What role you will play in our team


Characterize and predict porosity, permeability, water saturation and geo-mechanical properties of reservoirs using petrographic techniques to support development and production business decisions.

What you will do


  • Integrate Petrography, Petro physics and other rock evaluation methods to analyze reservoir quality in penetrated formations,
  • Assess geologic controls on reservoir quality and predict away from well control in data-rich areas,
  • Identify regional sediment supply systems, evaluate genetic controls on reservoir storage capacity and cementation history to high-grade and estimate chance of adequacy for regions with favorable porosity and permeability characteristics in data poor areas
  • Contribute to data-collection protocols for new wells
  • Provide rock-property measurements and predictions within a regional geologic context for petro physical and geo-mechanical workflows
