Shell is at the forefront of Petrophysics technology and plays a vital role in the search and recovery of new energy reserves. As such, Petrophysics jobs at Shell are an instrumental part of maintaining our competitive edge.
Whether tasked with defining formation evaluation programmes, assessing recovery potential, or interpreting and integrating data with other disciplines (engineers, geologists and geophysicists), a Petrophysics career will see you playing a crucial role in our Upstream Business. As part of one of the leading Petrophysics teams in the world, you will be working with some of the industry’s most innovative technologies in areas such as Geological Mapping, Remote Sensing and Seismic Monitoring.
We are looking for talented, creative and passionate individuals that can help us make a difference in the energy sector by helping to develop innovative and safety-conscious ways of searching for and identifying new reserves around the world. Candidates should have proven technical experience as well as a good understanding of the science and technology involved in advanced Petrophysics.
You will have the opportunity to participate in a number of training programmes designed to help you progress your career. Our self-guided career development path allows you the chance to develop in line with your own ambitions, while simultaneously fulfilling ours of remaining one of the leading energy companies in the world. As you will be working with some of the most forward-thinking individuals in the industry, a Petrophysics career at Shell will give you ample opportunity to develop at the forefront of the industry.
Located offshore Sabah in Malaysia, the Gumusut-Kakap field lies in water of up to 1,220 metres deep, and is the first deep-water opportunity for Shell in the country. The field is being developed using 19 subsea wells, with oil exported via a pipeline to a new oil and gas terminal, which will be built in Kimanis, Sabah.
Given the size and scope of the project, our engineers and Petrophysicists have had the challenge of developing safe and efficient ways of extraction, such as re-injecting extracted natural gas into the reservoir to help improve overall oil recovery.
Field like Gumusut-Kakap require excellent Petrophysicists who wish to develop their career in one of the world’s leading energy companies.

Manu Singhal is the Discipline Chief for Petrophysics and is based in India.
“Shell is the ideal workplace for people who value industry best practice and a multi-cultural work environment and enjoy taking up the challenge of working across diverse portfolios. Shell is a very professional yet informal company – not only do people make a contribution to the projects they are working on, but they are also encouraged to be a coach or mentor to younger employees.
The Petrophysics projects range from real-time data monitoring or operational petrophysics to detailed integrated petrophysical evaluation. All Shell employees also have the opportunity to connect with Principal Technical Experts (PTEs) and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) if they need help or advice..”
