Job Description

The Senior Reservoir Engineer will evaluate exploration and development projects, perform integrated reservoir studies and reservoir simulations, and provide best-practice workflow procedures in integrated reservoir modelling.

Roles and Responsibilities:

•   Evaluate business opportunities for oil and gas exploration, appraisal, and development projects in different environments,
    onshore and offshore, clastic and carbonate reservoirs. Works include:
          -  Use input from multi-disciplinary team to formulate and support investment decisions and optimize project
          -  Perform economic evaluation of exploration prospects by building development scenarios with appropriate schedule,
               capital and operating costs, subsurface parameters, production profiles, transportation and marketing, and risk
•   Provide full evaluation of development options to justify project sanction decisions, including comparing alternatives from
    technical and economic aspects.
•   Perform reservoir simulations for exploration and development projects. Skills include fluid PVT, KrPc, upscaling, history
    matching, uncertainty analysis and optimization, etc.
•   Work and interact with different discipline members (geophysicist, geologist, petrophysicist, reservoir engineer,
    production/facility engineer, project economist) and different business units or asset teams effectively.
•   Use and integrate different methods to reach conclusions and recommendations in project decisions or project optimizations.
    These methods include, but not limited to, the following:
          -  Methods to estimate volumetrics, production profiles, and cumulative productions.
          -  Reservoir engineering methods such as pressure analysis, material balance analysis, nodal analysis, PVT
               characterization, KrPc modelling, reservoir quality and reservoir heterogeneity analysis, drive mechanism, recovery
               method, recovery factor.
          -  Methods to estimate the ranges and rankings in volumetrics and recovery.
•   Provide reserves estimations under SEC and PRMS guidelines. Use volumetrics, material balance, decline curve analysis,
    etc. Interact with internal and external reserve auditors.
•   Identify, evaluate, and recommend development method, enhanced recovery method, well location and optimization, infill
    drilling opportunity, etc.
•   Develop and provide best-practice workflow procedures in integrated reservoir characterization or integrated reservoir

Required Qualifications:

•   Minimum Bachelor's degree in Petroleum Engineering or other relevant engineering. Master's degree preferred.
•   A minimum of 15 years experience working as a reservoir engineer in E&P upstream.
•   Some experience working in reservoir characterization teams defining best procedures or guidelines in integrating
    reservoir modeling.
•   Experience and expertise in performing project evaluations in exploration, appraisal, and development in different
•   Skills and software uses include (but not limited to): material balance (e.g., MBAL), nodal analysis (e.g., Prosper/GAP),
    pressure transient analysis (e.g., Saphir), rate transient analysis, reservoir simulation (e.g., Eclipse, Petrel RE), production
    database (e.g., OFM), economic evaluation (e.g., PEEP, Aries), development planning & cost analysis, risk analysis).
•   Experience and ability in working and interacting with integrated study team members.
