Full time at Saudi Aramco (ASC) in Saudi Arabia
Posted on November 22, 2022

Job details

Aramco energizes the world economy.

Aramco occupies a unique position in the global energy industry. We are the world's largest producer of hydrocarbons (oil and gas), with the lowest upstream carbon intensity of any major producer.

With our significant investment in technology and infrastructure, we strive to maximize the value of the energy we produce for the world along with a commitment to enhance Aramco's value to society.

Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations' spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom's vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.

We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.


We are seeking a CO2 sink 3D Geomodeler to work with Saudi Aramco's Characterization and Field Development Departments to perform advanced data analysis, characterization, and 3D Modeling by utilizing available geological, geophysical, petrophysical, fracture analysis and Dynamic modeling data to evaluate and generate numerical sink models for CO2 Storage.

We are targeting an experienced Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Geomodeler with solid background in the characterization, description, modeling, uncertainty analysis, and risk assessment of most effective geological formations among, and not limited to, existing Oil and gas fields, saline aquifers, coal seams, and Organic-Rich Shales.

Key Responsibilities

You will be required to perform the following:

Generate Numerical Subsurface Models by utilizing all the available G&G data, geomechanical, petrophysical, and dynamic data to identify and quantify CO2 Storage sinks, Injectivity Assessment, Seal Integrity, and Depth Evaluation under Uncertainty and Risk Considerations.

Evaluate Trapping mechanisms including Structural, stratigraphic, Residual, Solubility, and Mineral trapping.

Perform 3D Structural, stratigraphic, Petrophysical, and Fluid Saturation Modeling by incorporating leading-edge methodologies and workflows.

Build Geomechanical Models for Discrete Fracture Network incorporating Rock and Field Stress analysis for full evaluation of Ground Deformation, Fault Reactivation, induced seismicity, and fracture propagation.

Evaluate leakage risk associated to static geological properties and dynamic conditions in time.

Perform Volumetric uncertainty analysis under uncertainty.

Update and Monitor 3D Models as required for continuous Operations and Business Plan forecasting.

Ready to undertake complex assignments independently with minimal direction from supervisor.

Collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure projects are on track, the deliverables are accurate and reliable.

Work closely with Company departments leading the CO2 Capture Technology and Projects.

Maintain key relationships with industry and academic institutions in order to update technical skills in Reservoir Modeling and CO2 Storage and disciplines related.

Represent the company on appropriate company-sponsored consortia.

Provide training to junior staff as well as to other specialists, both on one-to-one and occasionally.

Provide mentoring and technical assistance to young professionals.

Minimum Requirements

As the considered candidate with expertise, you will hold a bachelor degree or higher in Geology or Geophysics.

Fifteen years of experience in formation description, characterization and geomodeling of Clastic and Carbonate reservoirs and at least five years with demonstrated track record associated to CCS Projects.

Ability to integrate all available Geological, Geophysical, Petrophysical, Sedimentological, and reservoir engineering information for advance 3D Geological Modeling for reservoir architecture, Volumetric analysis and flow behavior.

Familiar with Software solutions for Interpretation and Integration of all geological, geophysical, geomechanical, and dynamic data (DSG, Petrel, RMS, Petrosys, Geolog, Teclog, etc.).

Ability to take critical decisions in real-time and solve problems.

Ability to generate a 3D geological model for sink characterization utilizing limited sparse data with multiple scenarios, uncertainty analysis and risk analysis.

Strong knowledge of statistical methods necessary to distribute facies and petrophysical properties into a 3D geological model.

Ability to work in multidiscipline teams.

English language fluency with the capability to communicate verbally and in writing.

Excellent presentation skills.

Working environment

Our high-performing employees are drawn by the challenging and rewarding professional, technical and industrial opportunities we offer, and are remunerated accordingly.

At Aramco, our people work on truly world-scale projects, supported by investment in capital and technology that is second to none. And because, as a global energy company, we are faced with addressing some of the world's biggest technical, logistical and environmental challenges, we invest heavily in talent development.

We have a proud history of educating and training our workforce over many decades. Employees at all levels are encouraged to improve their sector-specific knowledge and competencies through our workforce development programs - one of the largest in the world.
