Responsibilities for Reservoir Engineer
- Recommending collection of additional specialized reservoir data, fluid sample analysis, pressure data and other information necessary to evaluate reservoirs.
- Advising on operational activities from a reservoir engineering standpoint.
- Building and/or updating simulation models and use these to generate forecasts.
- Performs a full corporate rotation through each discipline of Drilling, Completions, Reservoir and Productions, receiving hands-on engineering experience requiring the application of standardized, documented methods and techniques
- Applies knowledge at a basic level relying heavily on senior staff and mentor for troubleshooting and technical expertise.
- Demonstrates a fundamental awareness and utilization of application of engineering design, engineering calculations, resource management, project management and EHS compliance.
- Develops a fundamental awareness of formation characterization, well stimulation, geology & geomechanics, nodal analysis, well logging/evaluation/testing, production analysis, drilling practices, and reservoir engineering.
- Interacts with and influence other disciplines including Field Operations, Geoscience, Land, EHS, and Regulatory.
- Performs reservoir engineering studies and economic evaluations to quantify drilling potential within new and existing assets.
- Builds reservoir simulation models when appropriate to validate/improve predictions and quantify uncertainty
Qualifications for Reservoir Engineer
- Minimum of bachelor’s degree, masters will be an advantage.
- Minimum of 7 years relevant experience.
- Possesses good hands–on technical knowledge and experience of relevant Reservoir Engineering software (preferably Petrel RE, Eclipse, PVTSim, Saphir, Emeraude, IPM) and workflows (PVT, SCAL, reserves, decline analyses, nodal analysis, production log analysis, production optimization, forecasting and integrated modelling)
- Excellent communication skills, both written and oral with the ability to challenge others in a constructive manner and negotiates with peers, partners, and 3rd parties to influence decisions or ways of working.
- Must be a self-motivated individual and possesses ability to work under pressure without sacrificing quality.
- Good problem-solving skills (combining learned procedures and related experience) and the ability to handle large amounts of complex information in a detailed and coordinated manner and to identify critical issues and workflows.
- Committed to the highest principles of ethics, quality of work with a strong commitment to Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) objectives
