Senior. Reservoir Engineer

Based in

Cairo, Egypt

Employment type


Job Summary

This position is to provide engineering support to company operations in the areas of Field Development Plans, Reserves Estimates, Annual Production Budget, Reservoir Characterization & Reservoir Studies. The reservoir engineer should ensure that his work is fully integrated with other petroleum engineering & geology functions and aligned with company`s goals and objectives.

Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Annual Budgeting and Reserves Booking

  • Provide the production forecast for the annual budget planning
  • Reserves/ Resources estimation & reporting.
  • Advise on drilling and completion strategies, and future well interventions during annual budget planning.
  • Prepare of monthly/annual field performance review with updates on production, rig and rigless activities, surveillance and well integrity.
  • Preparing the required documentations and full justifications for technical and shareholder approvals to implement planned activities.
  • Adhere to all company policies and act as a role model in the adherence to policies.
  • Undertake special projects and fulfil other duties as may reasonably be required by the company in line with the incumbent’s skills, knowledge, abilities and personal development opportunities
  • Act in a professional manner at all times as is consistent with the aims and values of the company
  • Provide out of hours support as appropriate

Reservoir Management

  • Monitor & Analyse regularly static & flowing reservoir pressure and temperature.
  • Analysis of well production data to validate contribution per individual reservoir unit and properly allocate them in the database
  • Update production and pressure database.
  • Issue recommendations to acquire data useful to optimize production, pressure/production monitoring, update well and reservoir models.
  • Issue surveillance plan with candidate interventions or workovers for well / field production optimization.
  • Assess reservoir driving mechanism from production/pressure performance
  • Gather and validate reservoir data, including production, pressures, in place volumes, nodal analysis, future wells data, surface facilities constrain, etc in order to prepare /update the short-term production forecast

Reservoir Characterization:

  • Conduct, design & analyse Pressure Transient Tests
  • Determine fluid properties using B.H. and surface sample analysis and best-fit PVT correlations
  • Find porosity and horizontal/vertical permeability distribution using logs, cores & well tests.
  • Monitor & Analyse regularly static & flowing reservoir pressure and temperature
  • Determine the reservoir compartmentalization
  • Assess & support the subsurface mapping
  • Estimate reservoir OOIP & Reserves from performance data (pressure/production/material balance)
  • Issue recommendations to acquire data useful to optimize production, pressure/production monitoring, update well and reservoir models.

Reservoir Studies:

  • Reservoir Simulation/Conventional Studies on producing reservoirs and prospects:
  • Identify infill drilling,
  • Assess by-passed hydrocarbons.
  • Evaluate and recommend re-completions
  • Assess & evaluate coning potential and recommend strategy to restrain conning
  • Evaluate and recommend secondary recovery methods and/or pressure maintenance programs
  • Evaluate prospects by estimating potential volumes in place & reserves and by identifying & sensitizing on the key risks.
  • Support on the candidate selection, timing and planning of wells to be included in drilling schedule

Please note this role does not offer relocation support.

Applicants should send CV and Cover Letter to before the closing date of 30 November 2023
