Subsurface Group

Job Summary:

bp Technical Solutions India (TSI) centre in Pune, aims to build on bp’s existing engineering and technical strengths to deliver high quality services to its hydrocarbons and new energy businesses worldwide. TSI brings together diverse engineering capability to provide technical services across a range of areas including engineering, maintenance, optimization, data processes, projects and subsurface, to deliver safe, affordable and lower emission energy, while continuously innovating how we work.
Global Subsurface Solutions (GSS) delivers high quality, impactful, subsurface technical products to address critical business challenges across bp’s oil, gas, and low carbon businesses.

As a GSS petrophysicist you will support prioritised well planning, resource progression and low carbon opportunities across bp’s global portfolio. Communication of subsurface uncertainty and risk, and the ability to integrate deeply with other disciplines, will be key to your success.

Job Description:

What you will deliver

  • Analyse and integrate available well data to define the rock and fluid frameworks that underpin integrated subsurface products and risk management plans.
  • Describe petrophysical uncertainty and alternative scenarios at the well- and reservoir-scale, and communicate their technical and business impact effectively.
  • Make recommendations on data acquisition plans and define the value of data to be acquired.
  • Become an active member of bp’s petrophysics and wider subsurface communities, learning from (and sharing) standard methodology, and seeking to innovate to solve technical and business problems.

What you will need to be successful 

Must have educational qualifications:

  • A degree from a recognised university in geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering or relevant science-based educational curriculum.

Minimum years of relevant experience:

  • 8 years of experience as a petrophysicist in an integrated oil and gas company, or with a service provider.

Must have experiences/skills (To be hired with):

  • Excellent reservoir characterisation and log interpretation skills (using open hole logs, core, pressures and fluid data, mudlogs/lithlogs, and any available dynamic data).
  • Highly proficient in a well log interpretation package, ideally Techlog.
  • Comfortable working with large datasets and taking a pragmatic approach to analysis.
  • Familiarity with the latest wireline and Logging While Drilling (LWD) tools, as well as the use of vintage tools.
  • Integration of petrophysical products with static and dynamic models/scenarios.
  • Self-motivated, analytical and resourceful, with a strong ability and desire to collaborate and integrate across disciplines.
  • Proficient in spoken and written English.

Good to have experiences/skills (Can be trained for – learning/on-the-job):

  • Cased hole log interpretation and integration.
  • Spotfire / PowerBI-style data visualisation.
  • Experience using Petrel.
  • Computer programming (ideally in Python) including statistical methods, machine learning and data analytics.

Shift support : flexible working may be required depending on project location

You will work with

Your line manager will be the Geology/ Petrophysics Discipline Leader supporting the TSI Unit within GSS.   Technical coaching and assurance will be provided by the Eastern Hemisphere GSS and Regions Petrophysics Discipline Leader, based in the United Kingdom.

You will work in Pune, India, but may be remotely deployed into an international, integrated subsurface delivery ‘squad’ where day-to-day activities/deliverables will be prioritised by the squad leader. These GSS squads typically consist of 5-10 multi-disciplinary technical members in several locations and are deployed based on global subsurface business prioritisation.

You will also work in close collaboration with subsurface teams in the country your squad supports. You will become part of bp’s supportive global Petrophysics Community, with access to Communities of Practice, technical specialists, and domain experts to help you develop your technical skills.
