Software Engineer Intern (12 months) – Starting Summer 2024
Project: “Software Development support for Drilling & Measurement Desktop Applications”
We are a global technology company, driving energy innovation for a balanced planet.
At SLB we create amazing technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all. That is our purpose. As innovators, that’s been our mission for 100 years. We are facing the world’s greatest balancing act- how to simultaneously reduce emissions and meet the world’s growing energy demands. We’re working on that answer. Every day, a step closer.
Our collective future depends on decarbonizing the fossil fuel industry, while innovating a new energy landscape. It’s what drives us. Ensuring progress for people and the planet, on the journey to net zero and beyond. For a balanced planet.
Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, UK.
Stonehouse Technology Centre (SHTC) is the SLB drilling Centre of Excellence. It supports SLB through innovative engineering and quality-driven manufacturing, with portfolio emphasis on rotary steerable systems, Measurement While Drilling tools, Specialised Measurement tools and Rechargeable Batteries for Downhole use, and power source products.
Over 300 employees work in SHTC's modern, fit-for-purpose building in scenic Gloucestershire. The facility was constructed to handle future demand for PowerDrive tools with an efficient workflow that ensures assembled tools are extensively and rigorously tested before delivery. On site, tools can be monitored using state of-the-art hardware and connectivity that link SHTC to all field locations.
SHTC continues Research & Development investment for new technologies, extending operational limits so that clients can reach hotter, deeper reserves.
Description and Scope:
You will be developing two standalone applications:
We currently have a licensing application, which generates licenses for our main software (ToolScope). This is a desktop application, which we are going to upgrade into a web-based application. During the rewriting of the license software, the existing functionalities will need to be extracted from the legacy application and a database will need to be created all the licenses already generated will be sorted. This will allow us to then extend the application so that users can view and/or manage the generated licenses.
One of our highly visible projects, which consists of extracting data from downhole tools using Wired Drill Pipe network. This network allows us to extract data from a well at a high speed. At the surface level, we have an application called WARP which collects all the data in real time. The next phase of the development will consist of developing a simulator which will be feeding the WARP application with simulated data. The aim is to be able to isolate the WARP application during the testing phases without getting the firmware involved. The simulator will be a desktop application (WPF application), which will receive the connection request from WARP and then send data in real time as it is currently done from the tools.
Both projects will involve going through the full software development life cycle (planning, investigating, developing, and testing). This is going to be a collaborative work to develop two applications - desktop based applications in WPF and a web-based application.
A key focus will be the user experience/user interface as well as using good design patterns to make the solution robust and extendable, as well as unit testable.
Support the development of the license software into a web-based application as well as creating a database to sort the history of the licenses already created. Create a software simulator for our Wired Drill Pipe Acquisition Software (WARP 2.x).
