Innovative Engineering is a well and reservoir engineering consultancy based in Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. Established in 1994 the company is involved in supporting our partners in the areas of well construction (drilling and completion), reservoir management, production optimisation and rock testing. We are actively seeking a geomechanical engineer to work as part of the team. The work involves capturing and calibrating data from logs, reports, production and drilling test in order to develop mechanical models for stresses, thermal, pore pressure, structural geology and rock mechanical rock properties. Good knowledge and application of such models to identify, describe and resolve reservoir mechanical behaviour and well performance issues related to the drilling, completion and production operations.

A graduate in engineering (mining, geology, geosciences, mechanical or petroleum) preferable with a Masters degree, the candidate should have a minimum of 4 years of proven experience in the discipline and with an operator or service company. Based in Edinburgh, the position requires excellent communication skills, high level computational sklls, ability to work independently, spoken and written fluency in English and capable of producing quality reports.
