Under broad direction, a Geoscientist II applies advanced knowledge gained via a STEM degree and internal training to perform detailed analyses of highly-specialized sensor data from hydrocarbon reservoirs. The sensor data analyzed typically includes acoustic, nuclear spectroscopy, and electromagnetic measurements. The analyses are performed using highly specialized scientific methods in order to translate the measured data into hydrocarbon reservoir rock and fluid properties. The Consultant II uses their own discretion in selecting the parameters used in the analyses and to determine if there are quality issues with the sensor data. They compile the resulting analyses and their findings in a report that is provided to oil and gas company customers. Their findings include descriptions of the analyses steps used, as well as potential quality issues with the sensor data. The customers are geoscientists (petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists) and engineers (reservoir engineers, completion engineers, production engineers) who use the reports to make decisions on if, and how the oil and gas companies develop their reservoirs. Geoscientist II's integrate the analyses from multiple sensor types to provide more comprehensive analyses and reports on hydrocarbon reservoir rock and fluid properties. These integrated analyses reports are targeted to particular geoscience and engineering disciplines (petrophysics, geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering, completion engineering, production engineering). Geoscientist II's are able to provide these reports to customers in at least two of these disciplines. They routinely engage customers and have frequent involvement in business development activities. Their communication skills must include effective verbal, written, and listening skills. They plan and manage their own time to perform the accountabilities of their job duties. Completion of an undergraduate degree in a STEM discipline is required to successfully perform the job. Possession of a graduate degree in a STEM discipline is preferred. A minimum of 4 years of experience is required.

Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With over 50,000 employees, representing 140 nationalities, and operations in approximately 70 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction, completion and production optimization. Halliburton's fascinating and proud history reveals a continuous focus on innovation and expansion that began with the company's founder, Erle P. Halliburton. After borrowing a wagon, a team of mules and a pump, he built a wooden mixing box and started an oil well cementing business in Duncan, Oklahoma.
In the 1930s, Halliburton established its first research laboratories where the company tested cement mixes, began offering acidizing services to break down the resistance of limestone formations and increase the production of oil and gas, and performed its first offshore cementing job using a barge-mounted cementing unit at a rig in the Creole Field in the Gulf of Mexico. This was the beginning of what was to become the world's most extensive offshore service.
Halliburton took the initial steps toward becoming a worldwide company in 1926. We sold five cementing units to an English company in Burma, the start of our Eastern Hemisphere operations, and Erle P. Halliburton sent his brothers to open our business in Alberta, Canada. We opened in Venezuela in 1940. By 1946, the company – using its innovative technology – had expanded into Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and the Middle East and began performing services for the Arabian-American Oil Company, the forerunner of Saudi Aramco.
In 1951, Halliburton made its first appearance in Europe as Halliburton Italiana SpA., a wholly owned subsidiary in Italy. In the next seven years, Halliburton launched Halliburton Company Germany GmbH, set up operations in Argentina and established a subsidiary in England.
In 1984, Halliburton provided all of the well completion equipment for the first multiwell platform offshore China. Two years later, Halliburton became the first American company to perform an oilfield service job on the China mainland
The final decade of the 20th century brought more changes and growth to Halliburton. The company opened a branch office in Moscow in 1991.
The company realigned its work into Eastern and Western Hemisphere operations in 2006, and in 2007, divided its service offerings into two divisions: Completion and Production, and Drilling and Evaluation.
Today, Halliburton offers the world's broadest array of products, services and integrated solutions for oil and gas exploration, development and production.
