Role synopsis
The Trinidad Region produces approximately 2.1 bcfd of gas (~55% of the country’s demand), underpinned by nearby existing upstream infrastructure, established midstream operations and long term gas sales contracts in the Region. The Trinidad Shelf exploration team has kickstarted a five well ILX programme with the successful Savannah and Macadamia wells in 2017, building on strong regional understanding of the Columbus Basin shelf fairway and supported by an in-depth lead sweep on the Phase 1 Ocean Bottom Cable seismic dataset. With an active well planning campaign, we continue to push the technical limits for seismic data with plans for further state-of-the-art processing to continue the search for additional exploration segments around our existing fields to maintain our gas contract supply. In addition, we have recently acquired a Phase 2 Ocean Bottom Node dataset in the northern area of the basin and plan to initiate further lead sweep work with our partner.The team is seeking an experienced Geophysicist to support ILX well planning, ongoing lead sweep and prospect inventory updates, as well as bid round analysis in the broader Trinidad offshore acreage. The role requires an integrated geophysicist ideally with experience in exploration common process and offers the opportunity to work in a fast-paced gas value chain business including new access evaluations, infrastructure led exploration prospecting/drill out and possible resource appraisal. The candidate will also be responsible for maintaining in-depth knowledge of competitor activity and fostering/developing internal stakeholder and partner relationships.
