· Plan and drive exploration geological studies, specifically focused onthe update of the conventional portfolio, and tight and deep oil & gasreservoir play maturation. This includes well log interpretations in closecooperation with the Petrophysicists, well log correlations, preparation ofregional reservoir property maps, play maps, prospect maps and other maps,regional play evaluations, prospect ranking and maturation studies, basinanalysis and geochemical studies, exploration well proposals, proposals forsnapshots, volumetric assessments, etc., all in full cooperation with otherdisciplines and integrating all petroleum engineering, geological and welldata.

· Propose and justify data gathering activities such as the acquisition ofcores, pressure measurements and wireline logs in exploration wells andsnapshots or seismic or other geophysical data.This includes proposals for deepening of development wells to explorethe... hydrocarbon potential of deeper horizons and tight oil reservoirs.

· Define contracted conventional and special core analysis related toreservoir geology. This includes defining scope of the analysis requirements,preparing specifications, evaluating bids and recommending final award andcontract features as assigned.

· Ensure contractors’ compliance with contract terms and schedules andmonitors progress and performance through regular activity reports.
