The Company:
Our client is a major international oil and gas operator.

The Role:
Job Role:
Work within a team of Reservoir Engineers, Geophysicists and Petrophysicists to optimize the development of the operated fields by stochastically modelling the reservoirs using Petrel software.

• Use cores, logs, well production history, structural maps, regional geological studies, and knowledge of sedimentology and geostatistics to build and maintain accurate stochastic reservoir models of the operated fields
• Understand and capture the volumetric uncertainties in the reservoir model.
• Communicate geologic concepts to reservoir and production engineers to determine the optimal plan of development for the fields
• Receive, provide quality control for, and analyse all new geologic data. This data is to be incorporated into the reservoir characterization and modelling.
• Perform and oversee sedimentologic and / or other specialist studies and integrate results into multi-disciplinary field reservoir descriptions.
• Integrate (MDT) formation pressure data and well production history into geologic understanding
• Contribute to structural interpretation by interfacing with project geophysicist and other structural geoscience experts
• Routinely prepare detailed geologic maps of any and all reservoir properties including various isochores: gross and net sand, net pay, porosity, and any other relevant properties, such as Sw and permeability
• Recommend new geologic studies and support all aspects of development activities
• Preparation of implantation reports (original permit documents) for development wells.
• Communicate the concepts and details of the reservoir models to management, partners and government agencies through written technical reports and slide presentations.
• Continually keep abreast of new geoscience technology for application to the projects.
• Mentor the job role to other staff members
• Ensure that all work is done efficiently, safely, and in accordance with the Groupement Berkine and Partner’s established company practices and procedures, applicable laws and government rules and regulations (Algerian Oil & Gas Regulations).

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
• MSc & Bachelor’s degree in Geology/Petroleum Geology
• Ability to speak and write the English language fluently.
• 10+ year’s relevant petroleum industry experience, preferably with a major operator. Work history to be biased towards development geology with some operations exposure
• Strong skills in reservoir geological characterisation and modelling studies for input into reservoir simulation
• Strong emphasis on 3D stochastic geocellular modelling using Petrel software. Knowledge of Landmark DecisionSpace and StratWorks.
• Good working knowledge of standard Windows PC programs required
• Willingness to work in a remote environment
• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Strong technical presentation skills.
• Effective ability to work as part of a close, culturally diverse team
• Ability and willingness to be flexible in work schedule as necessary
• Ability to achieve goals and maintain high quality of work with limited supervision
• Stable Employment

Desirable Skills / Qualifications:
• Ability to speak French a distinct advantage
• Knowledge of Arabic helpful.
