Production Geoscientist

Point Resources was formed in early 2016 following the merger of Pure E&P, Core Energy and Spike Exploration. The company newly acquired the operated upstream business of ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Norway AS, and on completion of the transaction, the combined company will become one of the top independent oil and gas producers on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (‘NCS’). Production in 2016 from the combined assets was about 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd). With an asset portfolio that includes several fields in the development phase, the combined company has the potential to grow its production base organically to over 80,000 boepd by 2022, and will have reserves and contingent resources of about 350 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Point Resources will have a team of approximately 370 employees. The company aims to develop a collaborative culture with the team sharing a diverse range of skills and working hard towards the Company’s vision of becoming a leading player in the NCS.
