A highly reputable reservoir knowledge based Company seeks a Reservoir Engineer to provide analysis of production data of global field histories for inclusion in their Field Evaluation Reports. Applicants are invited with broad reservoir engineering experience, preferably exposure to IOR/EOR projects and a desire to help the industry optimise performance by leveraging knowledge from global hydrocarbon discoveries. An exciting permanent role!

With offices across Asia, America and in the UK, the Company has expanded their consultancy practice and services considerably over the years. Their experienced geoscientists and reservoir engineers have analysed over 1000 proven fields and reservoirs, and the facts and findings are made available online to their clients. This information is accessed by 10K+ users from national/state oil companies to small independents and is vital for verifying exploration and production hypotheses and increasing confidence in E&P; decisions. They are the leading provider of reservoir analog knowledge providing clients with a cost-effective and systematic way to validate their play concepts, benchmark prospects, examine their field development plans, and compare their field performance through well-established examples and proven experiences. The ability to maximise the value of their E&P; assets and reduce risk for exploration, development and production has made this a very valuable source of information.

This is an exciting role for a Reservoir Engineer who understands the issues surrounding field operations, who can identify the important values to be validated and included in the overall analysis and reporting.
