Job Description

Where you fit in

Shell has been drilling for energy resources for more than 100 years. Today we produce oil and gas from more than 25,000 wells worldwide, helping meet the world's growing need for energy. The Fluid Evaluation and Sampling Technology team is part of Shell's Projects & Technology organization and plays a key role in realizing high value from the exploration and appraisal wells globally.

The team consist of 10 core members spread across Rijswijk, Houston, London and Brazil and collaborates intensely with Shell's subsurface disciplines, new business development teams, Wireline companies, and laboratories.

What's the role?
As a global Fluid Evaluation and Sampling Technology Petrophysicist, you will work closely together with service companies on Wireline activities. You have an end to end responsibility to ensure desired Well information is unlocked; being mindful of quality, speed, and cost. You typically support a Well appraisal by defining which information and activities are required, tendering the operational activities, contracting Wireline companies and planning and executing operations.

You are responsible for leading the effort in the operations stage. You work closely with the Wireline service provider but are ultimately decisive in setting up the Wireline formation tester, monitoring, optimizing and troubleshooting during and after the operations. It is essential that the - often highly specialistic - outcomes are clearly shared with the dependent parties and if needed processing further in the laboratories.

The role surpasses purely a simple Wireline activity. You are a key player in frequent dialogue with Shell's other subsurface disciplines and new business development teams to realize high-value exploration and appraisal wells.
