Geology: The successful applicants are expected to become one of the specialists in the Sedimentology team, the Geochemistry team or the Stratigraphy team (Paleontology/Micropalaeontologist).
Sedimentology is the study of sedimentary rocks and the processes that result in their formation. Sedimentary rock holds oil, gas and water in the subsurface. In PDO, sedimentologists are concerned with investigating sedimentary rocks distribution, identifying depositional environment, characterization of the reservoir quality from different aspects including mineralogy, diagenesis, porosity, and permeability. They support different teams in PDO for the sake of oil exploration and production by conducting and integrating subsurface studies, like core descriptions, with outcrop studies to better understand and predict the hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir. The successful candidate will join a team of specialists in the sedimentology team
Petroleum Geochemistry is the application of chemical principles to the study of the origin, migration, accumulation and alteration of petroleum and the use of knowledge in exploring for and recovering petroleum. The main job scope is to provide services and consultancy and carry out specialist studies in geochemistry for oil and gas Exploration and Production assets in close cooperation with other geological services and specialist teams and production chemistry department. The successful applicant is expected to become one of the specialist as â€œGeochemistâ€ in Geological services Team.
Basin Modelling works closely together with Geochemistry, structural geology (trap risking) and stratigraphy in a wide-ranging of geological challenges, from little understood Palaeozoic hydrocarbons systems to present day biodegradation problems, provide a supportive setting for staff development. The main job scope is to plan, supervise and coordinate the Basin Modelling activities in close cooperation with Geochemistry to quantify charge risks for exploration teams
Paleontology/Micropalaeontology is the study of microscopic fossils. Accurate identification of microfossils such as foraminifera, ostracods, radiolaria and charophytes from rock samples are essential to PDO geologists as they help to date and correlate subsurface rock strata. PDO's subsurface stratigraphy group of specialists operates across the PDO organisation providing services and consultancy to Exploration and Production teams.
