Reporting to the Director of Acquisitions, the Geologist will be tasked with creating basin scale mapping within Freehold Focus areas by working with multiple data sources (well log and core data, production information, published literature and company reports), and integrate these datasets to a robust reservoir interpretation. 

This interpretation will feed into the asset development modelling, determining remaining inventory, type curve regions, and reservoir risk. As well, the geologist is responsible in validating vendor data provided as part of the acquisition process and providing the appropriate feedback to the negotiating landman and engineer. 

Strong presentation and PowerPoint skills are required, as there are numerous recommendations to the management and executive teams, often with short deadlines. A creative nature is an asset, as part of the continuous improvement objectives of Freehold and Rife.
