Job Description - GeomodellerResponsibilitiesTo build high quality static reservoir models fully integrated with the input from Geophysics and Petrophysics and where applicable from Reservoir engineering. Amongst other elements this includesa) building a sequence stratigraphic framework for the Field using regional data, in which all wells can be correlated.b) importing structural services from the seismic interpreter ensuring that all well data are matched and that faults and fracture are properly representedc) Defining key reservoir boundaries and flow units, correlate them and populate them with reservoir properties (Net thickness, porosity) in an appropriate manner consistent with the depositional environment.d) Determine the hydrocarbon volumes in place with associated uncertainty ranges whilst ensuring that all static subsurface uncertainties identified by other disciplines are properly represented and integrated. The production geoscientist acts the focal point for the volumes in place and is responsible for volumes in place database for the company.e) To provide Geoscience input into well proposals (including risk assessment), operational decisions, and uncertainty management and to follow the well progress ensuring, at all times, that unexpected Geoscience related well results are addressed as soon as possible and that alternative solutions are communicated and Geoscience input into mitigation plans is provided.f) To liaise closely with staff from the other development disciplines to ensure that high quality Geoscience input is provided into their technical work.To, at all times, look for ways to increase the value of the development through identifying new appraisal/development opportunities, smarter development options or ways to reduce costs.Requirements:A successful candidate must be a Geoscientist with a BsC or MsC in Geoscience with at least 15 years of oil industry experience.
