Req Number: 18739BR
We are seeking a Reservoir Geophysicist to join our Northern Area Reservoir Characterization Department.
Your primary role will be to perform detailed reservoir characterization using advanced geophysical analyses to support future field development, platform evaluation and well planning/drilling. The analyses include integration of well rock physics property and appropriate seismic attributes, post-stack/ pre-stack inversion to generate seismically driven reservoir property distribution maps, and detailed structural and stratigraphic interpretation. You will also perform pre-stack/ post-stack seismic modeling to help calibrate/ QC seismic data processing, seismic attributes and seismic inversion products.
As the successful candidate, you will hold a bachelor’s degree in geophysics or applied geophysics. An advance degree is preferred.
You will have 8 years of solid experience as a Development Geophysicist/Reservoir Geophysicist with the last four years specializing in advanced geophysical analyses for reservoir characterization.
You will possess strong technical skills and knowledge in seismic structural interpretation and seismic stratigraphic interpretation (sequence stratigraphy), seismic attributes analyses, and modeling demonstrated through actual work experiences. Skills in pre-stack/post-stack modeling and seismic inversion would be preferable.
You will should also have had hands-on experience using 3D seismic interpretation software (Landmark DSG, Petrel, etc.) and some advanced geophysical software; e.g., Jason Geoscience, Hampson-Russel, Well-Seismic Fusion, dGB, etc.
Mapping technique experience is necessary.
You will also demonstrate a good understanding of seismic data acquisition and processing and well log data analysis.
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Seismic interpretation (3D and 2D data), horizon picking, Interpretation data QC, and structural mapping of complex carbonate and siliciclastic reservoirs.
Characterization and mapping of fault and fractures at reservoir levels. Generate and utilize seismic attributes for better characterizing of fractures, faults, and other structural, stratigraphic and sedimentary features.
Gravity and magnetic data handling and interpretation.
Generate time and depth grids at different reservoir levels, generation of synthetics.
Handle pre-stack/post-stack data and seismic inversion.
Active and regular interaction with Reservoir Geologists, Operation Geologists, Reservoir Engineers, Sedimentologists, and Log Analysts.
Handle regular interaction for processing/reprocessing of seismic data.
Train and mentor junior staff members.
Saudi Aramco’s Exploration & Producing (E&P) business line oversees the world’s largest reserves of conventional crude oil, and the fourth-largest reserves of natural gas. The Company’s reserves portfolio include Ghawar, the world’s largest onshore oil field, and Safaniya, the largest offshore field. Company geologists are actively seeking additional reserves in many areas of the Kingdom, offshore in the Gulf and the Red Sea and onshore in the deserts and mountains. Petroleum engineers and earth scientists in E&P work with cutting-edge technology to manage and produce these reserves, including 3D visualization, reservoir simulation and remote geosteering of multilateral wells. The Company’s Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center, or EXPEC, is home to one of the industry’s most powerful computer centers. Research and development into subsurface upstream technology is conducted at the EXPEC Advanced Research Center. For more than two decades in a row, Saudi Aramco has been ranked the No. 1 oil company in the world by Petroleum Intelligence Weekly, a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the men and women of Exploration & Producing.
