* To confidently make real-time decisions that could impact operational decisions, including well trajectory

This role will require the successful candidate to:

* Travel, including overseas and to wellsite

* Interpret and integrate stratigraphic data with all other drilling parameters and data such as LWD information

* Generate well path diagrams using drilling angle, azimuth etc.

* Review geological and biostratigraphic data and provide interpretations and correlations (predominantly within software such as Stratabugs and ODM / IC)

* Integrate their data with others, as required

* Independently and accurately generate and interpret data in real-time at wellsite

* Prepare professional reports (both daily and final summary reports)
