Digitising the upstream
BP has set an ambition to become the leading digital upstream company, transforming how we maximise value from data
One way we’re doing this is by making fibre optics a global design standard for all our wells – to capture data deep in the subsurface and turn them into actional information
Over the past 2-3 years, a small R&D team has deployed fibre in >50 wells in Azerbaijan, designing sophisticated algorithms to take data from the well to inform production optimisation. During this time, we’ve added millions of barrels of oil a year
Now we need to scale-up: harnessing the power of this capability is so important that we have established a new digital team to focus exclusively on developing and delivering fibre optic sensing and analytics services for BP
This team will collaborate with existing and new partners to scale technology deployment building win-win relationships that grow the market.
An opportunity to join a new digital team in BP
This is an exciting opportunity to join a team with a mandate to drive sophisticated, breakthrough tech into a global giant
It will feel like a start-up, but with the impact and financial backing that only one of the world’s biggest companies can offer
The technical challenges we face are an order of magnitude tougher than the average data science and tech roles offered by finance and online advertising; they require deep understanding of physical sciences as well as computer sciences.
