The GC1 Area Team, in the Greater Prudhoe Bay Field, is looking for a Petroleum Engineer to provide technical oversight for several production pads. The Petroleum Engineer will be part of a multi-disciplinary Area Team generating value for the Area. The PE will be responsible for providing engineering input into Base Management, Reservoir Management, and New Well Delivery tasks/decisions.
Throughout BP field operations, Petroleum and reservoir engineering interns play a crucial role. That is why we offer you the opportunity to be involved in the application of leading edge technologies such as top-down reservoir modeling to manage subsurface uncertainties and Field of the Future techniques for real time data acquisition and management. Our engineers are essential to the creation of value for BP. Their involvement in technical consultancy, reservoir completion design and data acquisition recommendation programs mean they can impact on production operations and optimize plant performance.
Promote a strong safety culture in line with BP Global and BP Alaska’s stated safety objectives; aim for no incidents in area of influence Recognize the HSE impact of all work; communicate as appropriate to stakeholders
Technical Demonstrates understanding of well management from reservoir to Plant and maximizes utilization of area wellstock and production / injection systems to deliver the regional production / injection targets Perform routine well ownership requirements.
o Quality control all well information including well tests, well events, production / injection rates and well trends
o Maintain current well information and actions in Palantir -Argus and ensure the proper databases are updated for perforations, logs, etc.
o Execute Reservoir management and surveillance strategies in the areas where they are employed (Sag, GD, GDWFI, UZI, WF, GPMA, West End)
o Troubleshoot under-performing or inoperable wells and identify value adding wellwork solutions or end of well life options. Safely design, plan and execute expense & small capital (non-drilling) wellwork activity according to BP Best Practices
o Manage non-rig wellwork, RWO and well tie-in SOR delivery for respective pad/drillsite area
o Generate cost estimates for well intervention opportunities & provide an estimate of value (NPV, ROR, Payout) utilizing the appropriate economic tool and make value based decisions
o Ensure appropriate Sundries and WIO approvals are requested and obtained for wellwork and well conversions
o Provide town based support for GWO Wellsite leads as needed during wellwork operations often being coached by more experienced PE’s and GWO staff
Integrate with Area teams, GWO & Operations
o Build understanding of the depletion mechanism(s) and provide PE input to pattern performance, waterflood targets, MI plans, and other reservoir management issues as appropriate
o Contribute to subsurface target ideas, contribute PE information into WID discussions, and provide SOR input for PE sections
o Work with New Well Delivery PE to influence completion design and Support drilling & completions operations with D&C; team during execution
o Understand the surface facility equipment. Work with various operations and projects groups to progress facility projects which affect the well set including well tie-ins, production optimization, corrosion repairs, well meter repairs, etc.
o Communicate with Pad Operator and Well Optimization Engineers to ensure the well set is optimized
o Understand metering equipment and any issues, perform density updates or other metering inputs as required, and lobby for metering improvements where needed
o Attend and participate in regular video conferences with Operations
o Visit the Slope regularly and develop strong connectivity with the Operators, Lead Operators, PTLs / MTLs and OSM
Bachelor of science in Engineering (Preferably Petroleum Engineering)
Essential experience and job requirements:
No prior experience required. Internships in oil & gas preferred.
Other Requirements (e.g. Travel, Location):
Our Upstream graduate program is known as the challenge program. As a challenger in upstream, you will enjoy real responsibility from day one – getting to grips with business challenges and gaining broad exposure to the business from the start.
We put development at the heart of our offer, giving graduates like you the chance to experience real operations first-hand. Through robust assessments, technical coaching and cutting-edge formal learning, we’ll drive your quick progression, making this an award winning program and an opportunity like no other.
The Upstream Challenge program is not rotational by nature – the focus is more on the depth of learning and expertise. In some cases Challengers may benefit from moving into a new role during the program, but this will be entirely driven by their individual development plan.
What we offer:
A real job from day oneRoadmaps to navigate technical developmentSupport for professional qualificationsRegular feedback and guidanceAccess to technical coachesGlobal and local networksModern learning solutions available anywhere anytime
Desirable criteria & qualifications:
Contribute to an energized team environment delivering technical expertise and innovation Familiarity with Spotfire, Power BI and/or Palantir software platforms
Willingness to participate in team goals of adopting agile work methods

BP's Upstream segment focuses on finding reserves of oil and gas, developing the means to extract and process it and then consistently producing and transporting it to market. This involves using cutting edge technology to find the energy reserves, the ability to drill thousands of meters under the ground, designing, building and operating some of the world's largest most complex production onshore / offshore facilities and finally being able to transport these fluids, in order to provide energy to the world.
