Operations and Maintenance - graduate opportunities

The role of operation and maintenance (O&M) is to deliver safe, predictable, and profitable operations in accordance with regulations, governance, and operational parameters.

O&M professionals cover all aspects of operation, maintenance and modifications for operating assets, and modification and investment projects for all phases. O&M is supporting both our offshore and onshore plants.

In Norway, we operate offshore fields of all sizes, from giants such as Troll, Statfjord, and Gullfaks, to small fast-track projects tied to existing infrastructure. Our task is to transform the Norwegian shelf and create value for our owners, suppliers, and the people of Norway. This work depends on good cooperation across the business organisation and the ability to identify and change our ways of working.

Our onshore plants in Scandinavia transform oil and gas into different fuels and products. They have an essential role in creating value while improving the carbon efficiency in operations and delivering more sustainable products. This includes CO2 reduction, electrification, and biofuels. In addition, the digitalisation of our operations will be in focus.

For me, operations and maintenance is about managing risk. It’s how you are able to identify and assess it then take the right actions and decisions. Equinor has been a great place to develop this experience because we have great expertise from years in the industry and you get to learn from the best.

Working in operations and maintenance is really rewarding. You become a part of a team that works towards the common goal of performing the “right maintenance, at the right time, with the right effort”. As a graduate, your leaders and colleagues will help you perform your best, while you develop your skills as an engineer.
