QatarPlan, perform, supervise and coordinate the geological and geophysical activities in order to update geological frameworks

and models for QP oilfields. Undertake geological studies of the reservoirs to optimize field development plans. Analyze

and evaluate sub-surface data and to establish most suitable geological models for utilization in simulation. Review/interpret

sub-surface data and generate optimized drillable well locations and well proposals, and coordinate geological operations.

The key accountabilities include: • Supervises and construct 3D static models of carbonate reservoirs for the purpose of

reservoir simulation and field development planning. Develop geological conceptual models to support structural and

property modelling.• Plans, supervises the acquisition of and analyze/interpret geological, geophysical and petrophysical

data for/from new appraisal, development and infill wells. Provide input into integrated reservoir/field development studies.•

Establishes workflows and participates in geophysical, geological and petrophysical study and operational peer reviews

related to well and reservoir field management and plans, identifies and recommends new drilling locations and subsurface

targets for producers/injectors/observers to optimize field development.• Reviews and participate in evaluating volumes

Initially in Place and updates geological models periodically as a result of ongoing drilling, production depletion and test

data analysis. Incorporate findings into Annual Review of Reserves and updates review as necessary• Plans and develops

geological inputs into the short term (drill/replacement well projects and drilling operations), medium term (reservoir voidage

management) and long term (field development and asset value optimization) activities.• Contribute to well

proposals/prognosis for new wells and update the geological models based on well results.• Initiates, QC and co-ordinate

in-house/out-sourced specialized geological and reservoir characterization studies and QA/QC geological data and

maintain geological databases in Studio/Petrel master project.• Plans and leads on-the job coaching and development of

Qatari staff in the discipline.

Experience & Skills

15+ years experience as a Geologist with a broad knowledge in all aspects of integrated subsurface reservoir studies and

well operations.• Expertise in building 3D static models for carbonates and fractured reservoirs using latest modelling

techniques.• Skills in field development studies, carbonate sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, carbonate and fractured

reservoirs characterization, geo-modelling and resource volume assessment.• Experience of working on mature producing

fields where the integration of production data has been used to constrain their maps and interpretations.• Experience of

working with SPE-PRMS compliant initially in place volumes assessment methodology.• Experience in wellsite geology,

well planning and operations, and well and reservoir management.• Supervisory experience of 2 to 3 years and past work

experience in middle-east carbonate reservoirs is required.• Be fully conversant and have good working knowledge of all

relevant computer applications in his discipline, including geo-modeling software such as Petrel. Additionally, a working

understanding of the software used by the other disciplines in the team is desirable (Landmark software, Techlog, IP,

Eclipse).• Desirable to have knowledge in seismic interpretation and fault mapping, well log interpretation, reservoir

simulation modelling and well completion.• Due to the complex nature of the job, expected to work independently with

minimum supervision in accordance with QP approved department policies, guidelines and procedures.• Should have

strong teamwork skills, and it would be an advantage to have experience working in a multicultural environment.•

Experience working in integrated asset team environment and development of the mature fields.• Must be able to

communicate effectively with peers, less experienced staff, field staff, contractors and management.• Experience mentoring

less experienced staff.


B.Sc. degree in Geology or Petroleum Engineering or Geophysics with extensive petroleum geology training. M.Sc. is

preferred.• Should be computer literate and have extensive experience working on seismic acquisition, processing,

interpretation, mapping, and geo-modeling software.
