Exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience with BP Reservoir Engineering Team

4.9 of 5 stars

Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Everyone I worked with was always more than willing to put what they were doing on hold and work with me on my project and answer my questions. Very laid back yet productive and friendly atmosphere in which I loved working in. The internship itself was very well structured and I was given a great project to work on, and my project was a real world project not something just pulled off the shelf for an intern to do.

Downers

I was put into a role that had no prior experience for even though I did learn how to do my job eventually. I was forced to spend a lot of time getting up to speed rather than working on the project. Seated far away from my team and didn't get to interact with them much.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard, never be afraid to ask questions, and the only thing limiting you at BP is yourself

Sample Interview Questions

Given a well diagram with bottom hole and surface equipment pressures and asked "when will well stop flowing on its own?"

Tell me about a time when you showed leadership

Advice to Management

Better incorporation of Interns within teams. (This may be a specific case for me because I was told it was not a widespread issue) the Lunch and Learns were awesome and I greatly enjoyed all of the intern activities.

Would You Recommend

Yes

My internship experience with BP is second to none. Here, safety is priority, team work is outstanding and everyone looks after each other.
