The Oil & Gas Assets division of Halliburton seeks an Advisor to Principal level Petrophysics professional to join our growing, dynamic group in West Houston. Under broad direction from New Ventures senior management and with support from engineering and operations staff across all Halliburton product service lines (PSL), the Petrophysicist works within a senior, multidiscipline petrotechnical team (Project Development Team, or PDT) to develop and apply advanced formation evaluation techniques in support of the evaluation and development of potentially large, yet challenging oil and gas field development projects for potential investment by Oil & Gas Assets. The PDTs mission is to add value by identifying innovative ways to apply Halliburton technology, service capability and expertise within the context of reservoir understanding in order to define new, step-change field exploitation methodologies. Target projects for PDT involvement are typically located in resource plays (ie: tight gas, fractured shales, and coal bed methane) or mature fields having significant subsurface control, 3D seismic and/or other data that will benefit from detailed reservoir evaluation and advanced E&P technology.
The Petrophysicist will support New Ventures evaluation work by providing both qualitative and quantitative analysis of data relevant to formation evaluation and reservoir characterization. This evaluation work will require integration of information derived from various sources including open and cased hole well logs, mud logs, sidewall cores, full cores, RFT / MDT pressure test / fluid samples, mini-fracs, Diagnostic Fracture Injectivity Tests (DFIT), geochem analysis, and the like. Additionally, the role will also perform advanced geomechanics evaluation in order to make predictions related to wellbore stability assessment, formation sanding potential, pore pressure prediction, principal present-day stresses analysis, and mechanical property determination useful in defining barriers to hydraulic fracture growth. The evaluation work performed by the successful candidate will support efforts to quantify hydrocarbons in place, potential recovery efficiency, and completion designs by the multi-discipline PDT.
Requirements for this position are a Bachelor's Degree in Petrophysics, Geophysics or Geology with a Master's Degree preferred and minimum 5-7 years relevant experience. Competitive pay structure to be commesurate with level of experience and education.
