This vacancy has now expired.
The Company:
The Geoscience Studies Team has the objective to undertake the most appropriate studies to assess discovery resources, optimise the reservoir appraisal phase, define the optimum development schemes with associated reserves and production profiles, and optimise reservoir production. The senior reservoir engineer plays an essential role in that team and has the following key tasks:
•Analyse and integrate all dynamic data, build dynamic models, either analytical or numerical, perform history match

The Role:
•Gather and analyse reservoir engineering data required for simulation and field development (Static Reservoir Pressure, PVT, Well Test data, SCAL).
•Assess key uncertainties of the proposed reservoir development to be studied as sensitivities in reservoir simulations.
•Determination of a range in recovery factors and PVT parameters, to be used for Resource and Reserves assessment.
•When required, construct dynamic reservoir models in line with geological thinking and history matched to reservoir production and well test information.
•Determine the best drive mechanism for the development by running development sensitivities as well as further optimisation of oil production.
•Determine a range in production forecasts for the purpose of development planning and annual company forecasts. This should cover the uncertainties including the corresponding range in producer and injector wells.
•Input in development planning decisions such as timing of new wells, design of production facilities and duration of plateau rate.
•Participate in the presentations to senior management, partners and government bodies, where appropriate.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
•At least 10 years experience as a Reservoir Engineer in a sub-surface environment.
•Good understanding of geological concepts, rock and fluid characterisation
•Thorough knowledge and understanding of reservoir simulation, material balance and well test analysis.
•Knowledge and in-depth experience of modern Reservoir Engineering software applications: Eclipse 100/300, Petrel RE, Kappa and Petex suite of applications, OFM
•Ability to communicate effectively in English and Spanish, both orally and in writing.
•For a senior reservoir engineer in the Studies team the supervision should be weekly/monthly but in the beginning of a new project/task probably daily. Note that most sub-surface projects and tasks are of limited duration (several months).
•The senior reservoir engineer is strongly embedded in the team. However relationships with reservoir engineers in other teams are strongly encouraged to create a professional network and promote another view to the job tasks.
