Career Profile: Joyce

Schlumberger is a team and nowhere is that more evident than in the field, where our diverse pool of skills and expertise comes together to meet the expectations of our customers—often face-to-face.

"My current project is providing support to quick-look evaluations of fields where the client would like to start a development plan," says Joyce, a senior production engineer based in Houston, Texas.

"Since the client sees only one Schlumberger employee, sometimes they don't differentiate between our different skill segments," says Joyce, who joined Schlumberger in 2002 with a master's degree in petroleum engineering. "So I have to be able to direct their needs to our experts in the different segments."

"This is a great opportunity to show the value of our services," she says. "Not only in my segment where we evaluate well performance and ultimate recovery, but in other segments that identify reservoir properties, perform well tests or determine the most effective way of enhancing production."
