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 Development Geologist, with expertise in reservoir characterization and development of tight sand plays, to join our Emerging Unconventional Assets Department (EUAD). EUAD is responsible for the characterization and development of an established tight sand play in the Kingdom, through initiating and executing integrated subsurface projects to guide development campaigns in order to meet gas production targets from unconventional resources. In addition, we offer support to production engineering for stimulation and hydraulic fracturing operations. Your primary role will be tight sand reservoir characterization and to generate and interpret fit-for-purpose geological models for reservoir characterization, field development plan and hydrocarbon in- place assessment by integrating sedimentology, petrophysics and geomechanics as well as drilling, stimulation, and production.

Key Responsibilities

As the successful candidate you will perform the following: Use geological models to recommend placement of wells and supplementary processes to enhance production & integrate & utilize geological & engineering data to optimize field development strategy. Identify opportunities for workovers, infill drilling, and multi-well pad optimization. Perform complex geological assignments such as resource assessments and create volumetric calculations to determine reserves estimations. Build and document static models while illustrating with cross sections, maps, cross plots, histograms, and summary tables, with high efficiency in using Petrel or RMS software. Work with reservoir engineers and reserve auditors to determine reserve estimations Work with the field production, and drilling departments on well performance and optimization Work closely with drilling, production engineering, and reservoir engineering teams and champion operational activities from planning to execution using a collaborative work environment.

Minimum Requirements

You must hold a Bachelor's degree in geology or a related science as appropriate to the required discipline. An advanced degree is preferred and will reduce prerequisite work experience stated below by one year for a Masters degree and two years for PhD. You should have a minimum of 15 years' experience with at least 5-10 years in unconventional tight sand plays across different unconventional hydrocarbon basins required. We will consider candidates with more or less experience depending on the quality of their experience. You will have high level experience in integrating regional to field-scale geological evaluations and applied petroleum systems analysis with knowledge of industry best practices in development optimization and operational efficiency with a high efficiency in using static modeling software such as Petrel and RMS. You must have the ability to work on a multidisciplinary team with excellent interpersonal and presentation skills for knowledge sharing objectives.

Working environment

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