High Performance Computing (HPC) jobs at Shell
High Performance Computing (HPC) in Shell is used extensively in the Upstream part of our business (seismic processing, reservoir modelling, and R&D). And because Shell is actively exploring for hydrocarbons across the globe, HPC is an enabling technology for many of our businesses, Joint Ventures and Operating Units.
Hydrocarbons are compounds comprised exclusively of carbon and hydrogen and they are by far the dominant components of crude oil, processed petroleum hydrocarbons (gasoline, diesel, kerosene, fuel oil, and lubricating oil), coal tar, creosote, dyestuff, and pyrolysis waste products.
Our HPC team provides HPC infrastructure services globally to Shell, with the bulk of our staff being based in Houston, USA, the Hague, Netherlands, Malaysia and Bangalore.
Join us and be part of a wider IT group that focuses on Technical and Competitive IT solutions and services within Shell. Our team sits within the IT Services & Operations (ITSO) function under the Projects and Technologies Service Operations Management (P&T SOM) department. We bring business value with reliable and secure operations and services. P&T SOM puts capabilities into the hands of end-users who are generating significant business value. The HPC team deploys and supports large Linux-based compute clusters providing highly available, reliable capacity aimed at users of HPC-enabled applications in Shell’s Geoscience and Engineering communities.
