    Petroleum Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Perth, Western Australia
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Woodside Petroleum (Perth, Western Australia) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There were technical questions as expected. Apparently, the questions were the same for several of us, so ask your friends for the questions if they've done the interview before you. Well, this changes from year to year I guess. So there were two interviewers, one was named Andrew Glucina and the other was a Graduate Petrophysicist. After the 3 technical questions, they moved on to some personal questions. There weren't any behavioural questions for me.

    Interview Questions

    • For technical questions, they asked about the p/Z curve from reservoir engineering. Another question was about why gas production from a gas reservoir suddenly dropped and what you'll do. They also asked about factors to consider when laying down pipelines to connect an offshore platform to an onshore plant.

      For personal questions, they asked: Tell me why you want to work for Woodside. Tell me why you chose Petroleum Engineering.   Answer Question
