About this role: Reservoir Simulation Engineer

  • Perform integrated reservoir evaluations and build reservoir numerical models using several simulation models, preferably CMG (Software Name) and Eclipse;
  • Perform probabilistic reservoir simulation with CMOST (Software Name), MEPO (Software name);
  • Understand production concepts and processes to work in collaboration with production engineers;
  • Knowledge of some basic production simulation tools like Prosper, GAP (Software Name), etc;
  • Audit existing field development plans for oil and gas fields and identify potential to improve production levels and reduce field development costs;
  • Integrate geological descriptions into numerical reservoir models, along with all production analysis and water production data;
  • Assure the technical quality of project deliverables;
  • Manage project teams and execute reservoir-engineering projects according to the schedule and within the budget following the proposed technical methodology;
  • Manage multidisciplinary technical specialists over the course of project;
  • Write technical and economic proposals, including technical methodology, schedule, and cost (budget);
  • Manage communications with the client and maintain the relationship as a trusted consultant;
  • Manage internal documentation regarding project progress and completion. Write reports and presentations;
  • Perform Pressure-Volume-Temperature PVT and phase behavior analysis;
  • Identify equilibrium regions and perform pressure analysis;
  • Complete SCAL (Special Core Analysis) analysis to identify rock type properties;
  • Complete RFT (Repeated Formation Tester) data and pressure data analysis;
  • Execute production data analysis and aquifer analysis;
  • Understand reservoir compartmentalization based on geology and other data available;
  • Complete OOIP (Original Oil in Place) and recovery factor calculations;
  • Reservoir Simulation;
  • Import the geo cellular model (fully stochastic) into a reservoir simulation model, which will include coordinates, permeability, porosity, fracture coordinates, and other static arrays;
  • Assess grid dimensions and upscaling workflows for converting from the fine-grid geological model;
  • Validate the upscaling by comparing static property distribution with the fine-grid model;
  • Run a full physics simulation to validate the upscaled models response versus the fine-grained model;
  • Input PVT and SCAL (Special Core Analysis) tables into the model;
  • Initialize the model and compare the OOIP (Original Oil in Place) numbers with the static model;
  • History Matching;
  • Field Development Planning.


  • BS degree in engineering, geology, geophysics or physics. M.S. or Ph.D. is desirable. But not required;
  • Consultant + 15 Years Experience;
  • Minimum of 15 years of intensive experience in the area of reservoir simulation. A training history of appropriate specialized courses and seminars is expected. Technical publications are valued but in-depth practical experience is paramount;
  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively in multi-disciplinary teams and to communicate ideas clearly with specialists in reservoir characterization and geologic modeling, petro-physical evaluation, core analysis, reservoir management, and production engineering;
  • Extensive working knowledge of standard vendor applications for pre and post processing of simulation data and Assisted History Matching software and workflow.
