Job description

We are seeking a Development Geologist, with expertise in reservoir characterization and development of tight sand plays.
This Division is responsible for the characterization and development of an established tight sand play in the Kingdom, through initiating and executing integrated subsurface projects to guide development campaigns in order to meet gas production targets from unconventional resources. In addition, the division offers support to production engineering for stimulation and hydraulic fracturing operations.
Tight Sand Development Geologist primary role will be to generate and interpret fit-for-purpose geological models for reservoir characterization, field development plan and hydrocarbon in–place assessment by integrating sedimentology, petrophysics and geomechanics as well as drilling, stimulation, and production.
Candidate will be required to perform and demonstrate the following:

  • Use geological models to recommend placement of wells and supplementary processes to enhance production & Integrate & utilize geological & engineering data to optimize field development strategy.
  • Identify opportunities for workovers, infill drilling, and multi-well pad optimization.
  • Perform complex geological assignments such as resource assessments and create volumetric calculations to determine reserves estimations.
  • Build and document static models while illustrating with cross sections, maps, cross plots, histograms, and summary tables, with high efficiency in using Petrel or RMS software.
  • Work with reservoir engineers and reserve auditors to determine reserve estimations.
  • Work with the field production, and drilling departments on well performance and optimization
  • Work closely with drilling, production engineering, and reservoir engineering teams and champion operational activities from planning to execution using a Collaborative Work Environment
