Reservoir engineers are mainly employed by operators or consultancy firms. They work closely with other technical departments to find and extract oil and gas from existing fields, as well as searching for potential new targets. They convert geological data into models to show how oil, gas and water are distributed within a reservoir, and predict the flow of fluid through rocks by analysing production history and creating simulation models.
As a reservoir engineer, your range of duties might involve:
You will need a degree in an engineering related discipline.
A Masters in petroleum or reservoir engineering, or a related discipline.
£25,000 - £30,000, rising to £40,000 - £75,000 once experienced.
You could progress to be a senior reservoir engineer, a team Leader, a technical specialist or a manager.
