Senior Geophysicist


About this role

• Accountable for validation of seismic interpretation database and all other relevant geophysical dataset. • Responsible in carrying out seismic interpretation and mapping for field development plans, full field reviews, for appraisal and development drilling, as well as support reservoir surveillance activities where appropriate.
• Lead the integration of geological concepts with geophysical data in the context of field development.• Identify new opportunities to add value to new and existing projects/assets.
• Present subsurface geophysical interpretation results for field reviews, and prepare well proposals, end of well reports and similar technical documentation. • Responsible for developing the skill sets of more junior geophysicists.
• To conduct in-house 3D seismic interpretation and attribute analysis by integrating regional and field geological and geophysical data/information. • To perform seismic to well tie, 3D seismic horizons mapping, 3D structural interpretation and quantify associated uncertainty as input to the static modelling. Continuously monitor and update in-house evaluation, study and any out-sourced studies.
• Where applicable, utilize/integrate quantitative interpretation techniques such as seismic inversion, seismic reservoir characterization, etc., to optimize reservoir understandings. • Build velocity model for time to depth conversion with a good understanding as determined from VSP and geological data.
• To assist in well correlations within and between fields as an integrated work with the team Stratigrapher & Geomodeller.• To lead in planning and optimizing well trajectories using seismic data. Prepare well prognosis from geophysical perspective in planning phase. Then provide geophysics support during drilling operations.
• To recommend/identify well to acquire new VSP data and relevant geophysical logs during the BP. Provide logging requirement during well prognosis, monitor logging, evaluate logging quality with the team Petrophysicist, quality check on the processing of VSP and required logs quality, reviewed final output and contractors’ documentation. Then, ensure validated data is properly loaded onto geophysical database.
