Rock Physicist


Rock Physicist

Villahermosa – Mexico

The rock physicist is responsible for the interpretation of petrophysics, evaluating the consistency and physical porosities of the minerals to determine the control and viability of their quality. 

Reports to: Reservoir Characterization Lead 


Roles and Responsabilities:

  • Determine the quality of in physical terms to know the porosities of the minerals and the amount of clay. 
  • Evaluate how the presence of hydrocarbons affects the elastic or electrical behavior of rocks. Modeling of basic records with which the elastic behavior of rocks (rock deformation) in terms of the volumetric factor can be established. 
  • Determine if the petrophysicist does not meet the quality requirements and be in constant communication with the petrophysicist in order to provide alternatives. 
  • Consider adequate criteria to select cutting parameters according to the data provided, lithology, etc.
