The Role:
The East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) asset consists of the producing Dolphin and Dolphin Deep Fields, the sanctioned Starfish Field and near-field exploration opportunities within current PSC’s - Blocks 6, 5a and E. In addition to the existing production, there is significant growth potential from the current asset base from incremental projects in the existing fields, near field exploration and new developments.
The post holder will be a key member of the ECMA Subsurface Team and shall be responsible for providing Reservoir Engineering support to the ongoing development & production activities and charged with the management & maintenance of subsurface models and reserves management for the ECMA asset. As an experienced Reservoir Engineer in the subsurface team, the incumbent is also expected to contribute towards mentoring of other Reservoir Engineers in the team with relatively lesser experience as well as contribute to functional excellence in petroleum engineering workflows. The key elements of the post are as follows:

ECMA represents the upstream component of the entire gas value chain, and as such is highly valuable and visible within the client. The role offers the opportunity to broaden ones experience across the mid-stream and contribute fully to realizing Asset value.
