AGR is a leading well design and drilling project management, HSEQ, reservoir and field management service company delivering solutions for the entire field life cycle. Our Reservoir Management team comprises over 40 professionals covering the disciplines of geophysics, geology, petrophysics, reservoir and petroleum engineering, completions and production engineering and petroleum economics.
AGR Reservoir Management in the UK have completed more than 500 reservoir studies in the last five years spanning the globe including all major basins and reservoir types and the challenging environments that come with these such as HPHT gas condensate, heavy oil reservoirs and complex fractured reservoirs.

An exciting and challenging opportunity exists for a Principal Geoscientist/geomodeller to join our team in the Aberdeen office. The primary role will focus on geological evaluations within integrated teams of subsurface professionals for in-house field development and reservoir studies. This position is responsible for Delivering technically competent analysis and advice while achieving project milestones and deliverables in accordance with the agreed project plan and budget.

Job specific requirements
  • Hands on geological characterisation of reservoirs and geological concept generation along with geomodelling using Petrel
  • A good grounding in some or all of the fundamental geological processes (clastic or carbonate sedimentology, structural geology, petroleum geology) is required
  • Geomodelling experience should be extensive and include horizon modelling, fault framework building (new or old modules), facies modelling, petrophysical property modelling, volumetrics and upscaling. Awareness and experience of workflow generation and modification would be useful
  • Ability to integrate with and understand other subsurface disciplines is essential (especially petrophysics, geophysics and reservoir engineering)
  • Willingness to take on many different project types is required. These could be short evaluations of assets for sale or purchases (due diligence, CPR’s) reserves evaluations or longer projects for well planning or field development / management processes
  • An element of the role would require some mentoring and peer reviewing of less experienced geoscience / geology staff
