This is a chance for a long term and stable career with one of the leading national oil companies in the world.
As a reservoir engineer in an unconventional asset you will support the multidisciplinary team in producing appraisal, pilot programs and field development plans using your experience in reservoir simulation and/or practical understanding of the nature of unconventional reservoirs. Some experience in designing stimulation programs, utilizing well-test results, analyzing decline curves, analyzing the results of dynamic reservoir models to evaluate EUR and well spacing to provide answers to key development decisions is desired. You will also be very familiar with the factory approach to development of resource plays and the requirements to increase efficiency and reduce cost to make the plays economic.
You will be required to perform the following:
Perform engineering work requiring application of standard and unconventional techniques, procedures and criteria in carrying out a sequence of engineering tasks.
Prepare requirements for well construction; develop well designs for new wells; and provide technical assistance to drilling staff to ensure that each well is completed in a safe, efficient manner.
Design and implement field development plans for unconventional resource plays.
Monitor operating expenses to operate and maintain wells to produce the highest volumes of oil and gas at the lowest cost. Prepare annual volumes and expenses for budgeting.
Monitor and analyze well tests and production curves.
Gather, perform calculations on and analyze data such as well tests, fluid levels, bottom-hole pressures, and decline curves to ensure efficient production and equipment utilization.
Design, recommend and schedule the installation of production equipment and connections to sales pipelines for new wells.
Coordinate all aspect of new completions, especially the design of fracture stimulations.
Work closely with a multidisciplinary team in planning and conducting field studies.
A bachelor's degree in petroleum engineering or a related science as appropriate to the required discipline. An advanced degree is preferred and will reduce prerequisite work experience stated below by one year for a masters degree and two years for a Ph.D.
We are targeting 20 years of experience with at least 5-10 years in unconventional plays, including shale or tight gas, with some U.S. experience in unconventional hydrocarbon basins required. We will consider candidates with more or less experienced depending on the quality of their experience.
Other desirable skills include oil and gas field development and production operations, preferably some in unconventional, knowledge of workover/recompletion program design and wellsite operations to include coiled tubing, wireline, stimulation and log analysis; familiarity with surface facility design and operations, including compression, gas metering, tank batteries, dehydration, treaters, separators and production units and pumping units; operating expense analysis; decline curve analysis; well-test analysis; pipeline design and installation; understanding of geology and reservoir mechanics to perform pressure analysis; material balance; and have the ability to read logs, understand formation evaluation, core analysis, geomechanics and stimulation data.
