Reservoir Simulation Engineer in Algeria

at CCL Global
Location Algeria
Date Posted January 7, 2019
Category Reservoir Engineer
Job Type Permanent


Location: Hassi Messaoud, Algeria
Reports To: Reservoir Engineering Manager
Rotation Schedule: 28x28
Required: ASAP

• Engineering/Science degree essential. Masters in Petroleum Engineering preferred, or Bachelors in Engineering with professional engineering accreditation.
• Knowledge of French an advantage

Required Experience:
• Candidates for this job should have significant petroleum industry experience as a Reservoir Engineer, including time spent 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 VIP and Nexus reservoir simulators.
• 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).

Additional experience/requirements:
• Ability to work in a culturally diverse, remote and challenging environment.
• Individual must be a strong team player, be self-motivated, and willing to provide leadership when required. Effective problem solving skills and communication (both oral and written).

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 the value of the 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 leader in a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, geoscientists, and petroleum engineers, comprised of both ex-pats and Algerian nationals. Skills to bring projects to completion.
• Motivate, mentor, and lead others.
