Shell’s Projects & Technology
Shell’s Projects & Technology business is seeking to strengthen its capability worldwide in order to maintain its leading industry position. The upstream development organization works to deliver top quartile field developments in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
Upstream development is a diverse group of some 350 surface and subsurface professionals located in Rijswijk, Aberdeen and Bangalore. Projects can be short screening studies through to major integrated surface and subsurface studies, often involving difficult hydrocarbons, unconventional resources and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques.
We combine leading edge technology with extensive operating experience leading to innovative, yet practical solutions, which efficiently maximise oil and gas recovery from the reservoir through to the final sales point.
We are looking to strengthen our regional teams in Rijswijk and Aberdeen.
- Execute upstream development activities as part of integrated field studies, ensuring that risks/uncertainties are mitigated and properly reflected in models/workflows that address the development decisions to be made.
- Contribute to the overall technical and economical evaluations of exploration and production opportunities.
- Visibly demonstrate personal and company HSE commitment and drive towards technical excellence. Manage relationships with key stakeholders to achieve mutual benefits.
- Motivate, coach and develop all members of your team to deliver superior performance; while appreciating the strength of diversity and strong team ethics.
Occasional business visits may be required when working directly with Operating Units and Joint Ventures worldwide, however most study work is conducted at the base location.
We are seeking to recruit technical professionals with a strong proven track record of performance in one of the following areas of specialization:
- Production Technology
- Production Chemistry
- Reservoir Engineering
- Process Engineering
You should have technical academic qualifications in relevant disciplines e.g. Engineering, Physics, Geosciences, Mathematics or equivalent.
Have the attitude to develop and be effective across a wide skill spectrum including technical, commercial and interpersonal skills; as you will be operating in geographically and culturally different environments with diverse Operating Units.
Operational experience from the oil and gas industry is required with special consideration given to candidates with experience in EOR techniques, unconventional resources, new business development and acquisition & development screening.
Proven ability to manage challenging deadlines and adapt to changing workloads with a high degree of initiative and independence to deliver results through others.
Be able to contribute and directly influence customer bottom line results and translate their business needs into innovative and sustainable value solutions.
Belief in and respect for people and HSSE.
