Career Profile: Chun Lin


From one small town to a global engineer—Chun Lin first heard about Schlumberger while working on his master’s degree, when a Schlumberger geologist came to China to hike from the original beginning of the Great Wall. “I was her guide in Jiayuguan, and she told me about her work experience in the USA, Egypt, and Africa. Her stories intrigued me; I‘d worked and lived only in one small city in western China. I’d always wanted to travel and I enjoy teamwork in a multicultural environment.

“I joined Schlumberger as a reservoir engineer in the Data & Consulting Services segment, assigned to three locations in China. After a promotion to Reservoir Domain Champion I was transferred first to the Middle East and then to my current location in Africa. The training at every step was quite good and systematic. There was much to learn but the courses were tailored for my jobs.”
