Job Summary:

Grade K

Responsible for acquiring valuable insight and knowledge that can further the intern's interest in their chosen career field through gaining work experience through a carefully monitored assignment and learning about the business and the Company.

Job Description:

Location: Houston, Texas

As a first step, nothing prepares you better for a career with us than an internship. Our internship program provides hands-on, career-specific experience working full-time during the summer. You will work on real projects that deliver tangible benefits and measurable results. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to learn about and help to solve some of the most important issues we face. You will experience genuine teamwork, and work alongside highly qualified and experienced colleagues, while you work on live projects and operations, using the latest equipment and technology.

From exploration to production, our petroleum and reservoir engineers play a crucial role in bp’s field operation success. As a petroleum or reservoir engineer, you’ll be key to ensuring we extract hydrocarbons safely and efficiently from our global discoveries. You’ll be a vital member of our team and support the entire lifecycle of an oil or gas field, gaining exposure and experience through partnering with specialists across our business. This covers everything from evaluating prospects to define potential productivity and profitability, to developing which areas to optimize hydrocarbon production.

As a Reservoir Engineer, you’ll focus on integrating geoscience, facilities and well engineering data to understand hydrocarbon reservoir performance, plan field developments and optimize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons. Reservoir engineers also support exploration and carbon sequestration projects. Depending on your bp location and role, you will gain broad capability, primarily through job experiences in:

  • Reservoir and Well Performance: participation in the reservoir and well reviews; involvement in reservoir performance analysis, well planning, or flood management

  • Reservoir Management: setting depletion strategy, generating field development options, or reserves estimation

  • Reservoir Simulation: history matching or model building

Successful interns will be considered for a full-time role within our P&O Development Program upon earning their degree. Through this program, early careers will build their experience through challenging development assignments, develop a toolkit of transferable skills for the future, and have a dedicated network of support to help them succeed.
