The Gas Reservoir Characterization Department is seeking a top Geological Modeler to join their world class team.

As the successful candidate’ you will have the experience to integrate all characterization data to construct 3D geocellular models. You will have extensive experience in subsurface mapping, utilization of various modeling applications, and packages (Petrel, GOCAD, and Roxcar).

You will have in-depth experience in geostatistical modeling techniques, be familiar with reservoir simulation, and the upscaling of geological models.

Minimum Requirements:
As the successful candidate’ you will have a Bachelor's degree in Geology, Geophysics, or Physics. A Masters or PHD is preferred.

You will have 15 years’ experience with 3D reservoir geological modeling.

Previous experience in reservoir geology, drilling operations, field development, sedimentology/stratigraphy, or structural geology is advantageous.

Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to:

Construct 3D geological static models.

Create subsurface mapping; utilize various modeling packages (Petrel, GOCAD, and Roxar); and integrate geologic, geophysical, petrophysical, and dynamic data into a geocellular model.

Integrate diverse datasets into 3D models for field development, well placement, reserve estimates, history matching, production forecasting, and risk assessments.

Work across multidisciplinary teams, and be required to assess reservoir simulation, and the upscaling techniques of geological models.

Make critical decisions, and solve any problems with regards to Geological modeling, and update and maintain geological models with newly drilled and acquired data.
