OGCI Emissions Reductions Internship Program

By Amanda Chouinard


Internship Opportunities in the Oil and Gas Sector

In the lead up to SES 2019,  Student Energy has partnered up with OGCI Climate Investments to provide 10 Emissions Reductions Internships for students! 


The Emissions Reductions Internships will provide the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in emissions reductions in the oil and gas sector, working on sustainable energy and low-carbon solutions. Ten diverse positions are available through OGCI Climate Investments and its member companies.

Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is a voluntary effort collaboratively led by the CEO’s of leading oil and gas companies. Member companies leverage OGCI’s collective strength to deliver solutions for a sustainable low-emissions future. OGCI members are individually active in their own sustainability work while collaborating broadly within the network to catalyze change on a large scale.

If you are passionate about sustainable energy solutions, want to apply yourself and learn new knowledge and skills while contributing to real work being undertaken in the oil and gas sector, apply now! 

The internships will be paid and full-time hours, taking place this year running through the summer months; though specific durations may vary. Please note that candidates are responsible for ensuring that they are eligible to work in the country of the internship and speak the local language.

Each successful candidate will also receive a bursary to attend the 2019 International Student Energy Summit taking place in London, UK from July 17 – 20.

Applications are due by Jan. 31st. If you have any questions please contact
