We are seeking a Geomechanics Specialist to join the Emerging Unconventional Assets Department of Unconventional Resources Organization.
You will have strong and diverse geomechanics experience for drilling, completion, hydraulic stimulation and production optimization and have to be proficient in building fit for purpose 1D to 4D mechanical earth models. A proven track record in predicting wellbore stability, pore pressure and hydraulic fracture design is essential. You should have an understanding of lab-derived rock mechanical parameters and their application to geomechanical assessment, and their integration with drilling records, well tests and open-hole logs to derive reservoir-scale geomechanical properties and facilitate MEM. You should demonstrate through previous experience ability of working within multi-disciplinary teams in an operational environment that requires interactive and proactive approach to predicting and solving geomechanics related issues which impact borehole stability, hydrofracturing, geosteering, and production tests.
As the successful candidate you will hold a Bachelor's degree in geosciences with a geology or geophysics major or engineering with a petroleum or reservoir engineering major from a recognized and approved program.
You will have Ten years of geomechanics industrial experience in oil and gas exploration and development is required. Proficiency in industry software e.g. Petrel, Techlog, Predict, WellCheck, FLAC, Elfen, Dynel, VISAGE, ABAQUS, Openwork's, is preferred. Peer-reviewed published work in the subject
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Conduct detailed geomechanical studies integrating all available data to optimize borehole planning, placement, completion, stimulation and production designs to minimize instability risks.
Build mechanical earth models from multidisciplinary data/observations to establish 1D models for individual wells to 3D and 4D models on reservoir/field and regional scales.
Mentor young professionals on applying geomechanical principles to support drilling, completion and production.
Contribute to developing and promoting geomechanical best practices.
Remain abreast of latest industry trends, best practices and technologies in geomechanics.
