The Oil Industrys Best-kept Secret - A book full of inspiration and advice

Lauren Adams

Field Specialist, Wireline Services Baker Hughes, a GE company

I didn’t precisely know what I wanted to do with my degree. I applied to a few companies in the oil & gas industry. I didn’t want a research or laboratory role and was sure I wouldn’t be happy just sitting in an office. “In my world I’m still learning; there’s always something new to take on board and different challenges appear all the time. It’s certainly not boring!”

The only member of her immediate family to go to university, Lauren Adams completed a chemistry degree at the University of Aberdeen. Lauren joined oilfield services company Baker Hughes and completed specialist training in wireline engineering.

She has already taken opportunities to broaden her horizons: she undertook her master’s degree research in Italy during her study years and spent time working on a land rig in Canada to gain her first practical experience with Baker Hughes, before returning to the UK to work offshore. Lauren’s wanderlust has also been satisfied – since joining Baker Hughes she’s been able to work in Norway, Denmark and Holland as well as attend training in Dubai and Houston. She’s now a senior wireline engineer with the company, which today is part of GE. A member of the Women’s Network at the company, Lauren acts as a mentor to young engineers following her into the oil & gas industry. 2011 2007 Aberdeen University Great Scottish Run half marathon 2012 2012 Master of Chemistry Join Baker Hughes
