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.

 

Overview

We are seeking a Geo Mechanical Specialist to join the Advanced Technical Services Division of EXPEC ADVANCED RESEARCH CENTER.

The Rock Mechanic’s Group conduct rock mechanical studies on various formation to obtain critical data.  These data will be used by fractures simulation program to design the fracturing treatment and to understand the parameters that maximize the life of proppant in propped hydraulic fracturing applications. Also, these data will resolve the outstanding technical issues of the current wellbore stability problems in shale and bring new insight that can improve the execution of drilling operation and maximizing gas/oil production which will result into tremendous savings.

The Geo Mechanical Specialist must be able to initiate and lead technical services and apply research that primarily utilize geochemical tools to resolve issues of operational and intermediate to long-term strategic significance. In addition, should assist with planning and managing geomechanics capabilities and resources to support the operations goals with Saudi Aramco. 

Key Responsibilities

You will be required to perform the following:

Conduct rock mechanical studies (Sand control prediction, Well bore stability).

Develop experimental workflow for unconventional formations.

Provide new experimental methods for rock characterization, unconventional reservoirs, anisotropy characterization, wellbore stability analysis, hydraulic fracture design, core-log Integration.

Communicate clients with recommendations for safe drilling and completion for wells.

Minimum Requirements

As a successful candidate, you

Hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. A Master’s degree in the area of Geo Mechanics in recommended.

Have a minimum of 15 years of experience in Rock Mechanics with emphasis in Petroleum Engineering applications.

Are familiar with rock mechanical testing and equipment and able to conduct thorough data analysis.

Are proficient in 1D through 4D mechanical earth modeling, pore pressure prediction, wellbore stability analysis, and coupled reservoir simulation for production optimization.

Must be Excellent in research; supported by completed publications, invited presentations, patents, professional awards and honors, and professional society activities.
