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.

Taking on the role as a Wells Engineering intern means having complex knowledge in the drilling and completion of new wells, while also building on bp’s existing well stock. Alongside a strong degree in a technical field, such as mechanical, chemical, and petroleum engineering or a related subject, that means working with a multidisciplinary team, where you will deliver and grow capabilities for all engineers interconnected in this field.

Completion Engineers

  • Completion engineers are involved in sand control techniques in unconsolidated and low-strength reservoirs or fracture stimulation techniques in conventional/unconventional tight-gas reservoirs

  • Maximizing well performance and reliability, solving flow assurance problems, and ensuring completion integrity are all part of your everyday job

  • You will also have a role in the preparation of detailed completion programs. Lead completion engineers also take on assurance responsibilities

Drilling Engineers

  • Grow capabilities for all engineering related to well design, including the planning and execution of our drilling program.

  • Drilling engineers are involved in all areas of well construction.  Lead drilling engineers also take on verification and oversight responsibilities.

  • Drilling engineers are responsible for planning and supporting the execution of safe and reliable drilling operations.  Daily tasks may include casing design, fluid design, cement design, cost estimating and developing procedures for operations.

  • Drilling engineers work in multidisciplinary teams with other Engineers, geo-scientists and service providers to ensure alignment with business objectives.

Well Intervention Engineers

  • Intervention engineers are involved in the design planning and execution of a range of well interventions from stimulation, pump and tubing replacements, sand cleanouts, and wire line operations

  • They also have a role in the preparation of detailed well intervention

Wells engineering interns may get the opportunity to go offshore as part of their development.

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.
