  • Well log interpretation for open hole and case hole in diverse operated and non-operated wells. These activities can be executed for exploration, development, and production assets in the BU-Mexico.
  • Carry out all the tasks associated with the creation, updating and monitoring of the petrophysical model of the fields, including the quality control of the data.
  • Responsible for planning the logging programs within the scope of the objectives provided by the operations team, which includes measurements of open hole, cased hole, production, cementing and logs while drilling LWD (Logging while Drilling).
  • Supervision, coordination and calculation of measurements. Measurement protocols, verify and create statistics of the services, in the case when they are LWD services these must be agreed with the drilling department, when they are production records services they must be agreed with the production department.
  • Carrying out a preliminary interpretation in parallel to the measurements, to decide the position of the pressure points as well as the wall cores (when applicable). These results are the basis for unforeseen changes in the logging schedule, as well as in the planning of the completion schedule.
  • Incorporation of new findings in the reinterpretation of logs, evaluation of the core measurements and their integration within the interpretation of logs.
  • Decision on the trajectory in a geo-navigated well, in coordination with the responsible geologist.
  • Analysis of technical measurements and geometric findings to advise drilling and production departments when there are special cases.
  • Quality control of incoming log data, both from service contractors and partners. Initiation of the information archiving process in order to ensure the integrity of the data, it will also take care of the initial process of data exchange with partners.
  • Responsible for HSEQ excellence by conducting HSEQ activities, incl. quality process , safety and environmental.

Wintershall Dea is Europe’s leading independent natural gas and oil company with more than 120 years of experience as an operator and project partner along the entire E&P value chain. The company with German roots and headquarters in Kassel and Hamburg explores for and produces gas and oil in 13 countries worldwide in an efficient and responsible manner. With activities in Europe, Russia, Latin America and the MENA region (Middle East & North Africa), Wintershall Dea has a global upstream portfolio and, with its participation in natural gas transport, is also active in the midstream business.
As a European gas and oil company, we support the EU’s 2050 carbon neutrality target. As our contribution we have set ourselves ambitious targets: We want to be net zero across our entire upstream operations – both operated and non-operated – by 2030. This includes Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) greenhouse gas emissions on an equity share basis. Wintershall Dea will also bring its methane emissions intensity below 0.1 per cent by 2025 and maintain zero routine flaring of associated gas in its operations. In addition, we plan to reduce emissions resulting from the use of hydrocarbons by applying CCS and low-carbon hydrogen technologies, potentially building up a business abating 20-30 million tonnes of CO2 per annum by 2040.
Wintershall Dea was formed from the merger of Wintershall Holding GmbH and DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG, in 2019. Today, the company employs around 2,500 people worldwide from almost 60 nations.
