Reservoir Engineer - Dallas, Texas

at Worldwide Recruitment Solutions
Location Dallas, Texas
Date Posted August 26, 2015
Category Reservoir Engineer
Job Type Permanent
Min. Years Experience Required 10

Description

The successful candidate will have a strong background in optimizing reservoir management programs through the analysis of high rate, subsea, production, injection and pressure data and possess a demonstrated track record of executing deepwater development drilling programs in a multi-disciplinary team environment.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Handle surveillance of production, injection and pressure data.
  • Develop an optimized drainage plan for all phases of development.
  • Support reserve and resource estimates, by deterministic and probabilistic methods.
  • Participate in development engineering from a grass roots level through to full FDP.
  • Conduct technical evaluations of reserves and fluid distributions in individual reservoir systems, utilizing petrophysical, geological, seismic and production data.
  • Prepare reservoir development plans and capital costs forecast.
  • Build dynamic reservoir simulation models. Conduct reservoir simulation history matching for reserves monitoring and optimizing recovery efficiency under primary and secondary recovery mechanisms.
  • Perform pressure transient test analyses including buildups, falloffs, and multi-well interference tests (Saphir) and maintain kh/skin, productivity, & shut-in pressure databases.

Qualifications

  • Prefer 12-15 years' experience, ideally with an operator on field developments.
  • Solid understanding of geological and geophysical work processes. Ability to integrate seismic, well data and reservoir engineering data to characterize reservoirs, identify and evaluate drilling opportunities.
  • Ability to prepare reservoir development plans and capital costs forecast.
  • Experience in completing field depletion plans - creating robust development scenarios for fields: well types, number location, timing.
  • Outstanding skill in building dynamic reservoir simulation models using Eclipse and, preferably, Enable software as well. Conduct reservoir simulation history matching for reserves monitoring and optimizing recovery efficiency under primary and secondary recovery mechanisms.
  • Significant experience in reservoir management activities including volumetric, risk and resource assessment, as well as, pressure transient analysis, nodal analysis and numerical simulation.
  • Experience with classical reservoir engineering techniques such as material balance, decline curve analysis, and nodal analysis.
  • Experience with SEC / PRMS reserve and resource classification and determination techniques is essential.
  • Experience in economic and commercial analysis is preferred.
  • Experience in pressure-volume-temperature (PVT), Geochemical and core analyses, as well as, design and interpretation of drill stem and injectivity tests are a plus.
