Operations Geologist

Description

Responsible for exploratory well planning, execution and development for strategic multibillion dollar in-situ Barnett Shale plays in the oil & gas industry. Key focal point for internal and external stakeholders, including regulatory authorities. 

§  Responsible for monitoring, quality control and reporting all sub-surface geological activity at the rig site. Accurately disseminated the reports in accordance with accepted company standard formats and procedures; ensured the geological objectives of the well were achieved and documented the results of work. Prepared reports and displays; communicated all activities to the operations team.

§  Monitored daily rig and operations geology activities; routinely quality controlled real time data and incoming data (such as MWD logs, mud logs and wireline logs).

§  Interpreted and correlated well logs and integrated well data in order to successfully understand stratigraphic frameworks.

§  Supervised junior geologists, mud-loggers, LWD/MWD personnel and directional drillers. Provided real-time drilling support and recommendations for the drilling and geology team with respect to safe operating limits on drilling mud weight and rate of penetration (ROP) to ensure incident-free drilling operations. Actively participated in company networks to develop and implement best practices and standards in subsurface geology knowledge and activity.
