Job Title : SR. GEOPHYSICISTReference Code : OG-7001063CompanyQatar Petroleum (QP) is a state-owned public corporation established byEmiri Decree No. 10 in 1974. It is responsible for all phases of the oiland gas industry in the State of Qatar.The principal activities of QP, its subsidiaries and joint ventures arethe exploration, production, local and international sale of crude oil,natural gas and gas liquids, refined products, synthetic fuels,petrochemicals, fuel additives, fertilizers, liquefied natural gas(LNG), steel and aluminium.QPs strategy of conducting hydrocarbon exploration and development isthrough Exploration and Production Sharing Agreements (EPSA) andDevelopment and Production Sharing Agreements (DPSA) concluded withmajor international oil and gas companies.The operations and activities of QP and its affiliates are conducted atvarious onshore locations, including Doha, Dukhan and the Mesaieed andRas Laffan Industrial Cities, as well as offshore areas, including HalulIsland, offshore production stations, drilling platforms and the NorthField.Thriving on a spirit of enterprise, each of our joint ventures isunderpinned by transparency, innovation and high standards of qualityand service. At Qatar Petroleum, we are committed to one thing aboveall: Excellence.DepartmentOPERATED OFFSHORE OIL FIELD DEVELOPMENTPrimary purpose of jobPlan, supervise, coordinate and control the collection, analysis and evaluation of geophysical data for well and reservoir studies in order to generate appropriate field development plans. Provide geophysical support for QP oil fields. Conduct reservoir management activities. Participate in interdisciplinary reservoir study teams. Develop and mentor less experienced staff. Review technical work performed by geophysicists. The principal accountabilities include:• Responsible for detailed seismic interpretation, structural framework evaluations and mapping of carbonate reservoir architecture for input to 3D geological models.• Builds velocity models and capable of carrying out different techniques in time-depth conversion.• Conducts studies in seismic attribute analysis, AVO, seismic inversion, rock physics and seismic facies analysis.• Performs detailed geo-hazard analysis for well planning and contributes to well proposals and prognosis• Recommends geophysical data acquisition to support studies and drilling activities and reviews and evaluate the results of geophysical studies by third parties and participates in design and planning of seismic acquisition.• Contributes to well planning for an upcoming development drilling program• Develops geophysical standards and workflows manages the seismic interpretation software, Petrel and Landmark softwares• Reviews and participate in evaluating Stock Tank Oil Initially in Place (STOIIP) 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.• Coordinates management of, seismic acquisition and processing contracts.• Plans and lead on-the job coaching and development of Qatari staff in the discipline.Experience & Skills• 15+ years experience as a Geophysicist with a broad knowledge in all aspects of conducting geophysical studies.• Expertise in seismic interpretation and fault mapping of carbonate reservoirs, and integrated reservoir studies.• Skills in quantitative seismic interpretation including seismic attribute analysis, AVO, seismic inversion, rock physics and seismic facies analysis to map reservoir architecture and for fractures characterization.• Good knowledge of stratigraphy/structural geologic principles.• Experience of working in fields with fractured carbonate reservoirs• Experience with seismic and VSP acquisition and processing.• Be fully conversant and have good working knowledge of all relevant computer applications in his discipline, such as Petrel, Landmark, and Hampson-Russel software for geophysical applications. Additionally, a working understanding of the software used by the other disciplines in the team is desirable (Petrel, Techlog, IP, Eclipse).• Supervisory experience of 2 to 3 years and past work experience in Middle-East carbonate reservoirs is required.• Experience in the Petrel 3D fault modelling, reservoir geology and field development will be a definite advantage.• 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.Education• B.Sc. degree in Geophysics or Geology with extensive geophysics training. M.Sc. is preferred.• Should be computer literate and have extensive experience working on seismic acquisition, processing, interpretation, mapping, and geo-modeling software.
