Description

Job Description:

As part of our fast-growing global analytics consulting firm, you will work in conjunction with scientists from industry-leading Oil & Gas companies to innovate and solve complex, real-world problems that drive business performance. Plus, you will collaborate with other high-achieving problem solvers from Tessella to create, develop and deliver solutions that truly make a difference in the world.

 

You will bring a strong record of Oil & Gas domain knowledge and significant experience developing subsurface-related software solutions. You will work alongside clients to shape our approach and lead the development of innovative solutions for the most challenging subsurface engineering projects in the industry.

Responsibilities:

 This role is targeted to a data scientist who has strong technical expertise in developing software solutions/applications in the subsurface space, not someone who is primarily a reservoir engineer who uses such tools.

 

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Liaising closely with Sector Sales Directors to focus on local opportunities in the energy market
  • Engaging with existing/prospective clients to build strong relationships
  • Combining domain knowledge and technical skills to understand the complex software/analytics E&P challenges affecting our Oil & Gas clients
    • Interpreting seismic and geological data
    • Modeling reservoirs
    • Visualizing big data (e.g., reservoir simulation results, production data)
    • Drilling directionally
    • Working subsea
    • Optimizing production
  • Developing innovative solutions to solve engineering and analytical challenges
  • Advising clients and guiding the Tessella team on technical issues
  • Creating effective work proposals (including costs and timelines) to secure new work from clients
  • Providing technical and project leadership to our team of consultants.

 

Qualifications:

A career at Tessella offers a unique opportunity to combine data analytics, domain knowledge and technical skills. To succeed in this role, you should have:

 

  • 7-12 years of experience in the reservoir or petroleum engineering industry
  • Applicable experience with both service providers and operators/IOCs/NOCs a plus
  • Expertise in reservoir modeling, subsurface well planning or production optimization
  • Masters or PhD in petroleum, chemical, mechanical engineering, or related field
  • A technical background in Analytics or strong skills in mathematics/statistics/science
  • Extensive development on E&P software platforms such as Landmark DecisionSpace or Schlumberger Petrel (Ocean plug-ins a plus)
  • Certification in Petrel Geology & Modeling or Petrel Geophysics is preferred
  • Strong software development skills, not merely a user of software developed by others
  • Open-minded and innovative approach to problem solving
  • Experience managing and/or contributing to multiple projects, while juggling competing demands
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to explain complex technical solutions to customers and colleagues from all backgrounds
