Position Description

Gas Reservoir Management Department (GRMD) is looking for engineers experienced in general reservoir engineering, conducting gas field development and management, maintaining reservoir health, and evaluating and implementing of new technologies.

GRMD is a highly specialized area where the engineers and technologists are responsible to design and initiate field development plan, work in close collaboration with geoscientists, drilling, production, and completion engineers to optimize and bring wells to production, strategically manage assigned reservoirs and fields throughout their life cycle, plan proper well surveillance and intervention as needed, and ensure that gas rate target and plateau is met.
Minimum Requirements
The successful candidate should have a bachelor degree in petroleum engineering. Master's degree is a plus but not required. Ph.D. degrees will be considered in certain specialized job openings.

The job requires minimum of 7 years industry experience.

Must have experience in gas field development and management including strong background in gas condensate reservoirs.

Should have basic knowledge in completions and reservoir stimulation technology.

Should be familiar with open-hole logs, production data analysis, and pressure transient testing.

Should be skilled in some of the essential petroleum engineering software that are routinely used to carry on the assigned tasks.

A specialist engineer should be expert in one or few of reservoir management subjects such as pressure transient and production data analyses, hydraulic fracturing treatments, advanced completions methods, PVT properties and phase behavior, reservoir simulation, geomechanics, etc.

Should be skilled in some of the essential petroleum engineering software that are routinely used to carry on the assigned tasks.
Duties & Responsibilities
You will be expected to able to perform the following:

Provide expert advice and guidance to evaluate and implement best-in-class reservoir management practices.

About Us
Saudi Aramco's Exploration & Producing (E&P) business line oversees the world's largest reserves of conventional crude oil, and the fourth-largest reserves of natural gas. The Company's reserves portfolio include Ghawar, the world's largest onshore oil field, and Safaniya, the largest offshore field. Company geologists are actively seeking additional reserves in many areas of the Kingdom, offshore in the Gulf and the Red Sea and onshore in the deserts and mountains. Petroleum engineers and earth scientists in E&P work with cutting-edge technology to manage and produce these reserves, including 3D visualization, reservoir simulation and remote geosteering of multilateral wells. The Company's Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center, or EXPEC, is home to one of the industry's most powerful computer centers. Research and development into subsurface upstream technology is conducted at the EXPEC Advanced Research Center. For more than two decades in a row, Saudi Aramco has been ranked the No. 1 oil company in the world by Petroleum Intelligence Weekly, a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the men and women of Exploration & Producing.
