Geologist

Expand our understanding of reservoir potential

As a Geologist at Schlumberger, you’ll combine your understanding of earth sciences with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest logging technologies to determine reservoir architecture and hydrocarbon potential. That means you’ll use a variety of data acquisition services and logging systems to understand the structure, stratigraphy, lithology and compartmentalization of reservoirs. Every Geologist role is different and there are a huge variety of projects to get involved with. You could be helping clients understand changes in reservoir rocks during production or be responsible for determining the best place to drill the well with minimum environmental damage. Some of our Geologists help build the tools and systems we use to improve reservoir understanding. Whichever projects you work on, you’ll become adept at multiple software systems and work closely with customers to find innovative ways to solve some of their most complex challenges.

Responsibilities

  • Work as a key member of the geoscience team to evaluate prospects
  • Prepare surface and subsurface maps depicting stratigraphic arrangement
  • Generate structural models including: seismic interpretation and analysis, geologic interpretation, rock property analysis, mapping, structural framework creation in time and depth conversion
  • Perform facies modelling

Geophysicist

Redefine how we understand the subsurface

 As one of our Geophysicists, you’ll apply your knowledge and expertise of the earth’s properties to enhance our interpretations of geological data and greater define how we understand the subsurface. We acquire huge amounts of often previously unseen seismic and geophysical data around the world and you’ll help transform it into the knowledge that powers better decision making and more effective, more efficient services. You’ll be involved in the acquisition, processing and interpretation of that data and we offer a range of career opportunities to develop your skills and get exposure across the data lifecycle. You could work directly with clients to help them on acquiring data or you could learn to master data processing in one of our state-of-the-art centers, working alongside talented colleagues to devise new ways of spotting new patterns in vast amounts of data from every corner of the world. Or if you’re interested in interpreting data then you could work alongside international clients where you’ll be trained to use our pioneering interpretation systems. Wherever you join us, your career will be yours to shape if you have the drive and talent to make it happen.

Responsibilities

  • Be hands-on in project activity to understand geologic and geophysical objects as well as client risks
  • Foster technical solutions, enhance project efficiency and ensure effective team participation
  • Perform quality control, monitoring and interpretation of geophysical data
  • Liaise with clients on technical matters and managing expectations
  • Support field engineers by recommending ways to deliver the most accurate, reliable data possible
  • Manage and monitor equipment to ensure accurate datasets

Petrophysicist

Drive efficiency by deepening our knowledge

 

As a Schlumberger Petrophysicist, you’ll use your skillset to make our entire industry more efficient by deepening our understanding of the volume of hydrocarbons present in a reservoir and their potential flow through the reservoir rock. You’ll combine logging data from multiple downhole sensors with sample data to determine hydrocarbon production capacity, lithology and fluid saturation of the reservoir to ultimately help us optimize its production. You’ll incorporate data from multiple wells and additional sensors to consider acoustics, spectroscopy and magnetic resonance to enhance overall accuracy or build a clearer picture of the reservoir by understanding its permeability and mechanical properties. The skillset you’ll bring and develop further here through extensive training will give you the opportunity to work on truly groundbreaking projects that define the limits of what we know about the subsurface. A large part of the role involves using the latest analytical software and explaining your discoveries to delivery teams so you’ll also gain a thorough understanding of our industry and the innovation that powers it.

Responsibilities

  • Provide in-house and on-site client support for petrophysical analysis software
  • Prepare and conduct client training courses
  • Document client enhancements and issues to make tangible improvements
  • Work with sales teams to plan and execute technical sales demonstrations
  • Master petrophysical analysis software to enhance our understanding of the subsurface
