Job Type Permanent


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
of other E P disciplines and skills in all key reservoir engineering
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
