What role you will play in our team


We are looking for experienced engineers with minimum of 3 years in the oil & gas industry who will conduct reservoir simulation studies to support ExxonMobil’s global portfolio of Deepwater, Conventional, Heavy Oil, Unconventional, and Carbon Storage assets. Their work will support a variety of business decisions including but not limited to production forecasting, opportunity evaluation, reservoir management, reservoir surveillance, reserve estimation and carbon storage.

What you will do


  • You will work closely with our global business units and central capability groups to integrate geologic, reservoir and production data into reservoir simulation models, conduct or coordinate reservoir studies to robustly assess dynamic performance of our conventional, heavy oil, unconventional and carbon storage reservoirs.
  • Build or update high fidelity reservoir simulation models, history-match them using available field data, and forecast dynamic predictions using calibrated models.
  • Perform data QA/QC and correct anomalies, analyze trends to recognize deviations and inconsistencies. 
  • Correct fit for reservoir simulation analysis to accurately predict dynamic performance and provide appropriate technical inputs to support business decisions like workovers, infill drilling, facility capacity & operational thresholds, field development decisions and reserves estimation. 
  • Quantify subsurface uncertainties using multi scenario modelling methods.
  • Collaborate with geologists, wells/completion engineers, data scientists, and petro-physicists, as needed, to ensure that the range of uncertainty in dynamic performance predictions are presented to management.
  • Prepare technical reports to share results and analyses using simulation studies with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Support evaluation and enhancement of reservoir simulation workflows, tools and technologies.
