Job Summary:

BP Technical Solutions India (TSI) center in Pune, aims to build on bp's existing engineering and technical strengths to deliver high quality services to its hydrocarbons and new energy businesses worldwide. TSI brings together diverse engineering capability to provide technical services across a range of areas including engineering, maintenance, optimization, data processes, projects and subsurface, to deliver safe, affordable, and lower emission energy, while continuously innovating how we work. Global Subsurface Solutions (GSS) delivers high-quality, high impact, subsurface technical products to address prioritised business challenges across bp's oil, gas, and low carbon businesses.

As a Reservoir engineer you will be responsible for utilising broad Reservoir engineering experience to inform reserves estimation, resources progression and the appropriate Reservoir management activities and/or Carbon storage plans are implemented.

You will have the opportunity to work across BP global portfolio on projects as diverse as early field development offshore West Africa, large-scale waterflood developments in the Caspian Sea and Middle East and global screening and development of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) fields. You will be responsible for supporting region decisions on reserves estimation, Reservoir management, and production forecasting.

Job Description:

What you will deliver

Work closely with the regions across the globe, utilising broad classical Reservoir engineering methods to properly analyse and integrate wells and Reservoir data into the team's current understanding.

  • Conduct classical Reservoir engineering analyses, integrating rate and pressure transient analysis, material balance, decline curve and volumetric analyses into Reservoir evaluation and reserves estimation.
  • Provide sound Reservoir Engineering technical analysis, judgement, and guidance to support identification, evaluation, and progression of value-generating resources.
  • Provide technical support and guidance in delivery of projects and progression of resources.
  • Apply Reservoir engineering concepts to understand and optimize the production and recovery, Including Rock and fluid properties, relative permeability, and depletion mechanisms.
  • Promote hydrocarbon resources progression by assessing surveillance and analogue data, development activities and materiality, and working across multi-disciplines to provide input and justification for reserves/resources estimation and reporting, following company's guidelines.
  • Ensure subsurface products align to bp's technical expectations for reserves estimation.
  • Collaborate with engineers in global teams to analyze field performance and advise on improving recovery.
