2015 Intern Field Trip

You will have the opportunity to be on location for a wide variety of oil field operations such as drilling, completions, stimulations, facilities development and gas processing, while interacting with engineers, geoscientists, technicians and field personnel. Field trips are designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of Pioneer’s oil and gas operations, as well as to allow the interns to get to know other Pioneer interns and employees in an informal environment.

At the conclusion of your internship, you will present the results of your project work to a group consisting of managers in your area and senior executives.

If you are interested in developing your technical skills and building a solid foundation for a successful career, Pioneer might be the company for you.
