• This is an advisory/discipline lead role and will involve a high level of interaction with various stakeholders, strong communication and relationship management skills will be required.

• To lead and help develop more junior members of the team, as such previous experience in a leadership role will be advantageous.

• 2D and 3D seismic interpretation including the generation of relevant time, depth, velocity and attribute maps

• Integration of seismic interpretation with geological models, particularly in deep water depositional systems

• Interpretation of 3D fault surfaces and creation of coherent structural models

• Interaction with well geologist during drilling of exploration wells to update interpretations

• Identify drilling targets for brownfield redevelopment and near-field exploration.

• Provide input to the justification, planning and review of drilling opportunities.

• Work with other subsurface staff on the construction and maintenance of subsurface field models, and in the estimation of remaining hydrocarbon resource potential and perform related risk assessments.

• Work with subsurface and drilling personnel to mature well locations to drill ready status, ensuring the highest quality drilling program is prepared.

• Take an active role in reservoir and management strategy development.




• MSc or PhD in Geophysics

• 25+ years of experience primarily in seismic interpretation with a solid understanding of rock physics, along with broad technical experience in hydrocarbon exploration

• Demonstrable work experience within Petroleum Geoscience, acquired in a variety of SE Asian and geological settings, the majority of which would have been gained with an Operator.

• Proven experience working with inverted and AVO seismic volumes.

• Detailed knowledge of production and development geoscience methods with a proven track record of successful projects.

• Sound understanding of the petroleum system.

• Significant work experience with geophysical software applications; knowledge of Petrel an advantage.

• Hands-on experience of generating synthetic seismograms and conducting depth conversion.

• Sound understanding of seismic interpretation workflows and techniques used to identify areas of likely bypassed oil.

• Working knowledge of petrophysical interpretation, static model building, and reservoir engineering techniques would be beneficial, as the position involves work within a multidisciplinary team.

• Prior experience of managing seismic acquisition and/or processing projects would be an advantage.




• Good communication skills in English (read, written and spoken)
