Our Basin Study projects will be scoped and to be completed in areas such as CO2 migration concentration and risk mapping, field development planning, production optimization and EOR. You are to provide effective reservoir engineering capability to the company. This will involve all aspects of reservoir engineering and in particular, the building of reservoir simulation models to establish the hydrocarbon generation model that estimate the type of hydrocarbon generated and possibly expelled, including tentative estimates for the biogenic source rocks. Also to establish optimal development of the assigned fields in the short, medium and long term. Validate the model by matching the model’s performance to the historical performance of actual field dataset.

Maintain the flow of data and knowledge between Partners and its client.


  • Minimum of 15 years relevant practical experience with international operator(s).
  • Expert knowledge of Reservoir Engineering principles and expert skills in using industry software in areas of reservoir simulation, well test analysis, well flow analysis, nodal analysis, PVT analysis and surveillance techniques
