Job Type Permanent


Job Purpose
Carries variety of reservoir engineering functions as assigned and attends well surveillance operations when required to provide guidance in test procedures or immediate analysis of results. Undertakes routine and advanced studies to attain stated objectives and translate results into operational guidelines.
Key Accountabilities:• Identify, Plan, manage and quality control of various subsurface studies such as SCAL, routine and advanced PVT, flow assurance ….• Develop and update simulation models with latest PVT and SCAL data including EOS modeling as appropriate.• Build and maintain dynamic simulation models to compare past performance of reservoirs and predict future behavior. Compiles and runs such models to identify required action for maximize recovery/meet current production quotas, and suggests remedial actions such as workovers, stimulation to improve recovery.• Preparation of short, medium, and long term development plans for multiple reservoirs which aligns with CH’s mandates while estimating and updating oil and gas reserves and making recommendations for the optimum utilization of reserves.• Able to identify and minimize risks associated with development of the concession area and reservoirs• Develop strategies for identification, selection and deployment of EOR projects including road map that delivers major CH’s mandates.• Analyses, interprets and evaluates reservoir data collected from reservoir monitoring, logs, cores, PVT, field tests and reservoir performance using available techniques including in house and external computer analyses and simulation to determine reservoir parameters, oil and gas in place and reserves.• Ensures the periodic update of the Company’s reserve estimates for assigned field / reservoirs based on new data acquisition, reservoir characteristics and behaviors and / or introduction of new technologies.• Coordinate with Management team, G&G, Production and Drilling engineers and participates in drawing up drilling and completion programs for all wells and recommends to supervisor necessary workovers, coring, logging, MDT, and production/injection tests.• Support in data acquisition and reservoir monitoring programs and ensure that plans are developed and executed in a timely manner to manage the reduction of uncertainty with the Field Development Plan and to Identify opportunities for production optimization in the production system.• Participate in studies aimed at deriving oil production and water/gas injection rates necessary for oil production to conform to specified constraints such as limitations of gas/oil ratio, water/oil ratio and reservoir pressures by evaluating updated production/injection performance plots.• Apply state of the art technology and resources and accurate input data to produce accurate high-quality reservoir description for overall development and sustainability of healthy reservoir.• Deliver required input to Business plan in a timely manner.• Actively and effectively participates in technical meetings of CH’s and presents company views on various subjects.
Minimum Qualification• Bachelor Degree in Petroleum Engineering or related engineering discipline
