Specialised Skills


COUNTRY: United Arab Emirates
CITY: Abu Dhabi

Shell companies have been exploring for and producing hydrocarbons for over a century. Today, Exploration & Production (EP) employs some 17,500 people and a further 10,000 contractors worldwide and has interests in ventures in around 40 countries.

This is a technically challenging work environment characterised by a continuing need for research, the pursuit of new technology, and the adoption of new ways of working. It demands people who will thrive in a culture that encourages and rewards innovation, collaboration and the ability to learn from success as well as failure.

Abu Dhabi has some of the world's largest oil and gas fields, and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) operates in all areas of the industry. In less than three decades, the company has broadened its activities through different subsidiaries in exploration and production, support services, oil refining and gas processing, chemicals and petrochemicals, maritime transportation and refined products and distribution. Shell is a shareholder in two joint ventures - the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) and GASCO, a mid-stream gas processing company. ADCO is an EP Company and one of the largest oil producers in the southern Arabian Gulf. It undertakes exploration, drilling, production and export activities in Abu Dhabi's onshore areas and coastal fringe. GASCO - Abu Dhabi Industries Ltd has three desert gas extraction plants where gas from neighbouring ADCO plants is treated to extract Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs). These are then piped to a fractionation and treatment plant and separated into propane, butane, pentane plus (condensate) and ethane. GASCO also operates large non-associated gas and condensate processing facilities.

Shell Abu Dhabi's prime role is to maximise the value of Shell's interests in Abu Dhabi, providing both joint venture governance and support to our joint ventures. Direct responsibilities include the optimisation of existing business, the value of new business, the provision of support to ADNOC and the execution of a shareholder representation role in ADCO and GASCO. Shell Abu Dhabi also coordinates and facilitates the secondment of Shell staff to its joint ventures and in certain instances to ADNOC. We employ 24 staff with a further 31 personnel seconded to the joint ventures.

We're currently looking to recruit a Development Engineer to join our team in Abu Dhabi.

Responsibilities :
As Development Engineer, your primary role will be to assist with the technical and business governance of the Shell Group's interest in ADCO. Activities include supporting the business planning process, project economics, reserves estimation and reporting, plus review and evaluation of field development plans.

You'll be exposed to a broad range of EP activities and receive close mentoring from highly qualified and experienced technical professionals. We expect you'll remain in this position for around two years before transferring to an operational role in Abu Dhabi or elsewhere in the Middle East. This will provide you with an opportunity to develop hands-on technical skills as you work towards technical professionalism.

In detail, your accountabilities will be as follows:
. Providing technical support to the Lead Engineer in economics, business
planning and reserves work
. Supporting the formulation of Shell's evaluation and recommendations to
ADCO in review of the operator's field development plans
. Identifying areas for improvement in ADCO's operations and developing
plans for improvement
. Reviewing the project management aspects of development projects for
concept design, overall quality, schedule and budget
. Supporting the lead Shell representative in the GASCO governance.

Requirements :
With a good degree from a respected university - reservoir or petroleum engineering is preferred though geosciences would be considered - you'll have between three and five years' experience in petroleum engineering. Working knowledge of economical evaluation is essential, and you'll possess first-class project management, interpersonal and communication skills. A self-starting team player, you'll have strong personal drive, an independent work style and be culturally sensitive, preferably with Middle Eastern experience. You'll be at an advantage if you have knowledge of Arabic.
