Imaging Scientist/Geophysicist at CCG: rolling applications
CGG (http://www.cgg.com) is a fully integrated Geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers primarily from the global oil and gas industry. Through its complementary business lines of Equipment, Acquisition and Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir (GGR), CGG brings value across all aspects of natural resource exploration and exploitation. CGG employs over 6,500 people around the world, all with a passion for Geoscience and working together to deliver the best solutions to its customers.
CGG is the recognized leader in subsurface seismic imaging, particularly in the areas of 3D depth imaging, 4D imaging and reservoir characterization. We have a worldwide network of seismic data imaging centres and dedicated facilities, which allow us to offer unrivalled subsurface capabilities to our global client base.
Description of role:
Initially reporting to a Team Leader the Imaging Scientist will be responsible for constructing three-dimensional subsurface images from reflection seismic soundings using proprietary data processing modules on arrays of CPU and/or GPU computer systems. They will learn to develop and apply the latest data imaging techniques to optimize the quality of the subsurface image, whilst removing noise from the reflection seismic soundings, including identification and suppression of previously unseen types of noise in new exploration areas, all with the aim of creating state-of-the-art subsurface images for our customers.
The successful candidate will be expected to learn the technical application details of CGG’s array of processing modules and how to run a complete seismic project whilst working within a team environment. In creating final images the role will also involve detailed testing of various algorithms as well as the flexibility to conceive & propose new ideas. They will learn and master processing of 3D and 4D imaging projects from a variety of regions acquired with a variety of acquisition types (land, marine, ocean-bottom, wide-azimuth, full-azimuth, multi-sensor & those yet to be developed) all of which containing complicated & unique depth-imaging requirements taking into account the relationship between the seismic soundings and rock properties of the subsurface layers.
They will have an unquestionable interest in science and extensive knowledge of physics and mathematics, be receptive to feedback and have a good attitude and intuition. They will question things and seek to gain a deep understanding of the underlying science in an attempt to help us continuously improve our technology.
Required Education and Experience:
- Higher degree in Physics and/or Mathematics. Engineering and Geophysics also acceptable. PhD level preferred but Masters level also considered
- Proven ability to critically analyse difficult scientific problems and reach useful solutions and conclusions, along with demonstrable experience in applied mathematics are essential for this role. Experience of programming would also be desired.
