Expectations and Responsibilities

  • Guide Quantum Technology and Analytics team at QRI, with a focus on developing and implementing solutions for reservoir diagnostics, data mining and fast analytical models.
  • Determine causes of fluid breakthrough in wells.  Evaluate drawdowns and rates to control the near-wellbore effects of coning or channeling.
  • Apply principles of reservoir engineering including well test analysis, petrophysical log analysis, SCAL, PVT, decline curve analysis and material balance to oversee development plans, reserves analysis (deterministic/probabilistic depending on customer needs) and economic evaluation.
  • Develop optimal offsets for well perforated intervals to natural fluid contacts, such as water-oil contacts and gas-oil contacts to limit coning and channeling.
  • Create a depletion plan with strict guidelines regarding the rate of fluid movement in the reservoir.
  • Develop offset of well perforated intervals to natural fluid contacts, such as WOC and GOC to limit coning and channeling.
  • Evaluate various completion technologies to restrict fluid entry and improve wellbore isolation (e.g., external packers and equalizers).
  • Develop an oil column thickness map that is unperturbed by near-well effects.
  • Provide a volumetric estimate of bypassed oil and infer sweep efficiency.
  • Determine the best placement for new wells and workovers in reservoirs.
  • Create a depletion plan with strict guidelines regarding the rate of fluid movement in the reservoir.
  • Develop candidates for testing wells and establish testing criteria.
  • Create protocols for cyclic well production regarding optimum rate, shut-in period and completion configuration.
  • Provide a detailed design of drilling and completion of a wells
  • Provide plans to reduce the time and cost of well intervention
  • Utilize common Industry software such as Gocad, Petrel, Eclipse, VIP and Frontsim for reservoir modeling and simulation.

Travel

May require travel 2-3 weeks at a time, every 2-3 months.
