Our engineers are problem-solvers. Collaborating with other disciplines, they identify, evaluate and execute the projects that drive our growth and success. Functional engineering areas within Noble Energy: reservoir engineering, drilling engineering, facilities engineering, production engineering and completions engineering. We recruit on-campus for entry-level engineers to participate in an extensive on-the-job training program that includes rotational assignments, mentoring and coaching.
Our geoscientists find the oil and gas that makes it possible for us to “Energize the World.” They create long-term value by finding new hydrocarbon accumulations and determining how to profitably extract those resources. The Geoscience department encompasses numerous disciplines: geoscientists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, oil and gas economists, and exploration support. Functional areas include: exploration, development and production, and subsurface support. Entry-level geoscientists participate in an extensive, on-the-job rotation program.
Managing the acreage we own or lease is a huge task, overseen by the professionals of our Land Operations department. This group, commonly called “landmen,” acquires the assets, negotiates trades and manages the acreage Noble Energy operates. This includes managing our leases and contracts, analyzing documents to determine ownership interests and calculate how to distribute costs and revenues, and creating the maps which show the mineral and surface ownership.
Operating from our trading room in Houston, marketers help secure the best prices and terms for our oil and gas production.

Within our Production Operations department, many disciplines work together to design, implement, and manage oil and gas projects to achieve our production targets. Operations roles include gas measurement, workover operations, pipeline operations, field drilling and completions, line locators, pumpers/operators, mechanics, roustabouts and construction workers.
ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH, SAFETY & REGULATORY
In our NO HARM culture, every employee takes ownership of safety and environmental responsibility.

EHSR professionals also ensure that we are in compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations and determine our internal standards beyond those requirements.
Our Major Projects group provides the common project management processes and systems we need to successfully and efficiently deliver large-scale development projects. This group identifies best practices and lessons learned, and applies robust project planning and execution and proactive risk management across all projects. Major Projects disciplines include project management, asset services and facilities, and petroleum and construction engineering.
