About bp

Our purpose is to bring together people, energy and markets to power and navigate a changing world.

In a time of constant change and possibility we need new talent to pursue commercial opportunities, fueled by world-class insight and expertise. We're always striving for more innovative digital solutions, sustainable outcomes and closer collaboration across our company and beyond, and you could be part of that too. Together we continue to grow as the world's leading energy company!

What you will deliver

  • As an individual technical contributor, you will work closely with other subsurface disciplines and other business units such as the Wells organization.
  • You will deliver high quality seismic analysis, interpretation, depth conversion and mapping using innovative workstation technologies, whilst integrating with geological and engineering data to build subsurface descriptions which underpin field developments across the global portfolio.
  • Your technical and business skills will enable you to develop appropriate subsurface scenarios, to characterize and communicate subsurface uncertainties and use this knowledge to plan and deliver 'fit for purpose' technical products.
  • Your ability to clearly communicate subsurface uncertainty to colleagues and business leaders will enable the development of appropriate risk management and mitigation plans.
  • You will promote bp's commitment to safe, responsible and sustained performance, and demonstrate strong individual and leadership behaviors in line with bp values.
  • As a geophysicist in bp's geophysics and subsurface communities, you will coach and mentor, share standard methodology and seek innovation to solve technical and business challenges.

What you will need to be successful

Must have educational qualifications:

Geophysics / geoscience degree from a recognized university.

Minimum years of relevant experience:

8 years of relevant experience as a geophysicist in oil, gas or CCS exploration, appraisal, development, production or well planning.

Must have experiences/skills (to be hired with):

  • Excellent seismic manipulation and interpretation skills, including 3D digital toolkit skills.
  • Skills in velocity calibration, pore pressure prediction from seismic, depth conversion techniques and depth uncertainty analysis.
  • Ability to integrate diverse static and dynamic subsurface and well data.
  • Skilled in characterizing and communicating subsurface uncertainty, risk and value.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills in English.
  • A highly collaborative, team-first ethos, and a proven track-record of personal delivery.
  • Strong desire to develop and learn new skills.

Good to have experiences/skills (can be trained for - learning/on-the-job):

  • Familiarity with Petrel, PalaeoScan, Hampson Russell and statistical packages.
  • Experience in seismic attribute work, basic seismic response and AVO modelling.
  • Broad exploration, appraisal and development geoscience experience.
  • Experience in Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage.
  • Well planning experience.
  • Familiarity with Integrated Subsurface Descriptions and integrating seismic products into models as well as forward modelling of any dynamic fluid and pressure response.
  • An understanding of non-seismic geophysical methods and their role (strengths and limitations) in long term monitoring for CCUS projects.
  • Experience of working in diverse global teams and managing collaborators.
  • Familiarity with agile working practices.

You will work with

Your line manager will be the Geophysics Discipline Leader supporting the TSI Unit within GSS.

You will work in Pune, India, but may be remotely deployed into an international, integrated subsurface delivery 'squad' where day-to-day activities/work will be prioritized by the squad leader.
