They are looking for people that are more than just book-smart. They are looking for hard workers with stamina, perseverance and level-headed. Try and emulate in your application how you are already demonstrating those qualities of a field engineer in your part-time work, university societies, family, local community etc.

My advice to candidates is to speak to as many people in the company to get a sense of the culture and decide if Schlumberger is a good fit. The interview will require you to identify your strengths and weaknesses as a person so this will mean you should be confident in your abilities and find areas which you think you can improve in. Do your research on the different technical services Schlumberger provides.

Work hard but be prepared to be away from family for long periods of time.
I would definitely get in touch with somebody who works at the company before you apply and really get to know what the company is about, including the culture, values, what the work involves etc. If possible try and get out to the field locations and experience it for yourself to see if it is the career for you!

The best way to prepare is definitely make yourself be known as: 1. Having the desire to learn (training is crucial at the company). 2. Being adaptable with change. 3. Not being afraid to get your hands dirty. 4. Having self-motivation, because your career progression is up to you. 5. Being able to work in a team, but also individually when needed.
