Job Type Contract


Performance of petrophysical activities associated with active field development such as: tendering for contract petrophysical services, formation evaluation planning, selection and supervision of contract petrophysical support personnel, on-site supervision and QC of offshore and onshore wireline logging activities (open and cased hole), integrated analysis of all log, core and fluid data, perforation recommendations, incorporation of log analysis results in geologic and engineering interpretations, maintenance of petrophysical databases, and mentoring of less experienced staff. Emphasis on ensuring Logging Contractor quality of service.

Mentors petrophysicists and geoscientists with less experience and monitors petrophysical contractors.

Key Result Areas:
Mentors petrophysicists and geoscientists with less experience.
Identifies, develops and implements training in Petrophysics for subsurface group.
Works effectively with reservoir, petroleum, and drilling engineers and rig personnel.
Identifies, designs and implements field studies, which will facilitate future field development.
Interfaces with shareholders to identify, develop and implement joint technical initiatives.
Participates in well planning and assists with development of pre-drill documentation packages (i.e. designs and provides logging program, identifies potential logging hazards, etc.).
Performs quick look formation evaluation methods in support of real-time decision making and provides input for selection of perforation and testing intervals.
Uses workstation based Petrophysical models to provide fully integrated field-study quality interpretations in support of geologic and reservoir modeling used in field development planning.
Performs operations activities during drilling (i.e. pre-logging job planning with petrophysical contractors on rig(s), training and monitoring of petrophysical contract personnel, interface with other Geoscience, Engineering, and Drilling personnel).
Provides operational and technical support for openhole and casedhole logging operations including acquisition planning, on-site supervision, QC, and analysis of:
- Formation Testing (MDT)
- Production Logging (PLT/RST)
- Cement Evaluation (CBL/VDL-USIT)
- Corrosion Evaluation (MFC/METT)
Maintains and ensures accuracy and completeness of petrophysical databases/ catalogs (digital and hard copy).
Contributes to the enhancement of existing and future petrophysical analysis models.
Makes recommendations regarding Routine (RCA) and Special Core Analysis (SCAL) work to be done for measurement of petrophysical parameters. Designs and supervises core analysis lab measurements in collaboration with other concerned staff.
Provides input to support development of reservoir surveillance strategies including design of baseline logging programs.
Designs and supports implementation of written input for post-drill well reports.
Develops scope of work for tendering of petrophysical services and analyzes tenders.
