Apache Corporation is one of the world's leading independent oil and gas producers. The company has a six-decade record of profitable growth, and is differentiated by its #1 position around the world, entrepreneurial culture and deep operational focus.
Apache’s vision is to be the premier exploration and production company with global assets focused on North American growth. To support this vision, the company’s multidisciplinary Corporate Reservoir Management (RM) team performs reservoir characterization, reservoir simulation, and integrated field studies to support investment decisions and underpin reserves estimates across Apache’s Regional business units. As a member of the RM team, the successful candidate will provide best-in-class geoscience support, consisting primarily of integrated field studies and static model construction for reservoir simulation studies.
The Geoscience Advisor will work with fellow RM and Region staff (petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists, and engineers) to identify, prioritize, and execute technical projects, as well as review work performed directly by/within the Regions. The candidate will also work with CRE (Corporate Reservoir Engineering) as required to validate in-place volumetric estimates and associated reserves bookings. The candidate will be expected to manage a mix of longer-term projects and short-term operational requests, re-prioritizing according to business need. The candidate will also mentor younger staff within RM, other corporate groups, and in the Regions, building skills and deploying best practices company-wide. To facilitate both project delivery and skills transfer, the candidate will travel both domestically and internationally as required. Specific technical skills/expertise required for the role include sequence stratigraphic analysis, structural analysis, geophysical mapping, petrophysical analysis, 3D reservoir modeling, field development planning, and uncertainty and risk management. Experience in both conventional and unconventional reservoir characterization/ geomodeling is required.
The Geoscience Advisor will be responsible for:
