As a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, Nexen is better positioned than ever to realize our central purpose – creating value by responsibly supplying the energy that fuels people’s lives.

Combined with targeted training, technical and career mentoring, you will have the tools you need to build a successful long-term career at Nexen.
