EnQuest are one of the leading UK independent oil operators in the North Sea with a dynamic management team and exciting growth plans to develop further in the UKCS and internationally.

We are seeking professionals to join a creative, agile and collaborative organisation, who want to contribute to and benefit from a company widely recognised as leading the future of the North Sea.


Following a series of successful drilling and workover campaigns in our Northern North Sea assets EnQuest continues to seek to maximise value from this core area. Opportunities include infill drilling, reservoir management optimisation, new developments and hub area growth. In order to support this activity EnQuest is seeking a Senior Reservoir Engineer to play a key role in bringing opportunities to fruition. Both staff and contract roles will be considered.

The role is wide ranging and will provide an opportunity to utilise and develop various reservoir engineering skills, including infill well target evaluation, waterflood management, advanced simulation techniques, classical reservoir engineering and the evaluation of business development opportunities.

The successful applicant will have a passion for using their technical skills and experience as part of an integrated multi-disciplinary team. Extensive mature waterflood experience is important, preferably in North Sea Brent reservoirs. Strong simulation skills are key but must be complemented by classical techniques and a solid knowledge of well interventions and production logging.
