Job summary

Geologists can expect to work in at least two very different roles in the first few years at BP. These roles might be in the exploration, appraisal, development, production or research parts of the business. The overwhelming majority of our positions in the US are based in Houston or Anchorage where geologists work on a wide variety of technical challenges in support of our Gulf of Mexico Production, Western Hemisphere Exploration, Global Projects and Subsurface Technology businesses. Responsibilities are highly variable based on role but commonly could include the following:
• Contribute as a multi-disciplinary team member to the planning and execution of at least one well through operations, monitoring real time drilling data against pre-drill prognosis and within the subsurface geomodels. Gain field and operations experience at the well site.
• Participate in a multi-disciplinary effort to evaluate subsurface uncertainty for a prospect or field in exploration, appraisal, development or production.
• Construct a framework structural model (fault and surfaces) to calculate bulk rock volume. Incorporate rock and fluid properties (porosity, net to gross, water saturation, etc) to complete a hydrocarbon in-place volumetric determination and uncertainty analysis for a field.
• Develop conceptual cartoons to communicate key structural elements and plate tectonic framework.
• Identify and communicate key overburden risks and potential geohazards using offset well drilling data and conventional 3D seismic and/or high resolution shallow seismic, exploiting seismic attributes (including seismic inversion where available).
• Construct a basic field chronostratigraphic chart or apply an existing stratigraphic framework to make well picks and correlate multiple wells.
• Integrate core, well log, and seismic data to develop reservoir models that are linked to analogs.
• Perform a regional geology review, identifying potential geological outcrops (including analogs) which would support the subsurface work programme (in exploration, appraisal, development or production).
• Consult with a reservoir quality specialist to understand how petrography, diagenesis and pore architecture are integrated to develop a model of geological controls on reservoir quality.
• Work with biostratigraphers to understand the implications of biostratigraphic interpretations (biozonation, age, environment and correlations) across business critical stratigraphies.
