As one of the world’s largest fully integrated energy enterprises, Saudi Aramco not only looks for individuals who can meet our expectations, but for those individuals who can exceed them. Our intent is to become the world’s leading integrated energy and chemicals company.
The Upstream Professional Development Center (UPDC) is actively seeking a top Geophysicist to address all training needs of the upstream Geophysics discipline; with a special interest in candidates who are experienced seismic interpreters and the applications of seismic inversion, rock physics, and other seismic attributes such as AVO, and seismic anisotropy in Oil and Gas related Geophysics.
As the successful candidate, you will work within a team of technical advisors with broad geophysics experiences and specialties to develop and deliver a wide range of professional development programs and courses targeting Saudi Aramco geophysicists of all levels.
You will work closely with other technical advisors from other disciplines including geologists, reservoir engineers, drilling engineers, production engineers, petrophysicists, unconventional resources, and facilities engineers, in the development of multidisciplinary training programs.
As the successful candidate, you will hold a bachelor’s degree in Geophysics. Other related degrees in Earth Sciences may be considered. An MSc and/or PhD degree in Geophysics is desirable or alternative disciplines including physics, geology or engineering.
You will have a minimum of 15 years industry experience working on Exploration & Development Geophysical projects and operations that includes 10 years or more of recent active technical roles.
Preferably, you will have a wide range of Geophysical disciplines with good experience in seismic interpretation (e.g., prospect generation and/or reservoir characterization).
A practical knowledge and application of rock physics, seismic inversion, and seismic attributes such as AVO, fluids substitution, and seismic anisotropy are desirable.
Experience in training delivery, mentoring, and development of training programs for Geophysics at all levels is required.
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Enhance the upstream groups’ job family curricula for early career, mid-career and senior professionals.
