Join a dynamic and creative team – top end technical work
Innovative workplace that promotes diversity, inclusion and flexibility
2-year fixed-term-contract with likely extensions
Oil Search was established in Papua New Guinea in 1929 and is the country’s largest oil producer and private employer. Over 95% of its assets are in PNG, where it holds oil and gas production and exploration licences plus a 29% interest in the US$19 billion PNG LNG Project. This world class liquefied natural gas (LNG) development, which delivered its first LNG sales in May 2014, has quadrupled Oil Search’s production and transformed the Company into a major LNG exporter.
Oil Search has a clear strategy to drive future growth. We are pursuing opportunities to develop additional LNG trains in PNG, underpinned by existing discovered gas resources in the NW Highlands, including the P’nyang gas field in PRL 3, and the Elk-Antelope fields in the onshore Gulf Province. Oil Search believes that there is presently sufficient gas to support at least two PNG LNG-sized expansion trains and possibly three trains, contingent on additional appraisal drilling.
A unique opportunity now exists for a Geologist and a Senior Geologist to join the business and contribute to one of the company’s top 5 strategic initiatives for 2018.
