The Role:
Develop regional play concepts, coordinating work between Aberdeen & Oslo exploration teams as well as with other Global Exploration resources;
Conduct regional 2D & 3D seismic interpretation integrated with all available geologic data to develop a ranked portfolio of impact prospects;
Mentor other team members on use of geophysical exploration workflows and portfolio management tools.

• Basin-wide play evaluation
• Assimilate geologic and geophysical data to identify and rank hydrocarbon plays.
• Established pathfinder and prospect generator with experience in multiple basins worldwide.

Key Job Responsibilities for this position:
• Basin-wide play generation/evaluation along the North Atlantic continental margin.
• Network with Global Exploration subject matter experts and review teams to generate regional play assessments from basin to prospect scales.
• Identify and utilize global play analogues to mature European opportunities.
• Generate a ranked portfolio of impact prospects.
• Conduct 2D/3D seismic interpretation – with emphasis on reservoir imaging workflows, regional velocity model construction for depth conversion, sequence stratigraphy and reservoir properties from seismic.
• Effectively integrate G&G data (2D & 3D seismic, surface geology, well logs and potential field) to constrain prospect volumetrics.
• Utilize portfolio management tools and subsurface characterization workflows to enable capture of a robust prospect portfolio supported by peer reviewed geologic risk assessments.
• Apply broader geophysical skills to generate prospects (AVO, potential field, depth conversion, processing QC, and 3D volume visualization).
• Mentor New Ventures team members on regional play pathfinding, exploration workflows and prospect generation.
• Support exploration well planning and provide subsurface evaluation of ongoing exploration drilling programs.
• Engage with engineering, drilling and decision analysis experts to develop economic evaluation and bid level recommendations to prioritize license capture opportunities.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
• MSc or PhD in Geology or Geophysics required.
• Experience with multi-discipline bid round evaluations.
• Expertise with seismic volume interpretation applications/workflows as well as integrated geologic risk and volumetrics determination.
