We Offer
You will be working on the West Flank of the Dan Field asset, Denmark’s largest oil field in terms of ultimate recovery. It is a mature, water flooded chalk reservoir, which has been developed in phases using vertical, hydraulically fractured wells at first, with subsequent developments using increasingly long horizontal wells with multiple zones.

A programme to restore wells and improve conformance have been started up. This role is about helping restore the water flood of the field and keeping strong focus on the short and mid-term optimisation opportunities.

Thus, you will have the possibilities to use your skills, develop competencies and deliver results, as the West Flank is a highly important part of the field, and provides great opportunities for anyone working on it.

You will be part of a team of specialists – from Process Engineers to Production Technologists – who cooperate across functions, share technical knowledge often, and possess an ingrained, positive team spirit.

Further, at Maersk Oil you will be part of an environment where you experience willingness to innovate, have opportunities to contribute your know-how and ideas, and get varied international challenges.

Key Responsibilities
You will be responsible for the short and mid-term optimization of production and water injection, to ensure the best management of the asset reservoir and well choke. Your tasks include:

Monitoring and optimizing production and injection
Identifying and managing well and reservoir opportunities
Defining targets on production, water injection and gas lift (weekly, monthly and yearly)
Driving water injection optimization (SRT, FOS, Tracer etc) and gas lift optimization (PipeSim, Prosper and GAP modelling)
Conducting data validation, allocation and reconciliation, and contributing to Well and Reservoir Reviews
Designing and interpreting reservoir intervention campaigns

Who we are looking for
MSc in Reservoir/Petroleum Engineering
Probably 3-5 years of experience in Reservoir/Petroleum Engineering, preferably from mature field offshore operations
Proven ability to skillfully apply a broad RE tool-kit for reservoir optimization (Prosper/GAP/ PipeSim)
Fluent in written and spoken technical English

It is important that you are a strong team player with good communication and collaboration skills. Being a bit of a go-getter, you possess personal drive and a firm sense of urgency. Finally, you are analytical and take a systematic approach to your work.
