Mubadala Petroleum Jobs: Senior Reservoir Engineer | Petroleum Engineering Technical Assistant

SKK Migas logoMubadala Petroleum JobsMubadala Petroleum is building a world-class E&P business, based on strong partnerships, a commitment to growth and an organization demonstrating its increasing capabilities.
We were established as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mubadala Development Company (Mubadala) in 2012, incorporating and building on the success of Mubadala’s existing investments in the sector.
The transformation to a subsidiary business reflected the scale, operational maturity and diversity of the portfolio we manage, which includes assets and operations at all stages of the upstream value chain located across the eastern hemisphere. We continue to grow our capabilities, combining significant operational experience with substantial technical expertise.
These qualities build on our strong commercial acumen and the partnership-driven approach that have been central to our business from the outset. We are participants in a number of major projects including the world-class Dolphin Gas Project, which is central to meeting the energy needs of the UAE.  
Elsewhere in the Middle East, we participate in large-scale enhanced oil recovery, and Southeast Asia, the company acts as operator across an extensive range of assets located in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. In the Gulf of Thailand, we have developed a strong track record of safe and efficient production operations and our exploration program has most recently yielded significant new gas resources offshore Malaysia. 
In Indonesia Mubadala Petroleum is the operator of the Ruby gas field, Sebuku Block. Our commitment is to support Indonesia economic growth and to operate to the highest safety and environmental standards. As a part of this exciting journey, we are seeking for the following positions:
