Geophysicists

Imaging, reservoir interpretation, geoscience and engineering R&D offer opportunities for you to develop your career with PGS.
Seismic Imaging

Imaging geophysicists may be based in one of our 12 imaging centers worldwide. They are engaged in challenging projects with varying geographical, geological and geophysical scenarios, tailored to our clients’ needs. This job is about delivering leading-edge seismic processing and imaging services, using state-of-the-art technology.

The geophysicists are integrated into project teams. These teams are involved in technical disciplines such as 3D pre-stack time processing, 3D pre-stack depth imaging with wave equation and reverse time migration, 4D, 4C and AVO/AVA processing.

Reservoir Interpretation

Interpretation geoscientists aim to maximize the value of oil and gas fields from licensing and exploration, through the development, production and abandonment phases. Using sub-surface expertise, they help clients find reserves faster, accelerate production, delineate further reserves and lower the cost of production.

The work of the geoscientist involves 2D and 3D seismic interpretation, reservoir engineering field studies, field development planning, and sub-surface asset management. They also carry out reserves evaluations, audits and certification, MultiClient regional interpretations and evaluations for license rounds and reservoir characterization studies. 

Our reservoir unit has its main office outside London and teams worldwide, including Oslo, Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Houston, and Rio de Janeiro.

Geoscience and Engineering

This unit assists all PGS business area in delivering geophysically sound and innovative solutions for acquisition and processing of marine seismic and EM data.

Research geophysicists and software engineers develop and support PGS proprietary technology, such broadband technology, depth imaging software, our modeling and survey planning software Nucleus® and high-end visualization tools. Subject matter experts provide geophysical services like survey planning, feasibility studies, and geophysical analysis. Teams are based in Houston, London, Oslo and Perth.

Technology engineers develop new acquisition solutions and next generation seismic equipment, like GeoStreamer®, PGS OptoSeis®, and Towed Streamer EM. Development programs include mechanical towing and handling equipment, streamer hardware and new systems based on fiber optic technologies. Development groups in Oslo, London, Houston and Austin utilize mechanical, electrical, software and optical engineering disciplines in many aspects of this development.
