Job Type Permanent


OPERATED ONSHORE OIL FIELD DEVELOPMENT The Operated Onshore Oil Field Development (UN) Department in Qatar Petroleum (QP) is responsible for the development of the super-giant Dukhan oil field. The UN Department plans and conducts long-term integrated subsurface studies to optimize field development and supports extensive operational activities in close liaison with the Drilling and Production operations. The UN team consists of 70 professionals fro ma wide variety of countries and includes; geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists, petroleum engineers and reservoir engineers. UN has three divisions; one dedicated to Surveillance and Well Operations, one dedicated to Development Optimisation and the third one dedicated to Reservoir Characterisation.


Primary Purpose of Job
The available position is for a Senior Reservoir Engineer in the Development Optimisation division with key responsibility for preparation of the planned CO2 WAG pilot. Drilling is planned in 2020 and 2021 for pilot startup in 2022. The pilot will be used to optimize large scale CO2 WAG implementation in the Dukhan field. EOR specialist staff is needed starting in 2018 to optimize the CO2 WAG pilot design (wells location, CO2 injection cycles, injection rates), to prepare for extensive data acquisition program, to follow up implementation, to monitor CO2 WAG project implementation. Developing the EOR competency within QP is integral part of the role. In addition, the incumbent may be requested to provide reservoir engineering specialist support and/or lead specific tasks in the UN division.
