This opportunity is for a Returner to work on a project designed to determine remaining infill well drilling opportunities in Nelson Field by carrying out an in-depth analysis of existing field data through application of analytical and/or numerical reservoir engineering approaches.

The role sits in a mature assets team with a diverse portfolio.

The overall project deliverable will be the subsurface overview on remaining opportunities in Nelson field, estimated range of incremental volumes for the identified infill opportunities and the associated risks with identified infill targets.

You will have a solid working knowledge of Reservoir engineering analytical evaluation techniques and numerical simulation modelling, with exposure towards field development planning activities and reservoir surveillance.
