Job Description

  • This position will provide studies and operation petrophysical support to the subsurface team. These support will be delivered through;
  • Provision of basic and advanced petrophysical analysis and studies
  • Design, planning and execution of formation evaluation programs

Key Deliverables/KPI - SMART - Maximum 5

  • Perform petrophysical multi-well / field analysis as part of integrated subsurface studies and deliver necessary input data for static & dynamic reservoir models
  • Performing petrophysical analysis of log data (single well analysis) and assist in decision making (P&A or run casing, selection of perforation intervals, etc.)
  • Planning and preparing, in combination with reservoir engineers and geologists, routine & special core analysis (RCA & SCAL) programs to reduce uncertainties in petrophysical analysis
  • You will need to prepare and be accountable for cost effective logging programs, in order to ensure proper petrophysical evaluation of drilled wells (open & cased hole; Wireline & LWD)
  • Coordinating & supervising the logging operations and perform quality control to ensure that Contractor delivers according to contract and evaluation objectives are met



  • Ability to compute and statistically analyse large data sets, and establish their geological and petrophysical dependence.
  • Advanced knowledge and experience of LWD, wireline, tools and analysis techniques. Good understanding of wireline logging operations (open and cased hole), uncertainty and its impact on evaluation techniques.
  • Field experience, drilling and monitoring of development and appraisal wells, openhole logging, mudlogging, geomechanical analysis, fault seal analysis and pressure prediction
  • Proficiency in computer based interpretation in a petrophysical software package a must and knowledge of Schlumberger TechLog software package is a big plus.
  • Must possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.

General Knowledge, Managerial and/or Technical Skills - 5 Maximum
