Chevron Energy Technology Company, a division of Chevron Inc., U.S.A. is accepting online applications for the position of Carbonate Seismic Interpretation Researcher located in Houston, Texas.
This position supports fundamental research aimed at characterizing stratigraphic frameworks and rock properties of carbonate reservoirs from seismic data. The role is intended to facilitate integration across geology, geophysics, and petrophysics disciplines and promote an integrated approach to Research and Development in seismic characterization of carbonate reservoirs.
Responsibilities for this position may include but are not limited to:
Investigates a variety of seismic datasets using volume visualization and seismic stratigraphic interpretation techniques, and compares observations to modern and outcrop analogs. This work will be delivered as a "Seismic Atlas for Carbonate Reservoirs".
Collaborates with the Geophysics research community to integrate Carbonate Reservoir Characterization and Stratigraphy with Reservoir Properties from Seismic.
Undertakes seismic data analysis aimed toward investigative learning.
Actively deploys technology through written documentation, participation in technical networks and knowledge sharing venues, and contributions to Organizational Capability development as a trainer and mentor.
Supports Exploration and Reservoir Management technology management processes, and builds strong collaborative relationships with Energy Technology Company (ETC) technical services teams and Upstream Business Units.
Master’s degree in Geology Geophysics, or related Physical Science discipline.
Minimum 4 years industry or academic experience in carbonate reservoirs subsurface interpretation and reservoir characterization.
Demonstrated ability to synthesize and integrate geological, geophysical, and petrophysical data for subsurface interpretation at exploration and reservoir characterization scales.
Demonstrated expertise in seismic volume interpretation methods and seismic stratigraphy.
Sufficient understanding of rock physics and seismic methods to effectively collaborate in the development of reservoir properties from seismic (RPFS) and other integrated geology/geophysics workflows.
Demonstrated ability to effectively contribute within multidisciplinary teams and collaborates across technical functions.
Self-motivated with a high level of initiative.
PhD degree in Geology, Geophysics, or related Physical Science discipline.
Subject matter expert in carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy and reservoir characterization.
Advanced level training in seismic interpretation and analysis methods, and in reservoir properties from seismic.
Advanced level training and work experience in rock physics.
Proven effectiveness as a trainer and mentor in field of expertise and technology domain.
Project management skills and experience.
Relocation may be considered within Chevron parameters. *LI-JT1
