Do you want to be a part of our team?

In Petrolia Noco we build a culture based on collaboration, competence and value creation. We therefore aim to be dynamic, dedicated, competent and create value by working together.

We are currently seeking experienced professionals

  • Senior geologists
  • Senior geophysicists

Petrolia NOCO has been exploring the Norwegian shelf since 2012, and we will continue to do so in the years to come. Our recent acquisition of 12.3% of the Brage field signals a new phase and a new beginning for our organisation. As we expand our already promising exploration portfolio, mature discoveries to production, and add assets to our production portfolio, we are looking for talented individuals to join us in this exciting adventure that starts now.

Petrolia Noco is a company

  • where you can directly influence the company’s direction, and the success of the company is directly linked to the success of the individual and the team,
  • where your individual efforts are seen and rewarded, and your career development is directly supported through courses, on-the-job training, excursions etc
  • where you have the opportunity to be exposed to and learn all aspects of exploration and production, where you one day are a technical expert and the next evaluating commercial matters, do business development or pitching to the Board – or, if this is your preference, you deep dive on the technical side developing your domain expertise,
  • where you engage in the entire fluid journey from the outer boundary to point of sales, from prospect to production,
  • where your opinion matters and with minimal distance from idea to execution and from domain expert to Board and CEO,
  • where information is shared broadly and openly – vertically and horizontally,
  • where lower emissions production and decarbonisation are not only buzzwords but part of our strategy and actually in the line of sight through concrete, actual projects,
  • where we appreciate flexible work opportunities, and
  • where we are ambitious and hard-working while making sure to have fun in the process.

Our ambitions

  • We will be an independent license partner or operator of producing fields on the NCS with a robust platform for further growth.
  • We will extend our exploration asset portfolio success to the entire NCS, continuing to create value from exploration.
  • We continue developing an effective hands-on operating organisation to extract the maximum value from every asset through domain knowledge, smart asset management, and active involvement.
  • We will create profitable growth through smart reinvestment of cash flow from producing fields into exploration, development and acquisitions.
  • We will be a company with proven expertise in lower emissions license management and active participation as operator in CCS projects.
  • We will create value for all stakeholders, with stakeholders being defined as the employees, the investors and the society.

If this sparks your curiosity, we want to hear from you! Your skills and experience are essential as we navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
