Seismic Depth Imaging Geophysicist

Location: Saudia Arabia

Permanant position

Seeking a Seismic Depth Imaging Geophysicist to join Geophysical Imaging Department.

The Geophysical Imaging Department is an organisation that supports the 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.

Duties and Responsibilities
  • Design seismic imaging workflows to improve quality of subsurface images for a given geological setting.
  • Implement latest seismic imaging technologies to augment quality of geophysical solutions.
  • Work dynamically within the geophysical solution based working model by interacting with different disciplines for a common goal.
  • Interact closely with clients to understand their business needs and provide fit for purpose solutions.
  • Assess uncertainty related to seismic imaging work and share its impact on delivered solutions.
  • Participate in projects peer-reviews as needed to assure quality of work.
  • Work closely with developers, whether internally or through vendors, to provide seismic imaging technologies to solve issues like near surface, noise, multiples, velocity models building, and resolutions.
  • Present work to management and team members whenever requested.
  • Mentor junior geophysicists in learning seismic depth imaging through hands-on projects.

Minimum Requirements
  • You will hold a bachelor or higher degree in Geophysics. Alternative acceptable disciplines in conjunction with work experience would include Physics or Geology.
  • A minimum of fifteen years of experience in seismic depth imaging experience with exposure to recent related technologies is needed. Expertise could be with either a service provider or a major oil and gas company.
  • Experience in effective decision making in land, transition zone, and marine (OBC, OBN) seismic imaging.
  • Show evidence of having worked to implement latest technologies and design workflows for seismic depth imaging.
  • A wide variety of geological settings resembling different seismic imaging challenges.
  • Exposure to programming and software development for seismic data imaging will be considered a positive addition.
  • English language fluency with the capability to communicate verbally and in writing.
