Geophysicists

Imaging, reservoir interpretation, geoscience and engineering R&D offer opportunities for you to develop your career with PGS. Teams are based in Oslo, London and Houston.

Seismic Imaging

Imaging geophysicists may be based in one of our three imaging centers, or local sales offices. 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 prestack time and depth processing, imaging with wave equation and reverse time migration, 4D, 4C and AVO 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 subsurface 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 and QI studies. 

Our skilled geoscientists support our New Ventures and Sales teams worldwide.

Geoscience and Engineering

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

Research geophysicists and software engineers develop and support PGS proprietary technology, such as broadband acquisition technology, depth imaging software, modeling and survey planning software, and advanced visualization tools. 

Technology engineers develop new acquisition solutions and the next generation of seismic equipment. Development programs include mechanical towing and handling equipment, streamer hardware and new systems. Development groups utilize mechanical, electrical, software and optical engineering disciplines in many aspects of this development.
