Geoscientists and Reservoir Engineers at ConocoPhillips can expect an exciting and varied professional career. Our subsurface teams use a powerful combination of creativity, team work and state-of-the-art technology to play a vital role in our continued success in discovering oil and gas fields.
Within our Exploration and Production business, opportunities for Geoscientists and Reservoir Engineers to develop their careers include:
The search for new oil and gas fields in our exploration teams.
Geological operations and well planning.
Field development and reservoir modeling – designing field development plans and bringing new discoveries to efficient production.
Reservoir management and production engineering in our existing fields.
Graduate hires are typically positioned within a multi-function team working one or more of these areas, working closely with other team members and assigned mentors. Rotational assignments will be offered in the first 2-3 years to broaden the experience and accurate skills development. A significant portion of the professional development in the early years is down to hands-on work experience and team work, supplemented by regular formal training schools.
Beyond the first few years, ConocoPhillips can provide global opportunities for continued career development within its global operations.
For these opportunities, we generally recruit graduates from established Petroleum Geoscience, Geophysics or Petroleum Engineering MSc courses, or holders of a relevant PhD.
