Brunel are looking to recruit a Reservoir Simulation Engineer with significant petroleum industry experience as a Reservoir Engineer. This 12 month renewable contract is to work for a major international Oil & Gas company which offers a 28 x 28 working schedule based in Algeria.


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
Motivate, mentor, and lead others.


Engineering/Science degree essential. Master’s in Petroleum Engineering preferred, or Bachelor’s in Engineering with professional engineering accreditation
Significant petroleum industry experience as a Reservoir Engineer, including time spent in reservoir simulation and model development, both black-oil and fully compositional.
Experience modelling water flood / 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, reservoir surveillance / data management (planning, monitoring).
Knowledge of French language would be an advantage
Ability to work in a culturally diverse, remote and challenging environment

Please note that work permit restrictions will apply.
