The Senior production geologist has the role of generating integrated predictive subsurface/geological models to address/resolve subsurface production challenges in addition to harnessing subsurface opportunities. He conducts and participates in Integrated Field Development studies to meet Reserves Replacement targets and the anticipated Oil & Gas growth in Seplat's green and brown fields utilizing appropriate technology and best practices to reduce time, costs and improve quality and standards. Interpretation of all available geological data to improve the understanding of the reservoirs/fields geology. Adequate exposure and competence in areas of geophysical/geological/reservoir studies, uncertainties management processes and hands-on ability of geological applications and software including Petrel is necessary.
Key accountabilities:• Familiar with the fundamentals of all Petroleum Geology specialists’ area (especially Seismic, Production and Reservoir Geology) and hands-on ability of geological applications and software including Petrel. Competence in a wide range of field, reservoir and uncertainties management, field development and data management activities.• Apply state of the art interpretation and evaluation technology in the delivery of integrated, predictive subsurface/geological models in line with the industry best practice. Working knowledge of seismic, production and reservoir geological processes.• Responsible for production geological input into all agreed studies on time, quality and cost.• Develops and participates in subsurface reservoir studies aimed at constructing and/or improving geological models.• Drive the Quality Well Delivery Process' (QWDP) for proposed development/appraisal wells and• update databases and maps/x-sections with the results of FRs and drilled wells. Coordinates and contributes to the preparation of well proposals, well resumes and End of Well Report of development and appraisal wells• Contribute to well delivery and reduction of drilling risks by providing accurate prognosis of geological information/boundaries, potential drilling hazards and advice during drilling. Delivering first class geological support to operations, drilling and workover well, etc.• Ensures that new well and workover proposals have solid geological basis. Timely delivery of robust and technically excellent subsurface studies and development plans.• Participate in technical meetings, make valuable contributions; write and publish asset approved technical paper/s. Coach and mentor other production geologist in the team.• Participation in Peer Review, Geosciences Workshops and Assists in integrating geological study findings with other studies undertaken by the assigned team.• Participation in Peer and integrated and value assurance reviews covering all aspect of Petroleum Engineering studies, Geosciences Workshops and Assists in integrating geological study findings with other studies undertaken by the assigned team.• Must be a good team player able to constructively facilitate, integrate and manage diverse intra/inter disciplinary studies, data and issues.
Minimum Qualification:• Minimum qualification of BSc. in Geology with at least 9 years work experience in an active operating E&P company. Higher degrees will be added advantage
