This covers everything from evaluating prospects to define potential productivity and profitability, to developing which areas to optimize hydrocarbon production in.


As a Reservoir Engineer, you will focus on integrating geoscience, facilities and well engineering data to understand hydrocarbon reservoir performance, plan field developments and optimize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons. Depending on your BP location and role, you will gain broad capability, primarily through job experiences in:
