Aramco energizes the world economy.
Aramco occupies a unique position in the global energy industry. We are the world’s largest producer of hydrocarbons (oil and gas), with the lowest upstream carbon intensity of any major producer.
With our significant investment in technology and infrastructure, we strive to maximize the value of the energy we produce for the world along with a commitment to enhance Aramco’s value to society.
Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations’ spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom’s vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.
We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.
We are seeking a CO2 Storage Geoscientists to join Western Area & Strategic Exploration Department. The Western Area & Strategic Exploration Department (WA&SED) responsible for the hydrocarbon & non-hydrocarbon resources through strategic & sustainable exploration programs that integrate the best talent, optimal processes and leading-edge technologies in a safe and cost-effective manner. A qualified candidate will be part of a competent team of geoscientists, work collaboratively to maintain a healthy portfolio for CO2 storage. Technical responsibilities include all aspects of well and seismic data interpretation and integration to generate candidate CO2 sinks, associated with volume ranges, and risk assessment. The candidate is also expected to come up with innovative ideas for the portfolio, and to interact with multi-disciplinary stakeholders, in order to generate efficient operational plans to assess storage targets.
As a successful candidate, you would need to hold a bachelor or higher degree in Geology or Geophysics.
Have +15 years of experience in subsurface geoscience including several years of experience specifically related to geological interpretation, mapping and CO2 subsurface storage option mapping, selection and site characterization.
Have extensive experience in applying Clastic and Carbonate Sequence and Seismic Stratigraphy and Regional Geology using seismic and well data to document all scales relevant subsurface storage option generation, ranking and characterization.
Have extensive experience in petro-technical applications relating to the use of wells and seismic (2D and 3D) for subsurface storage geoscience, e.g., Petrel, Petrosys. You will be competent with basic well log interpretation and familiar with advanced logs and well data such as image logs, NMR, pressures and core.
Duties and Responsibilities
You will be required to perform the following:
Exploration mapping and option generation for CO2 storage in the subsurface geology of Saudi Arabia.
Interpret well information, making well correlations and working with petro-physicists as required to define stratigraphic frameworks and the properties of reservoirs and seals, and characterize in-situ formation water properties.
Participate in the acquisition planning and possibly interpretation of geo-mechanical information, such as analysis of conventional core, relating to seal integrity for CO2 storage.
Interpret seismic, including seismic stratigraphic interpretations for storage.
Apply sequence stratigraphic techniques to identify storage opportunities. Structural geology skills including fault interpretation and fault seal.
Understand depth conversion of seismically-mapped geological surfaces, considering velocity information and uncertainties.
Map making using industry standard tools.
Work in multidiscipline teams.
Our high-performing employees are drawn by the challenging and rewarding professional, technical and industrial opportunities we offer, and are remunerated accordingly.
At Aramco, our people work on truly world-scale projects, supported by investment in capital and technology that is second to none. And because, as a global energy company, we are faced with addressing some of the world’s biggest technical, logistical and environmental challenges, we invest heavily in talent development.
We have a proud history of educating and training our workforce over many decades. Employees at all levels are encouraged to improve their sector-specific knowledge and competencies through our workforce development programs – one of the largest in the world.
