Geoscientist in Moscow, Russia

at ExxonMobil
Location Moscow, United States
Date Posted October 22, 2020
Category Geophysicist
Job Type Permanent


Primary Job Function
ExxonMobil is interested in finding outstanding senior geoscientists to join the Moscow Exploration Team.
Job Role Responsibilities
The candidate is expected to have the ability to integrate key geoscience and reservoir engineering data and design work plans to develop drilling opportunities and execute production programs. The Production Opportunity Generation and Optimization role requires the candidate work across multi-functional groups to add value by identifying and characterizing opportunities that will positively impact field production or profitability. Opportunities occur at the wellbore, reservoir, asset, and acreage capture scales and can include: new acreage acquisition, field extension, infill and step-out drilling, recompletion and workovers, secondary or enhanced recovery methods, facility debottlenecking, application of new technologies, reevaluation of previously uneconomic opportunities, and acquisition or divestiture. The candidate also requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory and contractual obligations that impact the opportunity generation process. 

Experience of detailed reservoir and compartment  seismic mapping, with the ability to identify structural and stratigraphic traps based on sound structural and stratigraphic principles
Characterization of subsurface scenarios -  integration of seismic interpretation, well log data and correlations with formation evaluation analysis to develop reservoir distribution, reservoir quality and trap definition scenarios
Experience in placement of  drill well locations and drilling sequence to optimize economic recovery potential and field development scenarios
Participate in the commercial evaluation of opportunities, determine priorities and actions
Manage opportunities from initial concept to drilling (acreage capture, new drills, rig-lines, re-entries, work-overs, etc.)
Evaluate post-drill results and quantify impact to development strategy and asset reserves to narrow the range of development scenarios and reserves uncertainty
Prediction of dynamic recovery and  connectivity analysis to understand the distribution of compartments and flow units with integration of dynamic data
Experience in participation of building reservoir models to address multiple possible development scenarios, to inform changes to well spacing/flood patterns, modifications to wellbore design and completion strategies. Ability to Integrate new data (e.g., technical studies, new seismic, well results, core, SCAL) and incorporation into reservoir model updates and subsequent depletion plans
Field reserves assessment skills for planning and reporting purposes
Understand key engineering value drivers for opportunity development, knowledgeable on surveillance, simulation and completion methodologies

Job Requirements
Candidates should have a BS, MA/MS and /or PhD degree from a recognized university Geology, Geophysics, or Physics (or related fields) and a minimum of 7 years of industry experience
Strong computational and analytical skills
Proficiency in English and strong communication skills
Willing to travel internationally including offshore, based on business needs
CV must be submitted in English
