Geophysicists study the Earth's physical properties via field and lab work for companies in the engineering and oil industries, governmental geological surveys, or environmental protection groups. Skills relevant to this position and found on example resumes include re-mastering of data with proper grid and projection; filling pre-stack, post-stack, and velocity orders from clients; and using various workstation programs to provide quality control of products. A master's degree in geophysics, geoscience, or a similar field is the recommended education for Geophysicists, though some entry-level positions may only require candidates to have a bachelor's degree on their resumes.

Senior Geophysicist

Responsible for leading the geoscientific exploration effort in the Southwest Peninsula, Trinidad. One exploratory well was drilled in the project. The well found the objective Cruse sands to be oil-bearing but had to be abandoned because of mechanical problems.
The team used proprietary and traditional technologies in the interpretation of data. Proprietary technologies included in-house spectral decomposition techniques, geochemistry and electromagnetism.

  • Jointly interpreted 2D seismic and geologic data from both onshore and offshore areas of Mozambique.
  • Interpreted marine 2D seismic data in Seychelles. Delineated plays which were presented to management.
  • Worked the Syr-Darya Basin in Kazakhstan with the intention of the company investing there. Plays developed but not pursued by the company.
  • Interpreted and assessed several blocks in offshore Peru. Based on this work bids were proposed on two leased blocks.
