Resourceful Recruitment is proudly partnered with Armour Energy Limited in the recruitment of a Senior Reservoir Engineer for their Brisbane head office. Armour Energy is an ASX listed exploration and production company focused on the discovery, development, and production of world class gas and associated liquids resources.

In January 2017, Armour entered a 5 year gas sale agreement with APLNG providing the business with strong cash flow certainty over the early years of its transition to a production company, with contracted gas volumes of up to 3.65PJ/a. In May 2017, Armour acquired Santos’ interests a number of the Armour operated leases, giving it 100% ownership on those permits. These transactions have positioned the business as a long-term player in the Australian gas market and have been a key to its transition into production.

Based on this recent success, a requirement for a skilled Senior Reservoir Engineer has become apparent. As the engineering focal point for the business, the Senior Reservoir Engineer will work closely with the Chief Geologist and lead external partners in evaluating field performance by conducting reservoir modelling studies and exploring opportunities to maximise the value of both exploration and production opportunities and properties. The position will enjoy the diversity of the Company’s project portfolio, working on assets both domestically and abroad.
