Student Profile(s)

Nnanna Ijioma

I graduated in December 2017, left for Nigeria in January 2018 and had a very eventful 2018. This involved job hunting, travelling, volunteering and networking; which led to my current job.

Within that time frame, I also got to present an extended abstract at the EAGE annual conference which took place in Copenhagen. This was a result of my dissertation module which involved research with IKON Science.

I currently work for Schlumberger as a Completions Field Engineer.

In a nutshell, I prepare wells for either oil/gas production or water/gas injection after they have been drilled, cased and cemented. It is done via a combination of well equipment, production tubing and other accessories to meet our client’s objectives for their respective wells. It encompasses the design, installation and maintenance of well completions.

Prior to getting a job, I came across older alumni who were very helpful in during my job hunt.

Due to the diversity, I gained the ability to interact better with people from different cultural and national backgrounds.

My presentation skills, research ability and work ethics increased exponentially due to the numerous coursework which demanded a lot of smart work, quality research and the ability to concisely convey your findings in a few slides or certain number of words.
