The Graduate Reservoir Engineer will become part of a multi-disciplinary asset team, tasked with maximising the value of the oil and gas field under their control. Hands-on experience will be gained across the spectrum of the business.
Reservoir Engineers apply technical skills and knowledge to solve engineering challenges. They function as integrators, connecting subsurface and topside engineering activities to optimize hydrocarbon production. They aim to maximize reservoir value, through optimization of existing reservoir management strategies and input to field development planning, at all stages of the asset’s life cycle.
Through 2-3 rotations, with the potential to work across both our UK locations (Aberdeen & Uxbridge), the Graduate Reservoir Engineer will acquire expertise in a wide range of areas including:
Drilling and Production Operations
Facilities and Subsea Engineers

Maximizing reservoir value through evaluation of well and reservoir performance
Integration of subsurface understanding, well design and facilities constraints through reservoir simulation
Evaluation of alternative reservoir development options
Input to investment decision analysis
Reservoir simulation, material balance, decline curve analysis, pressure transient analysis, SCAL and PVT data analysis
Infill drilling planning
Intervention opportunity identification
Liaising with external contractors
Enhanced oil recovery evaluations
Generating and providing production profiles for economic and commercial evaluation of projects
Working closely with operational staff, and other functions
Reserves assessment and reporting
