The Role:
Reservoir Performance Analysis and Standard Analytical Modelling
 Construct and maintain standard analytical models for reservoir performance analysis and prediction (Eclipse, Petrel-RE, Rubis, MBAL, PVTP)
 Conduct analysis and evaluation of wells including history of production, pressure history, well interval records, etc.
 Predict and evaluate waterflood/ secondary recovery process performance and potential recovery factors
 Assess gaps in subsurface data requirements and implement requests for PVT samples, static gradient pressure measurements, pressure transient tests, etc.
 Develop and implement cost-effective reservoir monitoring and surveillance programs; optimize production and injection rates
 Assess various reservoir drive mechanisms present in field and best way forward for depletion
 Perform pressure analysis and Pressure Transient Analysis using Ecrin software (Saphir)
 Develop and implement standards and consistent methodologies across Thailand BU wrt reservoir evaluation and management
 Act as an internal consultant and provide technical and management support to Thailand BU assets
Reservoir Characterization and Static Modelling
 Support Geologist and Geophysicist in estimating original fluid volumes in place using deterministic and probabilistic methods
 Complete reservoir evaluation using logs, core, pressure transient data; Collaborate with Formation Evaluation experts on design of core and Petrophysics studies.
 Assess rock and fluid properties for input to simulation; Characterize Fluid systems including use of EOS (PVTP)
 Design basic RCA and SCAL programs for Pc, Kr, wettability, etc. and assist in the interpretation of results when provided
 Derive permeability and perm/transmissibility predictions using state of the art analysis
 Assist with fluid contact interpretations (reconcile well logs, seismic attributes and MDT pressures) and reflect the full range of possible outcomes
 Assist with appropriate upscaling of geological model ensuring the main features of geologic model are retained
Reservoir Simulation and Dynamic Model Building
 Construct and maintain numerical reservoir simulation models for reservoir performance analysis and prediction (Eclipse, Petrel-RE, Rubis, MBAL)
 Design models to assess water and gas coning, cusping and channeling.
 Recognize errors and uncertainties associated with input data when history matching (pressure, rates, WOR, etc.)
 Work closely with earth scientists to iterate on geological model realizations that best match the reservoir history.
 Ensure dynamic behavior of the reservoir is adequately represented in models (aquifer strength/gas cap size, Pb, liquid drop out, J-function water saturations etc.)
 Predict production performance and EUR/TUR for infill well proposals and recompletion activities
Hydrocarbon Resource Management
 Create probabilistic (10/50/90) forecast and EUR/TUR estimates from modelling work
 Summarize Reservoir Depletion Plans for field and individual sands/compartments
 In conjunction with Petroleum Engineer, Generate field short term production forecasts, Life of Field forecasts and provide input to the end of year reserves process
 Ensure appropriate use of Horizontal wells for reservoir management
 Coordinate annual reserves efforts by working with development team and independent qualified reserves evaluators
 Enhanced Oil recovery (EOR) feasibility assessment and predictions
Identify New Opportunities and Technologies
 Plan and evaluate trials of new reservoir technology; directing and participating in feasibility studies
 Identify unswept or inefficiently drained areas, and recommend new well locations with geological input.
Exploration and Appraisal Well Support
 Monitor the execution of XPT/MDT, Mini-DST, and other well testing and sampling programs.
 Prepare conceptual development plans for exploration prospects.
Petroleum Engineering (25-50%) (see job description)
 Conduct various aspects of Petroleum Engineering to support day-to-day assignments.
