Development Geologist – Dallas, TX

CSI Recruiting is working with a young, energetic and growing E&P firm in the DFW area in their need for a Development Geologist with a strong development and operations focus, specifically with a background working Conventional CO2 flood assets.

The company is actively developing their conventional oil asset base, drilling wells and charting new locations. Your role as a development geologist will be part of a team, working hand-in-hand with the company’s founders, engineers, and landmen to grow the firm via the drill bit and identification of new opportunities.

Your primary focus will concentrate on development geology within the company’s active CO2 flood oil assets.  The company needs a strong and independent-minded geologist with a good understanding of reservoir characterization, ability to work with advanced data sets (core, logs, and some seismic), and have a working knowledge of basic petroleum engineering concepts.

Ideally, candidates will have 3-8 years of professional experience working as an in-house geologist at a domestic-focused exploration & production company.  Candidates should have hands-on, professional development geology experience with at least 2 years working conventional oil assets.

Permian and Rockies experience would be preferred, as would experience with waterflood or CO2 flood assets.

Ability to work in a lean, entrepreneurial environment is essential. The company is willing to help with relocation assistance to the right candidate.
