Sr. Petrophysicist

 Centennial Resource Development, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDEV) is currently seeking a Sr. Petrophysicist. Reporting to the Vice President, Geosciences, the Sr. Petrophysicist will be a key member of our geoscience and petrotechnical team and be expected to support field development activities to maximize recovery. The ideal candidate will have strong technical as well as communication skills and be able to contribute his/her expertise while working on multi-disciplinary teams in a fast-paced environment.

General Responsibilities

  • Perform in-depth, well specific & regional petrophysical studies including full integration of core & log data
  • Combine logging data from multiple downhole sensors with core and sample data to determine the hydrocarbon production capacity, lithology and fluid saturation of a reservoir
  • Interpret well logs including wellbore stability and pore pressure model development
  • Log model calibration to routine and special core analysis in all targeted stratigraphic horizons
  • Provide multi-discipline support and petrophysical evaluation in unconventional reservoirs including: siliciclastic, carbonate and fractured reservoirs
  • Collaborate with engineers and geologists to develop saturation-height relationships for use in geological and flow simulation models
  • Perform reliable industry standard formation evaluation in support of well operation
  • Review and select best petrophysical vendors based on technical and economic factors



  • Bachelor’s degree in relevant field
  • 6+ years of oil and gas experience, preferably with a petrophysical/engineering/geological team to develop comprehensive, integrated reservoir interpretation for asset evaluation
  • Field experience as a wireline engineer or with a service company highly desired as this person is expected to help line out logging jobs and interfacing with service companies regarding pricing and method
  • Permian experience strongly preferred. Other applicable low-resistivity and complex lithologic plays will be considered
  • Competent in laboratory work such that he/she could guide the team on selections of laboratory measurements, interfacing with sales representative, and quality control
  • Proficient understanding of core to log integration and resultant reservoir modeling
  • Strong understanding of the general applications of wireline and LWD logs, with wireline open hole log experience being a plus
  • Expert in basic as well as advanced logging tools, specifically in NMR, image, and geomechanical based modeling
  • Must be self-motivated and capable of independently integrating within multi-disciplinary teams
  • Must be able to comb through a large amount of data and assist with some of the basic needs, specifically normalizing, correcting, and splicing logs
  • Must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to communicate effectively with diverse audiences
  • Proficiency in Petra, or other relevant geological software
