The Role:
As a petrophysicist in one of the project teams you will contribute to the petrophysical work content and quality of the study, including the transfer to and acceptance of the work by the customer.

1.You will provide all petrophysics input in a team working on pre-DG3 development studies. Such a team consists of staff from both subsurface and surface discipline.

2.Frequent stakeholder engagement is required both with the organisations, partners and the clients Business Group. These engagements occasional require visits to the customers.

3.As part of your role you will be expected to keep abreast of new technology developments in R&D, which will enable you to stimulate implementation of appropriate new technologies into projects.

Key elements of the job will include the following:

(1) Provide study support to the integrated team, including e.g. fully integrated interpretation of log / core & other well data, following relevant data / interpretations through into the (3D) sub-surface static and dynamic models, defining associated key uncertainties / risks & opportunities, core analysis & reservoir surveillance programmes, Value of Information - where appropriate.
(2) Provide operational PP support (this pending operational engagement of the relevant project team).
(3) Participate in project framing exercises, discipline and integrated peer reviews, and presenting ops/study progress / results to customers at regular milestone meetings.
(4) Pursue application of appropriate (new) evaluation (& data acquisition) technologies (where appropriate).
(5) Facilitate frequent communication with peers in your team and other teams, such that opportunities for synergy, knowledge & technology transfer are realized.


1.University degree in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Geology or equivalent technical subject
2.experience of relevant discipline with considerable exposure to conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
3.Recognized as technical authority in own discipline
4.Strong team player
5.Effective communicator; experienced & effective coach/mentor
6.High degree of achievement drive and initiative
7.A sound grasp of the latest PP technologies.
8.Hands-on experience with reservoir modelling and integrated, cross-discipline workflows.
9.Skilled in data QA/QC, data upscaling and assessment of data and model uncertainties.
10.Exposure to Value of Information methodology.
11.Experience in a Region, including involvement in the formulation, construction and execution of field development plans and participation in integrated field studies and reservoir modelling work.
12.Knowledge of well and reservoir surveillance and operational experience is desirable.
13.Knowledge of seismically constrained reservoir modelling, inversion and methods of incorporating seismic information into static models is desirable; - willingness to expand petrophysical skills into QI seen as a key enabler.
14.Experience in coaching of inexperienced staff is preferred.
