Job Vacancies at BG Group Nigeria - Exploration Geophysicist

BG Group is a leading player in the global energy market and a dynamic growing business with operations in some 25 countries over five continents.

BG Group is now recruiting for an Exploration Geophysicist .

With its position within the Atlantic Basin and abundance of hydrocarbon reserves, Nigeria gives an excellent opportunity to enhance BG gas chain strategy in Africa.

For you , that means the chance to maximise the potential of a major hydrocarbon resource country with vast potential for growth- and play an active role developing the energy sector

In this role, you will interpret 2D and 3D seismic data and create time and depth maps for key stratigraphic intervals for input into volumetric calculations.

Key Accountabilities

  • Identify, mature and propose seismic data acquisition and (re-) processing proposals.
  • Identify, mature and propose economically attractive exploration prospects for drilling through seismic interpretation and mapping of key stratigraphic levels, leading to products such as time maps, velocity maps and depth maps, and generate attribute analysis maps of seismic amplitudes and other key attributes (incl. AVO etc.) derived from seismic data
  • Contribute to development of an optimised exploration programme.
  • Apply state of the art interpretation and evaluation technology in the delivery of integrated, predictive subsurface models.
  • Analysis of CSEM, gravity & magnetic data, where available.
  • Produce reports outlining the processes, techniques used and conclusions derived from the work
  • Write or contribute to evaluation reports, well proposals and well planning where appropriate.
  • Ensure all geophysical uncertainties and risks are incorporated into forward exploration and appraisal programs and also incorporated into any estimates of reserves ranges generated by the group.

Unique Knowledge, Skills, Experience and Attributes

  • A degree in an Earth science discipline or its equivalent
  • Experience in generating well proposals and monitoring and driving exploration well delivery in a variety of geologic settings.
  • Proven track record in based 2D and 3D seismic seismic exploration and appraisal subsurface evaluation.
  • Broad Knowledge of other subsurface disciplines and non-seismic techniques
  • Experience of exploration drilling and/or seismic operations and processing would be desirable
  • Broad experience of working globally in different geological settings – clastics, carbonates, passive margins
  • Experience of channelised slope reservoirs would be an advantage.
  • Computer Literate
  • Proficient in the use of seismic interpretation systems [Geoframe/IESX)] desirable.

  1. I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced on your
    post. They are really convincing and will definitely
    work. Still, the posts are very quick for beginners. Could you please prolong them a bit from
    subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
