Under broad direction, an Analyst I applies advanced knowledge gained via a STEM degree and internal training to perform detailed analyses of highly-specialized sensor data in one or two of the following areas: production, nuclear spectroscopy, acoustics and electromagnetics. This data is obtained from hydrocarbon reservoirs. The analyses are performed using highly specialized scientific methods such as interpreting algorithms and workflows that translate the measured data into hydrocarbon reservoir rock and fluid properties. The Analyst I compiles the resulting analyses and their findings in a report that is provided to oil and gas company customers. They use discretion in selecting the parameters used in the analyses that they perform and to determine if there are quality issues with the sensor data. Their customers are geoscientists (petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists) and engineers (reservoir engineers, completion engineers, production engineers) who use the analyses and findings provided to make decisions on if, and how the oil and gas companies develop their hydrocarbon reservoirs. An Analyst I’s focus is on analyzing data from a single sensor type while they develop their analyses skills. They are frequently involved in customer engagements to review their analyses and findings, but have minimal involvement in business development activities.
