Job Type Contract


Job Title: Senior Reservoir Engineer
Based: Doha Qatar
Contract Length: 1 year renewable

Primary Purpose of the Job
Steward integrated reservoir studies and reservoir management of the CLIENT operated oilfields to optimize field development plans. Perform and provide technical supervision of the reservoir simulation modelling aspect, reservoir / well performance data analysis, reservoir surveillance program, infill and workover well programs and reservoir management activities. Steward and formulate detailed/integrated development plans for both developed and undeveloped hydrocarbon resources.

Principal Accountabilities
1. Steward and perform the annual review of reserves, generate short/medium/long-term production/injection forecasts for OAR, FDP, business planning and drilling/workover schedule.
2. Perform and provide technical supervision of planning, acquisition and analysis/interpretation of Reservoir Eng data from existing, new and replacement drill projects for updating dynamic reservoir simulation models, determining reservoir targets and inputting into integrated reservoir/field development studies.
3. Steward the development and utilization of 3D multiphase black oil / compositional dynamic reservoir models for numerical simulation of reservoirs and field development planning
4. Steward and review Reservoir Eng inputs into the short term (drill/replacement well projects, workover projects & drilling/workover operations), medium term (reservoir voidage management) and long term (field development and asset value optimisation) activities.
5. Perform and provide technical supervision of target reservoirs/reservoir layers identification and well-reservoir contact determination for new/replacement vertical/deviated/horizontal drill projects into multi-layered heterogeneous reservoirs to optimize field development.
6. Steward development of detailed and integrated development plans for developed and undeveloped hydrocarbon resources.
7. Ensure QA/QC of Reservoir Eng data and supervise the maintenance of Reservoir Eng databases including real time data links
8. Supervise work compliance by contractors for Reservoir Eng data acquisition
9. Steward preparation of post-drill Reservoir Eng reports including integration of interpreted Reservoir Eng data with Geological & Petrophysical evaluations
10. Plan and supervise coaching and development of Qatari staff
