The placement

In addition to limitation in terms of water injection, scavenger injection, sulphur production, breaks in the production line and production water disposal. The Schoonebeek production team has daily calls to optimize the production of all these wells, and you will be part of this team!

You will find yourself working in a small team of business and IT folks using Design Thinking and Agile methodology. Expect lots of support and encouragement while you're here. We value career growth, therefore, we can provide you internal trainings where needed.

  • Optimize production with non-linear constraints for Schoonebeek oil field.
  • Use big data from production and discrete data to create models that predict (H2S, Water, etc).
  • Reduce meeting time to half using advanced knowledge technologies.

Furthermore, in this project, you will contribute towards a cleaner energy solution. The optimization production of Schoonebeek’s oil wells will reduce waste and environmental impact of the operation. The knowledge obtained can be used by other Shell operations to further optimize their production patterns.
