Lead Geophysicist for Operator Company


  • Integrate well, seismic, geological, and other relevant data to maintain an up-to-date understanding of the subsurface.
  • Seismic interpretation, velocity analysis and depth conversion, leading to the construction of reservoir surfaces and associated uncertainty ranges for input to reservoir models
  • Use pre- and post-stack seismic data and quantitative rock physics to characterize the subsurface
  • Design, advise and follow up appropriate external studies, evaluate and incorporate study findings i.e Inversion, rock physics etc
  • Wok according to the company’s best practices and standards as well as suggesting improvements to these. Test new technologies, workflows and software
  • Contribute to technical proposals, reports and presentations to partners (workshops/EC/RC) or internally (BPR/peer review), in collaboration with area’ Team
  • Support and contribute to exploration licenses as required

Technical and personal skills

  • Master degree or equivalent in geophysics
  • Seismic interpretation using a suite of interpretation tools (Petrel, Geoteric, RokDoc and DUG)
  • Minimum 7-10 years of relevant experience from the Oil & Gas industry, and knowledge of the E&P business
  • Strong background in seismic interpretation and competent in fundamentals of mapping (synthetic well ties, horizon/fault mapping, 3D attributes, etc.)
  • Strong background in seismic forward modelling (preferably RokDoc) to help calibrate seismic interpretations to well results
  • Strong background in qualitative prestack interpretation (AVO & EEI)
  • Comfortable providing QC on seismic processing and prestack inversion projects being done by 3rd party vendors
  • Relevant experience working with operated development projects and workflows in Norway preferred
  • Team player with the ability to work in a multi-disciplinary environment and to integrate other subsurface disciplines into a project. Basic understanding of own role and other roles
  • Ability to effectively present and discuss results and issues, and to provide the technical base for decisions
  • Fluent in English (oral and written) and preferably Norwegian language skills
