We are actively seeking those with the drive and energy to join the most active drilling company in the U.S. and a desire to be part of a growing enterprise and who value the opportunity to engineer conventional and non-conventional onshore U.S. gas focused assets.
Candidates should be proficient in all areas of Reservoir Engineering including well test analysis, material balance, secondary recovery methods, performance analysis, fluid properties, volumetric recovery methods and project economics.
Exploration project evaluations include probabilistic analyses and providing monitoring and surveillance programs for reservoir performance, and coordinate these programs to determine if the development plan is conforming to management strategy.
- Coordinating project development and implementation with geoscience, drilling, production, and land professionals.
- Integrating well performance/nodal analysis, pressure transient analysis, material balance, volumetric and decline curve analyses in the evaluation are essential.
- Performing field and screening studies of existing assets and potential acquisitions, including associated economic analyses.
- Acquiring and analyzing the necessary test data used to define accurate reservoir characterization.
- Five plus years of industry experience with a minimum of 3 years reservoir engineering experience.
- Expertise in economic evaluation and reserve assessment for exploration programs, development drilling programs, workovers and production optimization opportunities.
- Knowledge and practical application of volumetric calculations, decline curve reserve determinations, appropriate analogue techniques and material balance assessments.
- Skills associated with reservoir simulation techniques considered a plus.
- Chesapeake utilizes Aries for reserve reporting and economic calculations. Previous Aries experience is not required but is considered a benefit to any potential candidate.
- All business decisions are made in a team environment. Successful candidates should have a broad understanding of the E&P business and be willing and able to communicate effectively with their peers in Geology, Operations and Drilling.
- Mentoring of less experienced and inexperienced individuals is required. Candidates should be patient but also willing to leverage the maximum work volume by delegating lesser tasks to associate engineers and engineering technicians.
- Although Chesapeake is interested in all previous experience, we are especially interested in unconventional experience associated with tight gas reservoirs, CBM development and shale gas resource work.
- A minimum of a Bachelors Degree in Petroleum, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering
