Stim-Lab Inc. leads and manages the Proppant Consortium studying various aspects of hydraulic fracturing that has been ongoing for 31 years. The Reservoir Engineer provides key technical support to this effort. The Reservoir Engineer provides the engineering support for a number of major IRS consortiums such as Power River Basin and Utica Shale. Stim-Lab also provides laboratory data regarding the compatibility of stimulation fluids and proppants used in well completions along with a broad range of other laboratory testing. The Reservoir Engineer provides technical input and guidance to these testing projects. The Reservoir Engineer works independently to assist with problem solving while maintaining customer focus. The Reservoir Engineer will also complete assignments and projects of increasingly larger scope requiring knowledge of concepts, methods, and application of engineering principles and maintaining a high level of integrity and safety awareness.
ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES include the following. Other duties may be assigned.
Expected to apply creativity and innovation to the testing, evaluation and research activities related to hydraulic fracturing, core flow simulations, fluid rheology, proppant characterizations and completion operations.
Responsible for identifying new technologies to develop methodologies which will provide state-of-the-art answers to clients.
Responsible for the development of new procedures to further understanding and knowledge in the field of hydraulic fracturing
Implements new technologies into the work process.
Takes the lead role in analyzing laboratory and field data related to complex problems in our industry to further our understanding of how to provide solutions.
