Contract Duration: Permanent Hire
Start Date: 01 January 2019
Location: Doha Qatar
Reports To: Head of Geology

Job Purpose

Technical leader and contributor responsible for designing, providing supervison and implementing geological/geophysical activities associated with active field development, reservoir surveillance and subsurface studies including opportunity identification and generation to support well integrity, production sustainment and cost optimitization.

Key Job Accountabilities (Max 10, each unique, exclude generic)

Provide input on key geoscience activities, strategy, improvement initiatives, technology, sustainability efforts, and cost optimization opportunities to Geoscience management for consideration into Petroleum Engineering annual work program and activities,
Establish an accurate and complete geoscience databases including use of the Petrel software platform for smooth geoscience support of Petroleum Engineering activities. Integrate new geological/geophysical, petrophysical and well surveillance data, and update the reservoir description of offshore reservoirs,
Provide and produce geologic input to Company Development Programs including well trajectory planning, optimization of well locations, and well data acquisition requirements for both infill and appraisal wells, as well as carrying out post-drilling geoscience interpretation and evaluation to ensure Shareholders expectations are met and delivered effectively,
Develop, provide and implement geoscience assessment and evaluation results and recommendations to the Asset Surveillance Team activities and priorities with focus on improving the ASTs understanding of geologic controls on reservoir flow performance,
Pursue and promote geoscience ideas and recommendations to multifunctional teams within Subsurface to implement studies and projects driven by or significantly impacted by Geoscience knowledge
Develop, provide and implement geoscience assessment and evaluation results and recommendation on AST activities related to the understanding and optimizing waste water disposal including the reservoir characterization of the disposal reservoirs and their adjacent seals. Strengthen oversight with geological input for the monitoring of acid gas disposal and new technologies as they become available to ensure effective and safe injection programs are delivered.
Provide and implement the geologic descriptions and models required to support Company well-based simulation studies (iGEMs) and surveillance studies (e.g. Saphir-Impact)
Promote and stimulate the dissemination and integration of knowledge/learnings from the subsurface studies (Reservoir Flow and Fault/Fracture studies) to the ASTs in the understanding of the reservoir flow behavior, and identifying new well intervention opportunities for production sustainment.
