As a Reservoir Engineer you will be part of a multi-disciplinary, integrated team of geoscientists and engineers charged with carrying out technical and commercial evaluation to maximize value from producing oil and gas fields.  You will be expected to take producing fields at various stages of the development life cycle and maximize value through surveillance, enhanced recovery, and capital reinvestment.  It is also expected that you will work closely with field personnel to add engineering insight to improve operations while controlling costs.

The Reservoir Engineering position with Sheridan pulls on pieces of both the traditional Production and Reservoir Engineering functions, with the role involving a mixture of surveillance through to field development planning along with design and execution of proactive well work.
