You will be expected to provide this interpreted data in a concise written report. Our stratigraphers are responsible for project management and coordination of a portfolio of ongoing assignments. There is the potential for follow up meetings, workshops and presentations with clients as part of your defined role.
The senior role will involve mentoring and supervision of junior staff, contribution to divisional strategy and business development will form part of your daily duties.
Certain aspects of these roles would also require you to undertake analysis at wellsite.
