Highly adaptive to different cultures and customs.

A Socially intelligent person who exhibits a low maintenance personality.

Position Responsibilites:
The Analyst of Reservoir Engineering will need demonstrate a high-level of competency in the following activities:

Determine causes of fluid breakthrough in wells. Evaluate drawdowns, and thus 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 Requirements:
This position requires rotational travel amounting of up to 50% time out-of-country.
