The Company:
A leading of oil and gas industry.

The Role:
Your mandate will be to Evaluate seismic and well data in a fully integrated fashion in order to come to balanced prospect inventories and the definition of exploration drilling locations that could result in an economically viable project.
Key responsibilities will include:

1. New Ventures
• Assist in identifying new ventures or blocks for exploration.
• Technical Evaluation
• Assess the potential of the block from a fully integrated technical standpoint in order to compile a license application to the Government.

2. Exploration (after the Award)
• Ensure compliance to all relevant safety, quality and environmental management procedures and controls within the team to guarantee employee safety, legislative compliance, delivery of high quality products/service and a responsible environmental attitude.
• Geophysical Survey acquisition
• Assist the chief geophysicist with the design of 2D & 3D geophysical surveys for exploration and appraisal projects,
• Assist in the definition of geophysical data acquisition specifications and parameters to meet the objectives of the survey, in terms of topography/bathymetry, geology, overburden, play, prospect and reservoir criteria.
• Geophysical Data Processing
• Assist in the definition of data processing flow and parameters of 2D and 3D geophysical surveys for exploration and appraisal projects
• Assist in the selection and assess parameters during testing of processing steps, using knowledge of topography/bathymetry, well data, geology, overburden, and target interval.
• Assist in data processing QC
• Assist in the definition of special data processing requirements to achieve specific objectives, for example amplitude inversion, pre-stack depth migration, and processing for AVO analysis.
• Evaluation of Well Data
• Carry out a vertical seismic profile to correlate prospective zones in the well with the 2D seismic image.
• Interpret the 2D or 3D seismic profile using special tools to identify the prospective zones.
• Geophysical Data Interpretation & Mapping
• Ensure geophysical data is located correctly and loaded into appropriate software for interpretation
• Perform well to seismic ties, including synthetic seismograms, analysis of check-shot and VSP surveys, well log, seismic velocity data, and rock physics.
• Ensure seismic datum, phase, and polarity of vintage seismic data are understood and corrected where appropriate
• Determine seismic events and horizons to interpret, on basis of reservoir definition, geology, seismic response, and depth conversion method
• Interpret multiple horizons, faults, produce time maps, carry out appropriate depth conversion and produce depth maps.
• Carry out geophysical attribute analysis, interpret results of special processing such as coherency, amplitude inversion, AVO analysis and seismic geomorphology
• Provide input to geological and reservoir models, including maps of reservoir parameters for development projects
• Prospects Generation and Evaluation
• Work together with other specialist in the Exploration department to come to a fully integrated evaluation of the basins, hydrocarbon plays and leads and prospects along the lines of PBE workflows.
• Apply modern volume interpretation techniques on 3D seismic datasets and properly integrate 2D and 3D data Assure close cooperation with development sub-surface staff to integrate field data into the Exploration evaluations and assist development staff to use basin wide and regional data into their evaluations
• Evaluate all leads, prospects and work together with other explorers and reservoir engineers to produce a balanced lead and prospect inventory.
• Produce integrated well proposals, present internally, to regulators and JVP’s.
• Identify future geophysical data requirements to help better define and upgrade identified leads and prospects
• Mapping Information
• Map seismic well data for a specified block onto the special software and analyse it in order to identify leads which can be converted into prospects that can be drilled.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
Knowledge :
A BSc degree and an MSc degree in Geosciences, Geophysics or Geology.

At least 10 years working in exploration in an Oil and Gas company as a seismic interpreter with excellent working knowledge of integrated seismic interpretation workflows.

Desirable Skills / Qualifications:
• Highly skilled in modern integrated seismic interpretation techniques with hands on experience with play-based exploration (or equivalent) work-flows
• Analytical skills, Observation and Investigation skills, G&G software skills, Data Interpretation skills,
• Mathematical and numerical ability
• Expert specific computer skills for own expertise area
• Excellent coaching skills
• Competent in other skills within the discipline
• Aware of all and knowledgeable of most cross functional disciplines
• Project management skills,
• Excellent communicator and team player with strong integration skills
