Company: Qatar Petroleum
Skills: Petroleum Engineering, Reservoir Engineering
Experience: 10 + Years
Education: Bachelors/3-5 yr Degree
Location: Qatar



Primary Purpose of Job
Perform integrated reservoir studies of the QP operated oil fields to optimize field development plans. Contribute to the construction and updating of reservoir simulation modelling and reservoir / well performance data analysis. Contribute to reservoir surveillance, infill and workover programs, well planning, reservoir management activities and field annual reviews. Contribute to detailed integrated development plans for both developed and undeveloped hydrocarbon resources. Perform annual reserves review and generate long-term production/injection forecasts. Identify key reservoir and development uncertainties and recommend mitigation plans. Work closely with team lead and management to report progress and study results, answer queries and present to peers and management. Provide on-the-job training for young engineers.


BSc in Engineering (preferably Petroleum Engineering) or Applied Sciences.

Experience & Skills

• Minimum 10 years work experience as a Reservoir Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry with demonstrated reservoir studies expertise in large oil and gas fields, emphasizing mature carbonate oil fields under water-flood

. • Good experience in constructing numerical reservoir simulation models from initialization to history matching and field development planning.

• Demonstrable experience in PVT and SCAL, with implementation in simulation models.

• Experience in transient well test interpretation, material balance modelling, wellbore dynamics modeling and performance, well planning, and reservoir monitoring.

• Strong teamwork experience in a multicultural environment. Must be fluent in spoken and written English with ability to communicate effectively with peers, less experienced staff and management.

• Must be familiar with reserves evaluation, classification and booking (SPE PRMS or SEC standards). Desirable

• Experience in complex and advanced reservoir simulation techniques (faults/fractures, dual porosity, compositional..etc).

• Desirable to have experience in horizontal well development and oil-rim development.

• Desirable to have knowledge of uncertainty analysis and risk assessment/management.

Software Knowledge/ Experience • Simulation - Eclipse 100/300 • Petrel RE • Fluid property modelling - PVTi, PVTSim • Material balance - MBAL • Wellbore dynamics modelling - PROSPER  • Well test interpretation - Saphir • Reservoir surveillance - OFM • Using uncertainty software such as MEPO is a plus.
