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’s Reservoir Management team in the UK have completed more than 500 reservoir studies over 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 Geophysicist to join our team in the Aberdeen office. The primary role will focus on geophysical 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.
Who does this role suit?
AGR people are generally individuals who would like to move from a constrained corporate environment to a role where they are given the freedom to express their ideas and develop and nurture client relationships.

The Role
  • Provide geophysical input to multi-disciplinary projects, from frontier exploration through discovery appraisal to field development and production
  • Performs 2D and 3D seismic interpretation and analysis using appropriate, state-of-the-art techniques to provide Best In Class solutions for the client
  • Presents data, interpretations, and reports to clients either individually or as part of the larger project team
  • Advises clients on geophysical matters and provides solutions
  • Manage projects.
Qualification requirements
A Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree or PhD in Geology or Geoscience and 15+ years’ experience with an operator or service company in the oil and gas sector is preferred. However, exceptional candidates with less experience will be considered. Experience of project management of multidisciplinary teams is required. This skillset includes writing project scopes, managing team tasks and managing client interactions including data gathering, presentations and reporting.
Job specific requirements
  • Hands on QC and interpretation of seismic data in terms of horizon and fault picking and depth conversion
  • Experience of Kingdom and/or Petrel Seismic interpretation packages is essential. Other interpretation package experience would be useful
  • Understanding of seismic volume or 2D line generation processes and data types is required to enable a proper appreciation of data limitations
  • Ability to integrate with and understand other subsurface disciplines is essential (especially petrophysics, geology/ geomodelling 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
  • Experience of seismic attribute generation techniques and the uses of these volumes in characterising reservoir lithology, porosity, fluid fill or fracturing is required
  • Awareness of seismic inversion techniques is required including an ability to QC and use these types of volumes (elastic parameters, porosity etc.) in reservoir characterisation and modelling
  • An element of the role would require some mentoring and peer reviewing of less experienced geophysical / geoscience staff
  • Experience of project management of multidisciplinary teams is required. This skillset includes writing project scopes, managing team tasks and managing client interactions including data gathering, presentations and reporting.
