The Role:

• Represent Murphy as a seconded Reservoir Engineer in PVEP POC’s offices in HCM, in order to support Block 15-1/05 activities through technical assessments of development, appraisal and exploration projects

• In order to ensuring Murphy’s best interests, effective influence will be crucial as well as working closely together with the rest of the team in PVEP POC’s offices and Murphy’s offices.

• Contribute to the multi-disciplinary Lac Da Vang (LDV) Development Team providing full reservoir engineering input: including well test interpretation, reservoir characterization, PVT analysis, material balance, reservoir simulation, well design and production optimization.

• Establish reservoir strategies through the full lifecycle, from exploration and appraisal through to development planning.

• Create fit for purpose development scenario’s including well count, rates and production profiles.

• Work with extended team members in drilling, facilities, other subsurface disciplines and economics to assess development solutions and complete economic evaluations.

• Participate in technical meetings with other groups, government bodies and the national oil company


• Contribute to the LDV development project with special emphasis on the natural fracture characterization and modeling.

• Conduct the basic reservoir engineering data analysis, which includes the integration of SCAL, core analyses, well tests, PLTs and PVT data.

• Produce scoping level development plans, formulating well count, rates and production profiles using fit for purpose techniques and analogues.

• Conduct reservoir simulation and network modelling studies designed to define the optimum full field reservoir development plans (primary, secondary, and tertiary depletion scenarios).

• Assess the key Reservoir engineering risks and opportunities associated with the development and develop an uncertainty management plan to mitigate the risks and harvest potential upside.

• Work within an inter-disciplinary team to build and quality control field evaluations.

• Collaborate with exploration and facility disciplines on potential opportunities for field appraisal and development planning.
