URGENT – Applications needed by 25th of October 2021
A Consulting Services Company specialising in Upstream Oil and Gas seeks four Reservoir Engineers to work at an Oil Operator Site on a minimum 1-year contract. Applicants are invited with 15+ years’ experience and extensive reservoir simulation and field development experience, to support ongoing intensive modelling activities and field development plan optimization for multiple reservoirs. Also, the successful candidate is expected to contribute to field development plan cost optimization, training and mentoring young Reservoir Engineers. The project will initially be for a period of 12 months but could be extended - some of the Engineers could be required to work remotely or onsite in UAE. The Company will organise all logistics such as work permits and travel.
Responsibilities: The candidate will provide consultancy services in the following areas:
  • Working at the Oil Company site - provide reservoir engineering services during normal working hours from Sunday to Thursday.
  • Lead reservoir model build for selected reservoirs through integration of static and dynamic data to deliver the most representative models for Business Plan activities. This includes hands-on model build activity to meet various model milestones including initialization, history match, prediction and uncertainty analysis.
  • Lead Field Development Plan studies and optimization for the selected ADNOC reservoirs, to identify the most optimum field development plan from a technical and commercial standpoint. This includes optimization of well count, location, rates, completion, Artificial Lift strategy and other parameters to optimally achieve the plateau rates, plateau duration and recovery factors that are in line with ADNOC Concession Mandates.
  • Contribute and adapt to ADNOC’s ensemble based modelling approach for history match and prediction, uncertainty analysis and subsurface risk mitigation.
  • Contribute to the different ongoing Reservoir Management initiatives including:
    • Review of Reservoir Management Guidelines for Oil and Gas Reservoirs to maximize Production & Profitability while ensuring integrity of Reserves
    • Production Efficiency Improvement
    • Reduction of development cost per barrel
  • Implement ADNOC’s Best Practices in reservoir model generation, history matching and prediction.
  • Provide reservoir and petroleum engineering training & coaching to young engineers as required.
  • Provide technical support; manage and resolve reservoir engineering issues reported by various stakeholders.

Preferences: The successful candidate will have:
  • Degree in Petroleum Engineering or equivalent essential. MSc or higher desired.
  • Strong background in reservoir engineering fundamentals, reserves estimation and portfolio analysis.
  • Strong focus in optimizing field development plans, considering technical and economic aspects.
  • 15+ years of experience in delivering complex field development plans for giant oil and gas fields with 1000+ wells.
  • Proficient in Reservoir Simulation Domain (reservoir model generation, history match and prediction, uncertainty quantification), with hands on experience building large complex full field and sector models.
  • Extensive knowledge in developing carbonate oil & gas reservoirs.
  • 10+ years of experience leading independent project reviews, desired.
  • Highly experienced in developing best practices and standards for reservoir simulation model build
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills to collaborate with Oil Operator Geoscientists and Engineers.
