About the Job

Directs and participates in geological activities in assigned fields. Accountable for acquisition and interpretation of accurate geological data and construction of conceptual geological models to ensure accurate numerical reservoir simulation, calculation of recoverable hydrocarbon in place, and optimization of field development and reservoir management programs.


  • Carries out complex analysis and interpretation of geological field data using advanced modelling techniques in order to provide input for the compilation and development of well proposal.
  • Provides regional structural geology, and restoration experience in a variety of tectonic episodes at basin/field/reservoir scale, including but not limited to the integration with reservoir geomechanic, rock mechanic studies.
  • Performs geological studies evaluation, combining petrophysical data, Facies description, core data, borehole image logs, Well correlation, and pressure data leading to construction of 3D static geological models and ensure the studies integration.
  • Designs and plans complex studies to identify new prospects, and the hydrocarbon systems, develops new play concepts, and qualified models of the subsurface. Studies include but not limited to the stratigraphic, lithofacies identification, diagenesis understanding, porosity and permeability distribution, and hydrocarbon saturation studies to characterize the reservoir.
  • Responsible for integrating geological and other well/seismic data and advices on formation depth, geometries of geobodies, geometrical relationship, form and shape of carbonate deposit.
  • Supervises and participates in geological reservoir studies aimed at constructing and/or improving geological models including 3D static models, and ensure models accuracy.
  • Provides discipline-specific technical advice, guidance and problem resolution capability in order to meet data gathering issues and required support by other disciplines team members.
  • Ensures contractors’ compliance with contract terms and schedules by monitoring progress and performance through regular activity reports and ensures the technical integrity.
  • Reviews and prepares study progress reports and ensures adherence to Company and professional standards and procedures established for such studies.

Minimum Requirements

  • Bachelor Degree in Sciences Geology, Geophysics or equivalent.
  • 8 years of experience in Petroleum industry including at least 6 years in Geophysical interpretation
