JOB SCOPE:
To develop and support novel and new-to-Weatherford data analysis methods and workflows for the analysis of low-field NMR data focused on petrophysics applications development for a new-generation wireline logging measurement.
DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:
Primary responsibility will be to develop new algorithms and workflows for the analysis and interpretation of data from a new generation wireline NMR tool.
Manage NMR answer product development projects, originate project documentation, and support training and other aspects of commercialization for prototype and new petrophysical answer products.
Ability to acquire a detailed understanding of Weatherford's NMR tools and their measurements, and leverage this in advanced answer products.
Enhance existing NMR processing and analysis techniques to exploit the specific measurement attributes of the new NMR measurements.
As the NMR research go-to person you will use your inventor-level understanding of the methods and workflows used in the delivery of integrated petrophysical interpretations to communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders.
Conduct and coordinate regular development project reviews for internal stakeholders.
Generate and present technical papers externally via technical conferences, symposia, and workshops.
Proactive in identifying research opportunities
Maintain professional standards of work and conduct at all time.
Work assignments carried out to the highest quality level.
