Signal Processing Intern – What do we hear from within a pipe? (6 months)



Clamart, France


About Schlumberger:

We are Schlumberger, the leading provider of technology and services to the energy industry. Throughout much of the oil and gas lifecycle in over 120 countries; we design, develop, and deliver technology and services that transforms how work is done.

We define the boundaries of the industry by unleashing our talented people’s energy. We’re looking for innovators to join our diverse community of colleagues and develop new solutions and push the limits of what’s possible. If you share our passion for discovery and want to find out what you could really do, then here is the place to do it.


Job Summary:

Schlumberger is developing a tool to measure with a hydrophone the noise within a wellbore. Of particular interest is the noise that a leak might generate, for instance. The scope of the present internship is to simulate numerically how noise generated by a known source propagates to the hydrophone and what the hydrophone would record. Such simulation will be performed for various configurations by varying, for example, the source type and location, the well geometry, the fluid inside the well, or the hydrophone location. The objective is to anticipate (i) whether noise sources of interest can be detected, given the tool’s specifications and, in the positive, (ii) what it would look like in the data, so that such signature can be identified. 


Essential Responsibilities and Duties:

A research prototype of such a numerical simulator will be provided. The intern will be responsible for further developing the simulator, and for running simulations for various representative configurations while comparing the simulated results against field and laboratory test data, also provided. The expected deliverables include an upgraded simulator, a set of simulation results compared against field or lab data, as well as a written report and oral presentation showing the key findings in terms of detectability and signal patterns, for various configurations.



  • Master’s degree – 2nd year or final year of Engineering School



  • Numerical modelling (e.g., finite element, finite difference)
  • Scientific programming
  • Acoustics
