Carbon Capture Process Engineer

For more than 20 years, Schlumberger has been involved in CCS projects around the world, helping customers reduce emissions by providing services and technologies for permanent underground sequestration of CO2.

Recently,Schlumberger New Energy has started exploring ways to go beyond our traditional offering and directly partner with emitters to assess, develop, and operate entire CCS value chains. The scope of collaboration goes beyond subsurface requirements and includes project economics, technology selection, business models, and permitting. We're designing new partnerships and business models with a focus on

  • exploring and enabling low-cost projects in strategic locations
  • creating partnerships with industry leaders
  • seeking scale and efficiency by enabling CCS hubs.

Schlumberger New Energy is partnering with leaders in a range of strategic sectors to demonstrate carbon solutions across a wide range of projects. Through our portfolio of CCS initiatives, we support businesses and governments in facing today's challenges of minimizing environmental impact while undertaking the transformations necessary to provide the global energy, materials, and infrastructure needed to sustain the growing societal demands of the future.
