As a graduate in the Subsurface network, you will work within a multidisciplinary team and build your competence alongside colleagues from different backgrounds. You will have the opportunity to work in various areas, including Geological, Geophysical, or Petrophysical evaluations, Basin, Play & Petroleum System Analysis, Prospect Evaluation & Maturation, Well Planning, Reservoir evaluation, characterization, and modeling. Geoscience and Data Science resources may also be involved in technology development and implementation.

Meet one of our graduates

During the programme I’ve learnt a lot, and I think most of that is because of the job rotations. Each rotation is somewhat like starting a new job. You get to know different projects and work with different teams, and you also learn a lot about the different perspectives, challenges and risks that each project has.
