Primary Skills
Resevoir Engineer, BSc, Engineering, Oil & Gas, Operations, Production

Work in an integrated study team /asset

development team where he/she can leverage his/her experience to generate

quality studies and field development plans. Make RE input into and coordinate field

development planning and integrated field studies. The required technical work

will comprise but not limited to dynamic modelling, well/reservoir performance

reviews, development options evaluation and economics. Dissemination of best

practices and provision of guidance to less experienced team members.
Directs and participates in well surveillance

activities (MER, BHP etc), and reservoir definition and behavior prediction of

assigned reservoirs or fields.
Conducts conventional reservoir engineering and

simulation studies to identify optimum recovery and field development options,

adjusts reservoir development plans in response to changes in well and reservoir

performance. Must have experience in well test design & interpretation,

material balance modelling and performance modelling of vertical and horizontal

Be familiar with various oil recovery enhancement

techniques (water flood, gas injection, gas lift etc). Conducts, documents and

presents, field reviews, and further development proposals.
Monitors production from existing fields,

analyses all relevant data, and ensures that reservoirs are being properly

managed, production is maximised and recoveries are optimal. To establish

reservoir management strategies where they do not exist, and update them where

they do.
Participates strongly in defining the scope and

content of reservoir studies used to assist in determining well behavior and

optimum recovery methods. Includes, establishing program specifications,

reviewing available resources, preparing tender documents, reviewing and evaluating

bids and monitoring study team performance.
Provides estimates of oil and gas resources by

conducting annual reserves evaluation, classification, and booking for the

assigned assets, and document the report in an appropriate format. i.e Annual

Review of Petroleum Reserves (ARPR)


As a Snr Reservoir Engineer, must have a broad understanding

specialties. A university degree in Engineering or equivalent with 7 ‐ 11 years

relevant experience, including a minimum of 6 years RE work experience in an operating

company. Skills in the following:

RE Data Acquisition & Data Management
Reservoir Simulation Model Construction
Knowledgeable in modelling workflows including

QC, and taking Earth Model to dynamic Model
Analytical Reservoir Modelling (Material Balance

analysis, DCA , PTA, BHP, etc )
Reserves calculation and classification

Field development planning & co‐ordination
Production Operation
Working knowledge of economic evaluation, risk

assessment and long range planning.
Very good knowledge of English Language
