Guide, and contribute to, structural and seismic stratigraphy interpretation related to 2D/3D seismic datasets in support of geological modelling and play analysis related to existing PSCs and New Venture evaluations. Understand and contribute to rock physics and seismic attribute analysis, provide inputs to seismic survey design, seismic acquisition operations and data processing as required for the execution of PSC work programmes. Specific technical studies will support a refresh of prospect inventory and include regional mapping for play based exploration.


Policies, Systems, Processes & Procedures:
Comply with instructions and controls covering a specific area of geophysical activity as needed so that all relevant procedural/legislative requirements are fulfilled while delivering a quality, cost-effective service.

PSC/Block Evaluation:
Provide geophysical interpretations related to 2D/3D seismic and attribute analysis.
Assess the potential of blocks from a geophysical standpoint in order to compile proposals to the Government for gas-holding, extension or award.

Subsurface Interpretation:•
Perform full structural and stratigraphic interpretation of 2D/3D seismic datasets, execute TWT mapping, perform velocity studies and prepare velocity models using both well and seismic velocities. Produce depth models and depth maps as required and according to the Exploration and Development Department requirements.
Fully conversant with standard LWD and wireline log types, and their use in synthetic well ties and attribute analysis.
Provide geophysical context to geological interpretations and models e.g. GDE work.
Generate new play opportunities and champion new approaches to generating prospects and plays that exceed economic and reserve thresholds.
