Airswift is seeking a Senior Reservoir Engineer to join one of our major energy oil & gas clients St. John’s, NL. This is an initial 1-year contract with a huge possibility to be converted into an employee position.
The client seeks a talented Senior Reservoir Engineer to join their team. The ideal candidate will provide reservoir engineering expertise to the Subsurface Engineering team responsible for the development and surveillance of the White Rose and Terra Nova fields.
The professional will assist in planning and executing West White Rose development wells, will also support reservoir surveillance, history matching, and optimization of existing Subsea developments in the company’s project.

Key Responsibilities
Well Design & Execution
• Provide Reservoir Engineering analysis and documentation to the Well Design process in support of the project development plan
• Integrate with a multidisciplinary design team to create optimal well-drilling trajectories and completions
• Monitor wells during well construction and assess reservoir learnings to adapt development strategy
• Incorporate Well Designs and Reservoir Data into Reservoir Simulation Forecasts
• Evaluate reservoir impact and economics of brownfield projects, new wells, and interventions

Field Reservoir Management
• Provide reservoir management and surveillance of development wells within an integrated subsurface team
• Conduct classical reservoir engineering analysis on producing wells (decline analysis, pressure transient analysis, PVT, interference testing, material balance)
• History Match field data in Reservoir simulation to validate subsurface uncertainties, and provide well forecasts
• Make recommendations on operational strategies to improve reservoir recovery
• Identify interventions and workovers to provide additional reservoir data or improve recovery

Data Management & Analytics
• Contribute to reservoir engineering databases to support field planning and operational learning
• Identify & test software or workflows to improve reservoir decision quality, data storage and analysis

Field Development Planning
• Organize and manage ad hoc reservoir studies (i.e., special core analysis, fluid analysis, souring)
• Prepare and update regulatory applications and interface with the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB)
• Review and prepare reserve estimates and prepare economic justification of reservoir opportunities

• Participating in the Atlantic Region Emergency Response Plan, as assigned
• Keep informed of technical advancements in the field of reservoir engineering

  • BSc in Engineering, MSc in considered an asset.
  • Professional Engineer or eligibility for status with PEG-NL is required.
