Job summary

This role will be a part of bp’s early careers P&O development program. Through this program, early careers employees will build their experience through challenging development assignments, by developing a toolkit of transferable skills for the future and having a dedicated network of support to help them succeed.

As a Petrophysicist, you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team of geologists, geophysicists, reservoir and petroleum engineers and will provide deep understanding and expertise in petrophysical field studies.

The key job duties and accountabilities will include:

  • Provide petrophysical expertise as part of an integrated team, using petrophysics technology and methodology for reservoir description, delivery of new wells and reservoir surveillance.

  • Engage in log quality control, integrated data analysis and development of petrophysical models to inform reservoir development and management strategy

  • Coordinate with third party service providers to ensure safe and reliable operations and quality data delivery of wireline, LWD and coring operations and appropriate invoicing.

  • Monitor real-time operations in support of drilling, logging while drilling, coring, production logging and wireline acquisition.

  • Coordinate discipline SME input within BP’s global petrophysics network to identify petrophysical parameters that are critical to the evaluation of renewal and/or development projects

  • Provide reservoir description analysis through application and development of petrophysical evaluation best practice

  • Recommend, plan, monitor and integrate surveillance data with the static subsurface description to inform reservoir/well management decisions

  • Use latest digital and data science methods to improve efficiency and accuracy of petrophysical interpretation.

  • Understand the sensitivity and impact of uncertainties and alternate scenarios in petrophysical models and understand how to communicate these effectively.

  • Understand the geological deposition and pore geometry scale controls on petrophysical properties.

Minimum Requirements
