Geoscience Technician and Technologist

Job Overview

As a geoscience technician or technologist, you are the gatekeeper. You store, retrieve, compile, manipulate and display large amounts of data. With all this information, geophysicists and geoscientists look to you for the data they need to make decisions. Seismic data, geophysical data, well data, core data – you have it.

Geoscience technicians and technologists store, retrieve, manipulate and display data using software programs. These activities allow them to help process and interpret the geological and geophysical data used by engineers and other geoscientists in order to plan and conduct seismic and geological mapping surveys, drilling and completion programs and simulation studies. They also help in the evaluation of oil and gas reservoir performance.
