Job summary

Global Subsurface Solutions (GSS) Oil & Gas Solutions is a global organization within Subsurface which delivers high-quality, high impact, subsurface technical products to address critical business challenges across both the resilient hydrocarbon and low carbon businesses at bp.

Oil & Gas Solutions geologists support activity in more than 10 countries on projects as diverse as large-scale waterflood oil field developments in the Caspian Sea, infill gas field drilling in the Columbus Basin, Trinidad to planning CCS development programs on the US Gulf Coast! The successful candidate can look forward to a career gaining exposure to wide breadth of depositional systems, basins types at various parts of the hydrocarbon and CCS value chains.

As an Oil & Gas Solutions geologist you will be deployed as part of an integrated, multi-disciplinary agile squad. You will use your deep-technical skills in geology, a bias to subsurface integration and a thorough appreciation of subsurface uncertainty and risk to deliver integrated subsurface descriptions and reservoir performance predictions that underpin resource progression, field, and area development planning products across bp’s global oil and gas portfolio.

What you will deliver

  • As an individual technical contributor, work closely with other subsurface teams, and deliver high-quality geological inputs to progress prioritised business opportunities
  • You will interpret and integrate core, well-log, seismic, analogue, and dynamic data (pressure, production etc.) to develop and refine the integrated structural, stratigraphic, depositional, rock property and fluid frameworks that underpin integrated subsurface products
  • Your technical and business skills will enable you to develop appropriate subsurface scenarios to characterize and communicate subsurface uncertainties and use this knowledge to plan and deliver ‘fit for purpose’ technical products
  • Clearly communicate subsurface uncertainty to colleagues and business leaders to enable the development of risk management and mitigation plans
  • Deliver high-quality resource descriptions to underpin resource progression or storage capacity (for CCS)
  • Coach and mentor, share best practice and seek to innovate to solve technical and business problems

What you will need to be successful

  • A geology/geoscience degree
  • At least 5 years’ experience in appraisal, development, and/or production geoscience
  • Strong geoscience and subsurface integration skills, including interpretation workstation skills
  • Comfortable integrating static and dynamic subsurface data
  • Skilled in characterizing and communicating subsurface uncertainty and risk
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • A collaborative, team-first ethos, and a proven track-record of personal delivery.
The following skills / experience will also be an advantage:
  • Familiarity with Petrel
  • Delivery of Integrated Subsurface Descriptions (ISDs) and contributing to reservoir performance predictions (RPPs)
  • Broad appraisal, development, and production geology experience
  • Experience of working in global teams and managing customers
  • Experience in CCS
