SENIOR RESERVOIR ENGINEER in United Arab Emirates

at Kintec Global Recruitment
Location United Arab Emirates
Date Posted July 17, 2018
Category Reservoir Engineer
Job Type Permanent

Description

year contract residentially based in Qatar

Resume or accelerate the development of the reservoirs by studying, maturing and proposing for validation the drilling of new wells and/or work-over opportunities from existing slots or from future slots for additional phases of field development and strategy, definition of development patterns, reserves/resources assessments, and appraisal strategy. Focus on understanding and description of production mechanisms (water-flooding, gas injection) involved in sector, full-field or phenomenological reservoir models.

Participation with large autonomy in integrated reservoir engineering studies or reservoir mono-disciplinary studies, under the responsibility of the Asset Team Lead (RM or OME) or Asset Manager, and active follow-up and animation of the reservoir aspects of the studies, to understand and represent the production mechanisms involved.Studies are to be carried out as per existing Opportunity Maturation Process (OMP).Without supervised staff.
Field Stakes
Each reservoir needs to be modeled (static and dynamic models) and sector models will be used to prepare the validation of the new development wells and work-over opportunities.EOR projects are under study with regular data acquisition campaigns.In charge of regularly evaluating the current oil potential and the reserves for each reservoir.
This part must allow people unfamiliar with the job to understand the role in the organization by describing :
Ensure HSE policies are followed and understood within the team and with every activity/operation required by the Asset especially reservoir related.Responsible for day-to-day well performance monitoring, well test requirements, well potential updatesImplement and validate the reservoir engineering techniques linked to its activity (planning, evaluation and interpretation of well tests, interpretation of PLT, decline curve analysis, material balance, production nodal analysis, definition of production mechanisms, prediction of production performance and injection, PVT analysis, etc.).Validate the analysis of reservoir data (static and especially dynamic) and the syntheses of dynamic data for pressure conditioning actions to be implemented for drilling of new wells.Participate in the synthesis of subsurface data and ensure the consistency of assumptions between the different disciplines (geophysics, geology and petrophysics, production technology and geo-information)Co-responsible in the construction of the reservoir models (static and dynamic) in close collaboration and iterations with the geophysicist, geologist and reservoir specialists, optimizing the modeling of the flows according to the heterogeneities and the production mechanisms to be implemented, to end up with history matched sector and possibly full reservoir dynamic models.Ample autonomy in the field of dynamical simulation of reservoirs, in methodology, in knowledge of reservoir simulation softwares (ECLIPSE...) and interface systems.Integrate the data from existing production, new development and appraisal wells into the models.Coordinate the specialty studies necessary for the development of the reservoir simulation.Participate and guarantee in the definition and optimization of development schemes and patterns.Guarantee the assessment of associated production and injection unconstraint profiles for production and injection exercises: Rolling Forecasts (RoFo), Annual Reserves Report (ARR) and Long Range Business Plan (LRBP).Strong participation in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) pilot and their implementation in Field Development, including monitoring aspects.Ensure the quality of the data in the different databases (pressures, production, injection…).Provide validated relevant data (production profiles) to be used for economic evaluation of each project/well/study.Ensure the good integration between the other disciplines (geophysics, geology, production technology and geo-information) to evaluate uncertainties associated with a project/well/study (1P, 2P, 3P) and implement the necessary studies (experimental design, ... ).Propose the reservoir data acquisitions programs (fluids, conventional and SCAL, well testing, logs, cores, ...) to characterize and predict reservoir behavior and reduce the uncertainties.Ensures compliance with costs, deadlines and objectives.Guarantee the Reservoir Surveillance Plan and Reservoir Management Plan for the Asset as per CLIENTS Standards.Active contribution to development of internal and external communications within the Reservoir and PE community.
CONTEXT AND ENVIRONMENT
Description of the environment in which the job is performed, in particular the constraints and/or positive/negative drivers applying to the job.
Deliver results of quality on which one can be based without the necessity of verifying its validity, veracity or quality.Transparency on technical aspects and reservations.An animation of the reservoir aspects of the study with proposals for work and coaching of reservoir engineers with less experience.Strong skills in organization and facilitation of teamwork (geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers and production technologists) and collaboratively with other entities (well performance, drilling and completions)Ability to work in a multi-nationality and consequently multi-cultural environment.Transversally of subsurface disciplines (geophysics, geology, production technology) necessary to integrate the stakes and uncertainties.Knowledge of study and maturation processes to ensure all intermediate steps (through workshops, regular formal and informal meetings), highlighting important points, in particular with regards to the uncertainties and difficulties encountered, respecting scope, planning and budget.Reactivity if necessary to re-orient studies according to conclusions of Quality Reviews.Coordination and animation of teams of Reservoir specialists working for the studies.Provides support on defined issues and contributes through application of expertise and knowledge.Recognized as a specialist in own area within the organization.Works independently, with guidance in only the most complex situations.Contributes through technical knowledge and has impact on the results of their function.Has established network in internal peer group and participates in external peer network.Contributes to wider decision making including the development of practices, processes and procedures.Understands the business and has a knowledge of their own functional area and the interdependencies with other functions.Solves complex challenges based on accurate identification of underlying factors/causes and is aware of the impact of proposed solutions outside their own immediate area.May lead small projects or contributes/influence projects of moderate size and scope through substantial contributions to project framing, often with moderately complex interfaces to other disciplines.
Master Degree or Bachelor Degree with relevant industry experience in Reservoir or Petroleum Engineering discipline or other relevant technical discipline qualification.8 to 10 years of experience in similar roles or related roles in the oil and gas environment.Reservoir and geoscience working experience in an operated asset.Strong experience in reservoir management and monitoring.Strong experience on reservoir dynamic modeling (Eclipse) and model history matching.Strong communication and collaboration skills.Team player, persuasive, open minded, hard worker, delivery orientated.Working experience in the middle East would be a plus.Fluent in written and spoken English.HSE trainings.
