Description of 5 Must Haves to qualify as a Senior Advisor of Reservoir Managemen:
B.Sc. (PhD or Masters preferred) with >3.5 GPA from a notable Oil & Gas Institution (e.g., Stanford, UT, Texas A&M, Colorado School of Mines)
At least a minimum of 5 consecutive years of IOC (supermajor experience: ExxonMobil, Chevron, or Shell or BP)
A total of at least 20+ years of upstream industry experience.
5 Additional qualities QRI seeks:
Innovative & Independent minded.
Applications oriented scientist over an academic orientation.
Highly adaptive to different cultures and customs.
Low maintenance personality.
Ideally QRI is seeking top Senior Reservoir engineers with 20+ years of experience in the activities listed here:
Determine causes of fluid breakthrough in wells. Evaluate drawdowns, and thus rates, to control the near wellbore effects of coning or channeling.
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
