Aramco energizes the world economy.

Aramco occupies a unique position in the global energy industry. We are the world's largest producer of hydrocarbons (oil and gas), with the lowest upstream carbon intensity of any major producer.

With our significant investment in technology and infrastructure, we strive to maximize the value of the energy we produce for the world along with a commitment to enhance Aramco's value to society.

Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations' spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom's vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.

We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.


We are seeking an Acquisition Geophysicist to join Geophysical Imaging Department.

The Geophysical Imaging Department is an organization that supports Saudi Aramco exploration and development programs through providing timely quality geophysical solutions focusing on subsurface images and quality of reservoirs and prospects. The department works in a solution-based model that integrates different geophysical disciplines like survey design, acquisition, time processing, depth imaging, near surface modelling, borehole geophysics, potential fields, rock physics and inversion. Such dynamic model works interactively with clients, interpreters, to support exploration and development programs business needs.

As an Acquisition Geophysicist, your primary roles are to evaluate and design seismic surveys, test and evaluate new technologies, and provide technical support to seismic crews. The candidate must have experience in seismic survey evaluation and data acquisition parameter design for 2D and 3D seismic surveys, seismic modelling for survey evaluation and design studies, broad band high productivity and high channel count seismic data acquisition methods using the latest recording systems, and simultaneous acquisition methods. Also, you should be able to plan and design multicomponent seismic surveys. The candidate must have a broad expertise and understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of seismic acquisition. You should act as a technical adviser to exploration and field development teams and assist in training less experience geophysicists through discussions and work sessions. Having good knowledge about non-seismic methods will be an added advantage.

Key Responsibilities

You will be required to perform the following:
  • Plan 2D, 3D, and multicomponent seismic acquisition surveys using seismic acquisition software.
  • Perform advanced seismic modelling methods for seismic evaluation and design studies for different geophysical and geological objectives.
  • Test and evaluate new seismic acquisition technologies.
  • Seismic contracts evaluation and management.

  • Minimum Requirements

    As a successful candidate, you will have the following:
    • Bachelor Degree in Geophysics.
    • A minimum of fifteen years of experience in the geophysical domain. At least five years of this experience must be in the field of onshore/offshore seismic data acquisition.
    • The candidate must have strong and proven track record in seismic data acquisition.
    • The candidate must be able to conduct and manage geophysical projects independently as well as working in a team.
    • English language fluency with the capability to communicate verbally and in writing.
    • Excellent presentation skills.

    Working environment

    Our high-performing employees are drawn by the challenging and rewarding professional, technical and industrial opportunities we offer, and are remunerated accordingly.

    At Aramco, our people work on truly world-scale projects, supported by investment in capital and technology that is second to none. And because, as a global energy company, we are faced with addressing some of the world's biggest technical, logistical and environmental challenges, we invest heavily in talent development.

    We have a proud history of educating and training our workforce over many decades. Employees at all levels are encouraged to improve their sector-specific knowledge and competencies through our workforce development programs - one of the largest in the world.
