ConocoPhillips is the world’s largest independent upstream energy company, based on proved reserves and production of liquids and natural gas. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, the company had operations in almost 30 countries and approximately 16,700 employees as of May 1, 2012, with 2011 average production of 1.62 million BOE per day and proved reserves of 8.4 billion BOE as of Dec. 31, 2011.
Responsibilities may include:
Serves as a Reservoir Engineer in the Subsurface Technology Group working in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Techniques. Performs laboratory studies with emphasis in chemical EOR and gas-foam technologies. Runs phase behavior and chemical stability tests at low and high temperature and pressure to identify formulations of surfactants that work well with the oil and water chemistry of our oil fields and allow recovery of oil residual. Conducts core floods at reservoir conditions (high temperature and high pressure(HTHP)), to verify the performance of potential surfactant systems in reservoir rocks with reservoir fluids. Carries out applied research in a range of areas using advanced instrumentation to study the dynamics of oil and gas production in the subsurface in order to develop new technologies and address issues for production operations. Addresses numerous issues in the production of challenged and non-conventional energy resources and the handling of materials where the systems and processes studied are often outside traditional areas of oil and gas production. Carries out experimental work in a laboratory environment; designing, building and operating the equipment that is needed and interpreting and documenting the results. Directs the work of technicians in the laboratory program. Stays current with technologies in work areas. Serves as company expert in the application of those. Responsible for identifying and contacting surfactant manufacturing companies to obtain samples of proven surfactant and novel products with potential in EOR tests.
Master's degree in Chemical or Petroleum Engineering and one year of experience in chemical enhanced oil recovery lab research including core flooding and IFT phase behavior studies; advanced technical lab work in subsurface studies including reservoir conditions of high temperature and pressure; CT scanning and/or other imaging technologies for use in subsurface lab work; advanced analytical laboratory technologies including HPLC, GC, and rheological tools; converting lab results to field planning and activities; and performing numerical analysis and data analysis.
