SENIOR GEOMODELER

HOUSTON, TEXAS

Apply your advanced education and experience as a Senior Geomodeler for a leading Energy Company in Houston, Texas.

Using your advance knowledge you will be responsible for the following:

* working with geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers to evaluate and assure the quality of model input data and interpretations;

* performing or evaluating core analysis and core description for facies /rock type determination;

* building structural and stratigraphic frameworks that accurately capture flow unit/flow barrier architecture;

* performing 1-D to 3-D petrophysical modeling of facies/rock types, porosity, initial water saturation, and permeability;

* building multiple model realizations and scenarios to evaluate uncertainty and related risk in reserves distributions,

* working closely with reservoir simulation engineers to appropriately upscale and history match models, 

* working with development geologists, reservoir engineers, and drilling engineers to optimize development planning and project execution.

The successful candidate will work cooperatively within a multi-disciplinary, integrated team, will proactively plan and undertake reservoir characterization studies and development planning activities, will effectively communicate information and evaluations to team members and management in a timely manner, and will be a mentor to other disciplines. Expertise or working knowledge of sequence stratigraphic analysis, structural analysis, geophysical mapping, petrophysical analysis, 3D reservoir modeling, field development planning, and uncertainty and risk management.

To be considered for this opportunity you must possess the following required qualifications:
* Advanced Degree in Geology (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) with 15 years of oil & gas industry experience
* 3 years of advanced experience in 3D geological modeling, preferably in Petrel
* Experience in integrating core, well log, geophysical, petrophysical, production, and engineering data into a coherent framework
* Experience in core analysis and description, lithofacies analysis, and rock typing
* Understanding of geostatistics and fundamental geostatistical algorithms as well as data and interpretation uncertainties and their influence on modeling and business decisions 

* Experience in probabilistic and multi-scenario reserves estimation
* Ability to work well within an integrated multi-disciplinary team
* Ability to communicate information and evaluations both written and oral
* Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously
* Good business acumen
* International travel required

The following additional qualifications are preferred:

  

* Experience with EOR methods helpful
* Experience with carbonate and/or fractured reservoirs (e.g., DFN modeling)
