Reservoir Engineer, Surveillance – Denver, CO

CSI Recruiting is working with an E&P company located in Denver on their need for a 5 year Reservoir Engineer focused on Surveillance.  This is a growth role – not a back-fill, but the result of increased activity at the company. This is a fast-paced entrepreneurial style environment so the client would prefer a candidate who has worked in a similar style company.

As the Reservoir Engineer for surveillance you will be part of a multi-disciplinary, integrated team of geoscientists and engineers charged with carrying out technical and commercial evaluation to maximize value from producing oil and gas fields.  You will be expected to take producing fields at various stages of the development life cycle and maximize value through surveillance and enhanced recovery.  It is also expected that you will work closely with field personnel to add engineering insight to improve operations while controlling costs.

The position requires an ability to re-evaluate existing fields to establish optimal economic solutions. This will involve evaluation of uphole recompletions, re-stimulations, infill drilling, or adjustments in floods through surveillance and conformance work. The successful candidate will need to be a creative thinker that is willing to re-look at existing problems to maximize value. Our client is looking for a dynamic individual that is able to balance needs for full field development along with taking care of daily production issues.

The position offers the opportunity to work closely with our technical and management team in a very flat organization that includes regular exposure to executives. You should be capable of presenting and openly discussing identified opportunities with an executive-level audience.
