The Role:
The core responsibility of the incumbent is to conduct hands-on production geology expertise with a focus on the following:
-Synthesizing core, log, regional data into sedimentological models.
-Generating alternative reservoir realizations.
-Building static models using Petrel.
-Providing technical expertise in the full range of PG activities.
-Interfacing with the other PE disciplines (i.e., PP and RE) to ensure full integration and data/model transfer.
-Linking to seismic interpretation including QI.
-Ensuring IRM, core acquisition/analysis, etc. follow minimum standards.
-QC/QA of all static models built by the clients Petroleum Engineering department, both for models constructed in-house or by third parties.
-Managing reservoir studies and contributing to FDP recommendations.
-Operational production geological aspects while drilling development wells jointly with national staff.
-Ensuring adequate data management practices are in place.
-Although the current production portfolio of the client is dominated by clastic reservoirs, growth potential is identified in carbonate reservoirs, experience of which needs to be developed.
-Guiding and coaching national staff to ensure competence development.

Due to the nature of the joint venture environment, the major challenge lies where the clients staff are expected to act on behalf of both shareholders rather than on either one or the other. In this role, the incumbent requires not only excellent inter-personal and technical skills, but also effective communication skills to be accepted in the organization. After an initial acceptance period, that may take some time in practice, a successful candidate is ensured of the trust and cooperation of the national staff.
Overall, it has been the experience that one can quickly realize results and get studies translated into operational activities. In addition, one gets exposed to a wide variety of PE and managerial issues; hence, there is ample opportunity for on-the-job learning and broadening technical & leadership skills.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
-Seasoned PG with strong background in (outcrop-based) sedimentary geology/reservoir architecture and structural geology.
-Wide experience in integrated reservoir studies.
-Skilled in operational geology aspects.
-Effective team worker with good communication skills.
-Coordination/participation of field development planning.
-Flexible, open-minded character combined with patience and endurance.
-Pragmatic, target-oriented approach is required whilst not sacrificing structured analyses and technical quality.
-Good coaching skills of a multi-skilled team with varying levels of competency.

Development Opportunities
-Hands-on leadership in a joint-venture company.
-Staff development in a structured and formalized manner.
-Realizing business targets in a risk-averse business culture by leading from within.
-Inter-personal and inter-cultural skills development.
