REPORTING TO                 :          Senior Manager, Exploration

DIVISION/DEPARTMENT      :         Exploration Project

LOCATION                         :         KL Office 


1.KEY OBJECTIVES

  • Regional and prospect-specific assessment of exploration potential of exploration blocks.
  • Develop high quality prospect inventory, integrating regional studies and latest technology, mature prospects to ready-to-drill.
  • Well Planning, execution and operational (drilling) for exploration and appraisal wells.


2.PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTABILITIES

  • Carry out 3D and 2D seismic interpretation and mapping integrating well data, log correlation to generate prospects and leads. Perform velocity analysis and evaluation of different time to depth conversion techniques.
  • Integrate existing and new well and seismic interpretations into regional and prospect evaluations and databases.
  • Identify and mature opportunities into ready-to-drill prospect, including the appraisal potential. 
  • Learn from senior staff on application of qualitative interpretation techniques such as seismic reservoir characterization and AVO analysis to optimize exploration, appraisal and development of hydrocarbon pools
  • Carry out resource assessment consistent with industry practices through the integration of geological, petrophysical and dynamic reservoir data.
  • Prepare prospect prognosis including well proposal and well planning.
  • Well surveillance, monitoring of exploration and appraisal well including well-sitting if required.
