• 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.
