Geologists working in exploration, production and technology have been integral to Marathon’s continued successes worldwide. Marathon is active in several basins both onshore and offshore North America as well as in the following international locations: the North Sea, offshore West Africa (Gabon and Equatorial Guinea) and onshore Kurdistan. The onshore U.S. is an ever-expanding growth area, with exploration and development capital commitments within resource plays including Eagle Ford, Bakken, and SCOOP/STACK. Geoscientists are advancing these assets with 3D seismic technology and horizontal drilling. In the international arena, geoscientists continue to achieve positive exploration and development results in Gabon, the North Sea and Kurdistan. Additionally, large-scale exploration efforts within North America will allow Marathon to grow the business in new basins. With only about 100 geoscientists worldwide, Marathon geologists and geophysicists become responsible for key projects on their first day of work.
Geologists at Marathon contribute to meaningful projects designed and implemented to deliver significant opportunities and results for both the employee and the company. For the summer program, interns will be placed on interdisciplinary teams within the following organizations: North America Exploration and Production and International Exploration and Production. The intern’s work scope will be a new project that will directly aid in the subsurface understanding of the area assigned. Near the end of the internship, each geoscience intern will present their work to a panel of senior management who are responsible for making the fulltime or returning intern hiring recommendations.
Marathon is affiliated with numerous exceptional industry and university consortia enabling the company to adopt the latest technological advancements rapidly. As a result, our geoscientists have access to state-of-the-art technology and use the top end hardware and software. Every Marathon geoscientist has a Windows-based laptop workstation utilizing Landmark software including OpenWorks and DecisionSpace Geosciences, VoxelGeo, Geolog, GeoGraphix, GeoDepth, RockTrace, WellView, Petrel, and other key applications.
