Project Description

One of the world's largest providers of products and services to the energy industry has a need to develop and support enterprise information system in Oil & Gas domain specifically related to reservoir management.
We're creating new team which will be closely working with the client.
Technological stack is expected to evolve to the modern Cloud technologies.


    This position is charged with improving the reservoir simulator's geo-mechanical modeling. At this time, the simulator uses either compaction tables or an explicitly coupled geo-mechanical simulation (third party) to simulate the impact of geo-mechanical rock distortions brought on by stress (pressure) changes during reservoir production or injection. The project will begin with a complete analysis of our options going forward. At one extreme this could include recommendation and the building of a full finite element geo-mechanical simulator. At the more simple end of the spectrum identification of a better explicitly coupled 3rd party solution. The candidate will develop models where the interaction between fluid and rock deformation is studied. The development will include mathematical models, numerical discretization of multi-phase fluid mass and rock deformation equations, and numerically efficient Fortran code implementation in the existing simulator.


Must have

    Coding experience. A Ph.D. in Engineering (or exceptionally qualified M.S. candidate) or degrees in math or other sciences with appropriate background. Strong communication skills in English are required.

Nice to have

    Coding experience with Fortran 90
    Previous experience with a finite element geo-mechanics simulator and coupled geo-mechanical modeling for fractured formations is a plus.
    A Ph.D. in Engineering (or exceptionally qualified M.S. candidate) with background in petroleum reservoir highly desire.
    Preferred to have parallel MPI experience.
