As a petroleum-reservoir engineer (PE/RE), you will be part of the Subsurface organisation that sits under the Production & Operations business group. Our vision is to become an industry-leading hydrocarbons business and the engine room of our integrated energy company; we will do this by always putting safety first, reducing carbon emissions, improving efficiency, integrating across the value chain, and flexibly deploying talent to the solve the biggest issues. At the heart of Subsurface lies our purpose to be a digitally enabled and agile team that can apply and nurture its subsurface skills to find, develop and manage a portfolio of high-value, carbon-efficient resources.
From exploration to production, our petroleum and reservoir engineers play a crucial role in bp’s field operation success. Petroleum Engineers are a key link between design, planning and operations of wells, facilities, reservoir, and storage container development. You’ll be adding value through performance optimization through system modelling and developing well intervention requirements to maintain or improve the production of hydrocarbons and CO2 storage throughout the life of the field. Depending on your bp location and role, you will gain broad capability, primarily through job experiences, in:
- Reservoir and Well Performance: for example, participation in the reservoir and well reviews; involvement in production forecasting or optimising water, gas and CO2 injection
- System Optimization: for example in well production and facilities optimisation, sand management, artificial lift or geothermal production
- Well Management: for example in well performance tracking or well operations, real-time surveillance and developing machine learning and data analytics solutions
As a Reservoir Engineer, you’ll focus on integrating geoscience, rock, fluid, pressure, facilities and well engineering data to understand hydrocarbon reservoir and/or storage container performance, plan new field developments and/or optimize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons and/or storage solutions. Depending on your BP location and role, you will gain broad capability, primarily through job experiences in:
About the Programme
- Well and/or area Performance: for example, participation in the reservoir and well reviews; involvement in reservoir performance analysis, well planning, or flood management
- Reservoir and/or storage management: for example, in setting depletion strategy, generating field development options, or reserves estimation
- Reservoir and/or storage simulation: for example, in history matching or model building, developing data analytics solutions
