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 a Structural Geologist, with expertise in regional to prospect scale seismic and well based structural restoration across multiple international basins.
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 appraisal and 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.
Structural Geologist primary role will be to interpret regional seismic volumes/lines and perform geometric/geomechanical structural restorations. In addition, to evaluate structural control on the prospect level to enhance prospectivity of drilling locations and establish structural frameworks of prospects to be utilized in Geocellular models. Most importantly, to integrate other disciplines such as sedimentology, geomechanics, as well as drilling, stimulation, and production to enhance structural controls on the tight sand play.
As a subject matter expert, you will;
Use geological and geophsycial data to perform regional structural interpretation and identify structural trends and controls across interpreted basins.
Produce regional and prospect scale structural restoration both geometrically and geomechanically in order to enhance the prospectivity of new wells. Restorations should confirm and validate structural controls across the prospect in terms of hydrocarbon accumulation, reservoir/source rock quality, and compartmentalization.
Identify and catalog complex faults in seismic data with appropriate knowledge of their exact timing and effects on reservoir/source deposition, hydrocarbon entrapment, associated fracture propagation, and fault seal properties.
Identify syn-post kinematic relationships within a given field for target reservoirs or formations, and relate their importance with regards to hydrocarbon accumulation and reservoir/source quality.
Integration of structural features of borehole images with restored sections to identify stresses acting on picked fault planes.
Perform multi-horizon mapping of target reservoir/source crossing fault lines and integrate directly with geomodelers to produce more robust structural frameworks for geomodelling purposes.
Work closely with Sedimentologists, Basin Modelers, Geomodelers and Geophysicsts, and champion goal driven projects from planning to execution using a Collaborative Work Environment
As the successful candidate will hold aBachelor’s degree in geology or a related science as appropriate to the required discipline. An advanced degree is preferred and will reduce prerequisite work experience stated below by one year for a Masters degree and two years for Ph. D.
You must have at least 15 years’ experience with at least 5-10 years in the field of structural geology across multiple hydrocarbon basins. We will consider candidates with more or less experience depending on the quality of their experience.
You will also have;
High level experience in geometric and/or geomechanical structural restoration on a regional and prospect level scales with industry best practices in establishing structural frameworks, picking faults, identifying kinematic relationships with proficiency in specialized software, such as MOVE or Dynel. Image log structural interpretation knowledge is also preferred.
Ability to work on a multidisciplinary team with excellent interpersonal and presentation skills for knowledge sharing objectives.
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.
