Job Type Permanent


? Minimum Bachelor's Degree in Geoscience. A professional qualification or advanced degree would be an advantage.
? At least 7 - 9 years of experience in oil and gas exploration, development and production activities.
? Possess good understanding of upstream operational requirements, value drivers and role of technology in achieving upstream business success.
? Good awareness of subsurface technologies such as in the field of geoscience, petrophysics, drilling, production technology and reservoir engineering.
? Possess excellent soft skills in decision making, relationship building, communication and networking.
Job Purpose
Plan, implement and validate geological program through established work process by performing geological studies, application of cost effective technologies and providing solution during field lifecycle phases of development, production and abandonment in order to support economic and sustainable development and production of high carbon dioxide (CO2) and high contaminants fields.
Key Accountabilities
1. Technology Development
? Plan, monitor and review geological technology advancement by studying and assessing in-house technology research and development, technology collaboration with partners, acquisition, outsourcing and benchmarking to ensure continuous availability of matured, cost effective and cutting edge technology solution to support economic and sustainable development and production of high CO2 and high contaminants fields.
2. Geological Evaluation
? Plan and implement detail geological evaluation, interpretation, stratigraphic correlation, mapping, structural cross-section by integrating and collaborating available geological and geophysical data to understand regional geology, reservoir architecture and heterogeneity, and hydrocarbon distribution in order to accurately prepare field appraisal and development well planning to support economic and sustainable development and production of high CO2 and high contaminants fields.
3. Reservoir Geological Modeling
? Design and perform reservoir geological modeling work by conducting systematic and integrated reservoir study using sedimentology, facies, seismic information and petrophysical data in order to understand reservoir compartmentalization and distribution, reservoir heterogeneities, properties, quality and architecture to provide accurate resource assessment and input to reservoir simulation for maximizing recovery at effective cost.
4. Field Data Acquisition and Planning
? Plan, design and supervise geological data acquisition activities such as coring and logging by identifying the existing geological uncertainty and evaluate the value of information to be obtained from the additional data in order to understand and manage the geological uncertainties for optimum field evaluation, development plan and reservoir management plan.
5. Capability, Intellectual Property and Knowledge Management
? Execute capability and knowledge management in geological discipline through development and implementation of internal procedures and also utilization of enterprise content management (ECM) to ensure retention of valuable knowledge towards establishment of institutionalized capability, exploitation of intellectual properties and providing competitive advantage in venturing into high CO2 and high contaminants gas fields globally.
