples, metrics and metric weightings
  • LTIP design mechanics, such as timing of award, award value methodology, population eligibility, eligibility factors, mix of awards, vesting periods, vesting schedules, metrics, metric weightings, and dividends/distributions
  • Retirement policy, such as retirement age and years of service
  • Change-in-control policy for both executives and non-executives, such as equity treatment and cash payouts


  • Actual Total Direct Compensation
  • Target Total Direct Compensation
  • Salary grade minimum, midpoint, and maximum
  • AI/STI and LTI eligibility and receiving prevalence
