Redefine the foundations of our business

Our Geoscience and Petrotechnical experts drive our understanding of the subsurface and pioneer approaches that help us make better decisions across our business and industry. Primarily working to identify and understand hydrocarbon deposits, these teams combine unparalleled technical understanding with adept use of the latest technology to help clients estimate and increase recoverable reserves and optimize production. You’ll be part of multi-disciplinary teams that work in the field, the office or our learning centers and collaborate to solve some of the toughest challenges in our industry. After you complete your three-year structured development program, you’ll be in a position to shape your career; whether it’s deepening your expertise, moving into management or transferring your skills to another area of our business.

Development Program

As a trainee, you’ll begin a structured development program as soon as you join us. This is an industry-leading structured approach to development, combining state-of-the-art learning center courses, hands-on experience, and continuous technical development to help you perform to an exceptional level and achieve your potential. There’s a lot to learn when you start but you’ll constantly reinforce your understanding by applying it in your day-to-day work. Our commitment to continuous learning means you’ll be expected to keep developing your skills and technical expertise throughout your career.

As one of our Geophysicists, you’ll apply your knowledge and expertise of the earth’s properties to enhance our interpretations of geological data and greater define how we understand the subsurface. We acquire huge amounts of often previously unseen seismic and geophysical data around the world and you’ll help transform it into the knowledge that powers better decision making and more effective, more efficient services. You’ll be involved in the acquisition, processing and interpretation of that data and we offer a range of career opportunities to develop your skills and get exposure across the data lifecycle. You could work directly with clients to help them on acquiring data or you could learn to master data processing in one of our state-of-the-art centers, working alongside talented colleagues to devise new ways of spotting new patterns in vast amounts of data from every corner of the world. Or if you’re interested in interpreting data then you could work alongside international clients where you’ll be trained to use our pioneering interpretation systems. Wherever you join us, your career will be yours to shape if you have the drive and talent to make it happen.
