Junior Reservoir Engineer
Technical Asset Operations (TAO) which sits in Shell’s Projects and Technology department, provides high-quality and cost-competitive technical resources who are not physically present at a site yet are an integral part of asset teams delivering value. The TAO teams are located across 4 locations: Krakow, Chennai, Manila & Kuala Lumpur.
Reservoir Engineer - Junior Data Analyst is a role for Early Careers. In this role the candidate would be expected to be connected with various subsurface and reservoir engineering colleagues in assets and streamline and document the data management process. The scope of the work covers the Well, Reservoir, and Facility Management (WRFM) community support in extracting the required data for any WRFM review processes, as well as helping the assets in capturing fluid, pressure, and reservoir properties, and managing key subsurface uncertainties. The candidate is expected to have basic knowledge of reservoir performance analysis and maturation of hydrocarbon volumes.
Work closely with Assets / Reservoir Engineer in maintaining and providing necessary access/data for various reservoir studies/reviews.
Understand and provide support on necessary reports & workflows during the annual reporting cycles (internal and external).
Support Reserves Reporting, Subsurface Benchmarking, and Portfolio Analysis.
Integrate subsurface data types such as production, pressures, etc. to present meaningful insights using industry-standard data visualization tools. Perform quality checks and connect with relevant stakeholders for verification/rectification.
Support Assets with Reserves estimation and classification, Decline Curve Analysis (DCA) based Production Forecasting, Well Test interpretation, and MBAL Modelling.
Participate in the reservoir engineering network and share key achievements and challenges.
Be a team player and assist other colleagues in reservoir engineering processes/workflows as required.
University Degree in Geoscience, Reservoir Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, or relevant.
Experience: Freshers/1-2 years of relevant experience in any one of the areas: Field Development Planning, Reservoir Studies, Production Forecasting, Subsurface Benchmarking, Annual Reserves Reporting, etc.
Data Management skills in identifying data sources, analyzing data quality, and providing reliable data would be an asset.
Basic understanding of various data types such as production, injection, fluid, pressure, reservoir properties, etc.
Understanding of end-to-end Upstream Asset Development.
Skills in Data analysis (using Python), data integration (using VBA, Power Query), and visualization (using Spotfire, PowerBI) are added advantages.
Experience in applying Continuous Improvement methods for process improvements is a good addition.
