Reservoir Simulation Engineer — Algeria

at Team Energy Resources
Location Algeria, Algeria
Date Posted July 26, 2015
Category Reservoir Engineer
Job Type Contract
Min. Years Experience Required 8


Required Experience:

  • Candidates should have over 8 years of petroleum industry experience as a Reservoir Engineer, including at least 4 years in reservoir simulation and model development, both black-oil and fully compositional
  • Experience modeling waterflood / miscible gas floods and history matching is essential. Water-alternating-gas (WAG) flooding experience is preferred, as would experience using the Landmark reservoir simulator
  • Good practical knowledge of a production environment, and history of working closely with Production and Operations Engineers. Good knowledge of reservoir surveillance / data management (planning, monitoring).

Essential Job Functions:

  • Build reservoir simulation models to characterize and describe oil, gas, and gas condensate reservoirs and to history match these models to available field data.
  • Use reservoir simulation models to optimize field development plans, forecast reservoir performance, and estimate reserves based on different recovery schemes.
  • Use Regional simulation model to perform global studies (gas handling, NGL, de-bottlenecking, etc)
  • Knowledge in hydrocarbon fluid characterization using an equation-of-state and in Special core analysis knowledge would be beneficial.
  • Work closely with G&G team to ensure good consistency in static reservoir model building.
  • Work closely with Petroleum and Operations Engineers to generate, monitor, and ensure execution of short-term and long-term data gathering plans for their field (well tests, production logging tests, formation pressure data, etc.)
  • Utilize petroleum engineering software pertaining to well test analysis, material balance, production logging, nodal analysis
  • Participate as a team player in a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, geoscientists, and petroleum engineers, comprised of both ex-pats and Algerian nationals.
  • Motivate, mentor, and lead others.


  • Engineering/Science degree essential. Petroleum Engineering Master degree preferred.
  • Knowledge of French
