Senior Geologist – Houston, TX

Senior Geologist – Houston, TX

CSI Recruiting is working with a small, privately-held E&P firm that is seeking to make a key Senior Geologist hire to add to their small team of experienced technical professionals.

The company is actively seeking acquisitions of unconventional shale assets within the most prolific basins of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and the Rockies (Wyoming / Colorado), and this role will be heavily involved in the evaluations of acquisition opportunities in those regions.


Qualified Senior Geologist candidates should have a minimum of 10 years of professional, in-house exploration geology experience, with a recent emphasis on evaluation of unconventional assets as part of an in-house team at an active E&P company.

Working in a small team environment, excellent communications skills are essential, as is a high energy approach to the job.  Petra experience is preferred.

Multi-tasking will be a large component of this role, as you’ll often be evaluating multiple opportunities in disparate regions, so organizational skills, the ability to juggle multiple projects simultaneously, and an even temper will be necessary to be truly effective in this position.

There will be stressful periods, but for good reason – tied to bid deadlines, and those periods will be temporary and sporadic.

Unique Role, Immediate Need

This Senior Geologist role is a truly unique opportunity to join a team of proven winners, a group that has been successful in their prior endeavors, and be a part of a growth-minded firm with acquisitions to make in the very near term.

Candidates should apply immediately – we’re seeking to start interviews early next week (Feb 19th).
