Our Client, an Oil & Gas Operator, urgently recruiting for a Reservoir Goemechanics Engineer based in Pau, France. With travel to Switzerland.


  • To be a focal point of the "water-CO2" stimulation experiments of sub-seismic faults carried out in the underground laboratory of Mont Terri in Switzerland.
  • Repatriate geoscience information and data necessary for 3D modelling of "water-CO2" stimulation experiments of sub-seismic faults;
  • Ensure the storage of geoscience information and data in the internal database;
  • Model and calibrate 3D "water-CO2" stimulation experiments of sub-seismic faults with flow and geomechanical software adapted to fine modelling of the fault plane / corridor by integrating all monitoring data. Which will have been recorded from both a seismic point of view and from a point
  • of view of pressure and mechanical deformation;
  • Identify and analyse gaps in knowledge and simulation tools; * Suggest ways of improvement (technologies, experiments, code, etc.), especially by distinguishing between classical methods and innovative methods.

Role Responsibilities:

  • Weekly activity reports;
  • Minutes of meetings on the subjects followed;

The individual representative will be expected to be able to do 3D models in geomechanics. An experiment on seismicity induced artificially by pumping operations would be a plus.
  • Experience in 3D numerical modelling, code, coupling, reservoir geomechanical modelling and, if possible, geological modelling of reservoirs.
  • Must have long-term experience with one or more oil companies and / or reputable consultants in the field

Software knowledge:

  • ABAQUS, GEOS, TOUGH, FLAC / 3D, ELFEN, FACE, ECLIPSE, PETREL, Ansys, programming languages, etc.
