Field Engineer

Is working as a Field Engineer in oil and gas for you?

Field Engineers are on the front line, involved in every phase of our business—from acquiring the first data needed for drilling decisions to designing plans for long-range development of complex multiwell, multireservoir fields. They provide this data from some of the world’s toughest environments—from the searing heat of Middle Eastern deserts to the numbing cold of Siberian taiga, and from the steamy jungles of Brazil to the typhoon-swept oceans of the South China Sea.

Drilling thousands of meters down into the Earth is an intense and dangerous business. Wells are often in some of the most remote and inhospitable places in the world; this means that our engineers have to be able to adapt. Regardless of the job you do with Schlumberger, all our people are focused on delivering service excellence, no matter what the conditions. We have to be on top of our game 24/7 because the results of our work have multimillion dollar consequences for our clients.

On location, you will normally have to share amenities with your coworkers. Women engineers are still in a minority in our industry, which is why we pay special attention to make sure living conditions are appropriate. All our field personnel need to be ready to adapt and take the initiative.

Living and working at a wellsite means the conditions are often extreme and the job is high pressure. But this environment helps bring people together, and the respect and trust that develop between you and colleagues often create friendships that last a lifetime. And it all adds up to the Schlumberger way of life!
