Geophysicist - Unconventional in Dhahran, Ash Sharqiyah, Saudi Arabia

Position Description:
Saudi Aramco is one of the worlds largest fully integrated energy enterprises. As part of our continued growth, Saudi Aramco Unconventional Resources is actively seeking a top geophysicist to join their world class team.
As a Sr. Geophysical Consultant in an unconventional asset you will support the multidisciplinary team in identifying exploration and development areas for resource identification and maturation using all your geophysical skillsets and tools.

You will be required to support the operations team in selecting appropriate completions decisions (placement and orientation of fracs) and monitoring fracture stimulation operations with microseismic. Candidates are expected to be able to interpret seismic reflection data, recommend and incorporate all aspects of seismic modeling.

The geophysicist will partner with geologists in preparing drilling recommendations and will be expected to recommend seismic acquisition programs including the determination of seismic acquisition and/or reprocessing parameters.

Minimum Requirements:
Candidates are required to meet the following minimum requirements:

You will have a Bachelors degree in Geophysics or a related science as appropriate to the required discipline. An advanced degree is preferred and will reduce prerequisite work experience stated below by one year for master degree and two years for PhD.

You will have 10 years experience with at least 5-10 in unconventional plays including shale or tight gas, with some US experience in unconventional hydrocarbon basins required. We will consider candidates with more or less experienced depending on the quality of their experience. Other desirable skills include strong geophysical workstation skills, strong fundamental interpretation geophysical skill set, including well to seismic correlation, seismic mapping, velocity model building, depth conversion, 3D visualization, reservoir properties from seismic (RPFS) work flow, AVO analysis, acoustic and elastic inversion and survey design, regional geolophysical evaluation of unconventional plays, structural characterization of natural fractures and their impact on unconventional reservoirs, sequence stratigraphic analysis, unconventional play evaluation, geophysical support for an unconventional play or development, reservoir characterization in unconventional hydrocarbon plays (tight gas, shale gas, unconventional oil, and/or coal bed methane).

Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following duties and responsibilities:

Apply technical geophysical tools to assist in prospect creation, evaluation, and maturation of unconventional resources (shale gas and liquids and tight gas)

Use seismic interpretation, analysis, modeling, petrophysical tools and integration software packages to partner with development geologists in preparing drill recommendations.

Understand strengths and weaknesses of different packages. Apply tools in fit-for-purpose fashion.

Determine seismic acquisition and/or reprocessing parameters that would improve understanding of unconventional resource plays.

Keep abreast of emerging technologies.

Maintain strong relationships with clients and intercompany experts to leverage their talents.

About Us:
Saudi Aramcos Exploration & Producing (E&P) business line oversees the worlds largest reserves of conventional crude oil, and the fourth-largest reserves of natural gas. The Companys reserves portfolio include Ghawar, the worlds 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 Companys Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center, or EXPEC, is home to one of the industrys 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.
