This role requires vast experience in Geological Studies, where the incumbent will be responsible to identify hydrocarbons accumulations within the field and plan and execute wells to maximize their recovery. Also, he will Interact with the reservoir engineers to manage the fields properly; including mapping of reservoirs, integrating production/performance data and recommending remedial actions and re-completion opportunities.
Geological Data Interpretation & Reservoir Mapping
Provides input to geological and reservoir models.Produces field reservoir maps over key reservoirs, including gross and net sand thickness, net to gross, porosity, and Sw.Collects and analyse development well geological data. Development and exploration well correlations.
Prospect Generation and Evaluation
Uses geological and geophysical data interpretation to assist other team members and reservoir engineers to define appraisal strategies, field development plans, by-passed hydrocarbon pay, infill well targets and enhanced hydrocarbon recovery programs.Determines hydrocarbons-in-place by volumetric calculations, and provide input for reserve reports and certification.Evaluates all leads, prospects, and development well targets and assist geologists and reservoir engineers to produce a portfolio of proposed exploration and development wells. Analyses prospect risks and propose a ranking scheme to help determine a drilling program.
Assists geologist/geophysics team in preparing block commitment reports.Makes presentations to DMF regarding prospects and post well reviews.Assists with compilation of well proposals.
Mentors, trains, & teaches junior staff and non-geo-staff in geological and geophysical techniques, including Petrel modelling.
A degree in Geology or Geophysics and knowledge of interdisciplinary geosciences. An advanced degree is preferable.
A thorough knowledge of geological and physical principles and seismic interpretation. A mathematical background is important.
5 to 10 years plus experience in hydrocarbon development, most of which gained in an Oil and Gas company working as a geoscientist.
The holder should have considerable experience in development geology, reservoir mapping, seismic interpretation, prospect generation and evaluation, and should have participated in drilling many wells.
