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 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 to deliver 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 time and depth processing, imaging with wave equation and reverse time migration, 4D, 4C and AVO processing.

Reservoir Interpretation

Our geoscience experts offer subsurface reservoir advice to energy companies and governments, integrating geological, geophysical, and petrophysical information to help maximize the value of subsurface assets, from exploration through appraisal, development, production, and carbon reinjection.

You will have the opportunity to work on PGS's vast MultiClient regional datasets and apply our 3D broadband GeoStreamer data for reservoir characterization and QI studies. Our geoscientists support project teams worldwide.

Research and Development

The R&D unit assists all PGS business areas in delivering commercially relevant, geophysically sound solutions for the acquisition and imaging of marine seismic data.

The PGS inhouse R&D team is in a unique position, with direct access to our fleet of advanced seismic ships, our broadband data library and our Imaging teams. No other company in our industry has that combination. These integrated assets and competence will give us a real edge in evolving new solutions for current activities and for the energy transition challenge.

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

Our digitalization initiatives are working with data analytics, Google Cloud, automation, digital twins. Our digitalization partner is Cognite, and we are working on industrial DataOps, HPC, Cloud migration, data liberation. 

Engineers develop new acquisition solutions and seismic equipment. We lead the industry in mechanical towing and handling of insea equipment, multisensor streamer hardware. Development groups utilize mechanical, electrical, software and optical engineering disciplines in many aspects of this development.
