Schlumberger Limited (NYSE:SLB) is the leading oilfield services company for customers working in the international oil and gas industry.
We employ over 60,000 people of more than 140 nationalities working in 80 countries with annual revenue of $27.2 billion in 2008.
We are committed to excellence in technical innovation, teamwork and creating value for our customers, our shareholders and our employees. Schlumberger is noted for aggressively promoting employee career development and for allowing employees to change jobs (between functions, business domains and geographically) as much or as little as is desired in each individual case.
Geologists, Geophysicists and Petroleum Engineers can join Schlumberger via our Access Program. It is a structured program where you start in one of our business segments, working out in the oilfields as a field engineer for a period of 18 months. After this, you will move to our Data & Consulting Services (DCS) segment to work in an office environment to continue your petrotechnical career. Throughout the program, you will be exposed to Schlumberger technologies and mentored by a domain champion or a senior petrotechnical expert. The unique combination of field and office training will give you an invaluable range of job experiences, enabling you to develop into a petrotechnical expert in your domain of interest.
It takes a particular kind of personality to benefit fully from the Access program. You'll be passionate about using your degree in a practical context, to enhance hydrocarbon production. You'll understand the enormous value of working in the field, literally getting your hands dirty, alongside the men and women who are using the tools and technology in the most extreme terrains and weather conditions to acquire data at the "sharp end" of the business. The hours can be long. It can be cold, hot, dirty, and remote. So it can be very demanding, physically and mentally.
You must be prepared for the total contrast of working in an office-based role following your field experience. You'll be interpreting data, often dealing closely with customers, while still maintaining good contacts with the field.
