BP’s Upstream segment focuses on finding reserves of oil and gas, developing the means to extract and process it and then consistently producing and transporting it to market. This involves using cutting edge technology to find the energy reserves, the ability to drill thousands of meters under the ground, designing, building and operating some of the world’s largest most complex production onshore / offshore facilities and finally being able to transport these fluids, in order to provide energy to the world.

Throughout BP’s field operations, petroleum and reservoir engineers play a crucial role. That is why we offer you the opportunity to be involved in the application of leading edge technologies such as top-down reservoir modelling to manage subsurface uncertainties and Field of the Future techniques for real time data acquisition and management. Our engineers are essential to the creation of value for BP. Their involvement in technical consultancy, reservoir completion design and data acquisition recommendation programmes means they can impact on production operations and optimize plant performance.
