Key Requirements

Our client is one of the world's largest energy companies employing over 80,000 personnel and operating in over 100 countries worldwide with expertise covering a range of energy sources.

Our client is looking to fill the position of Wellsite Geologist, based in North Slope, Alaska.

Job Description

893483 - Wellsite Geologist II

Location - North Slope, AK

Rotation (2x2 or 3x3)

9 month contract

Wellsite Geologist for rotational work in support of rotary and coiled-tubing drilling operations on Alaska's North Slope. The Wellsite Geologist plays the lead role in ensuring subsurface lithology and fluid descriptions, MWD/logging, directional drilling, mud engineering, and mud logging activities are fully aligned to deliver well objectives. Work involves onsite active geosteering and operational support during all drilling activities. Drilling operations include rotary rig sidetracks, sidetracks with coil tubing drilling and occasional grassroots rotary wells. Well types are primarily horizontal (single and multi-lateral) wells, as well as vertical, extended-reach and high-angle slant wells targeting various North Slope reservoirs in fields operated. The Wellsite Geologist is also responsible for attending pre-drill and, as needed, post-drill technical and planning reviews in Anchorage offices.
The position requires close and regular interaction with wellsite team leaders, onsite rig personnel, and subsurface functional teams in Anchorage.

o Hydrocarbons show analysis and description: stain, visual cut, surface fluorescence, cut fluorescence, percentage of HOT (heavy oil / tar) occluding porosity
o Sample quality control and documentation
* Log Quality Control
o Depth control and tie-in on sidetracks, conventional wells, and CTD
o Onsite quality control for MWD / Wireline / Drill Pipe Conveyed logs
