Discovering new areas. Developing their positions. Releasing full energy potential. They’re not just things our geoscientists do in the oil and gas field — they’re also what our geoscientists do in their personal and professional careers at ConocoPhillips.
We’re explorers, focused and disciplined on our company’s success, who selectively add high-quality opportunities to our portfolio. We’re innovators in forward-thinking data acquisition and processing techniques, and experts at identifying the sweet spots in unconventional reservoirs.
Our global geoscience team brings sophisticated technologies into some of the world’s most remote frontiers. Through continuously innovating, we make it possible to discover the previously unknown by retrieving seismic images under high-impedance materials, and to improve our cost and exploration performance by leveraging compression sensing concepts. We’re not only effectively reducing exploration risks, but also maximizing resource recovery around the world.
We encourage experienced geoscientists in any of these specialised disciplines to dig deeper into our professional opportunities:

What we do
We explore for and produce oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids across the globe. Our portfolio includes strong legacy producing assets in the U.S. Lower 48, Alaska, Canada, the United Kingdom and Norway; growth opportunities in major development projects around the world; and a global exploration programme. Explore our Fact Sheets for more details.
How we do it
We’re committed to a high standard of performance, but not at all costs. Our SPIRIT Values — Safety, People, Integrity, Responsibility, Innovation and Teamwork — are at the core of everything we do. We stake our reputation on being accountable to our stakeholders, communities and each other.
Who we’re looking for
We seek performance-driven and highly accountable individuals with a passion for finding geological and geophysical solutions as part of a collaborative team. We believe that the scientific and business challenges in the energy industry provide one of the most exciting and rewarding careers that geoscientists can pursue. We value each individual’s unique experiences, skills and inputs while maximizing on professional development and technology advancement opportunities.
Use innovative software and techniques to synthesize subsurface data into new concepts that drive performance in the discovery and production of hydrocarbons. Be acknowledged for directly contributing to our multidisciplinary team’s and enterprise’s success through potential work assignments in exploration, field development, regional studies, geoscience technology or operations.
How you can grow
We encourage continuous learning and improvement for all our workforce. Internal and external courses, field trips and e-learning opportunities are available to geoscientists in every stage of their careers. Our Networks of Excellence strengthen our capabilities to share knowledge globally among our technical professionals. We’re committed to energy-related research and supporting the global geoscience community — that’s why we encourage our professionals to present their technical expertise at industry conferences and in publications when appropriate.
Accelerate your career
As an early career geoscientist, we know that your career development is a top priority for you in the same way it is for us. Known as “Accelerate,” our multi-year development programme will provide opportunities for you to maximise your development while directly contributing to business goals. Formal technical training complements on-the-job experience and mentoring.
Accelerate provides you with a range of interesting and challenging technical assignments, an individual support network and underpinning technical and non-technical training to support your broader development. You will be able to drive your own development, will have challenging goals to strive toward and will have an individually tailored development plan outlining your personal aspirations — a great foundation for your future career with us.
