SENIOR PRODUCTION ENGINEER The Role Reporting to the Petroleum Engineering Team Lead, you will be responsible for identifying and maturing intervention opportunities; supporting ongoing infill drilling by defining the completion requirements; and providing input to production and injection optimisation. These are the core elements of Asset strategy, which aims to extend the production life into the late 2020’s. To deliver the core responsibilities of the role you will be required to lead extensive stakeholder management engagements, as the role interfaces with a variety of internal and external stakeholders. These include the Subsurface Team; the Joint venture partners; the Developments Team; Asset Planning; Well Engineering; and Technical Excellence & Assurance. You will play a key role in delivering best-in-class results through: Primary: Technical / Functional - Production Value Creation Support infill well programs – provision of all production technology input (upper completion design, artificial lift design and sand face design Support/Drive the well productivity management and improvement initiatives Platform/ Subsea interventions programming / design Petroleum engineering support to subsurface / development team Ad-hoc support for Business Development Drive preparation of technical and commercial justification for well interventions & workovers Prepare input for partners meetings and annual production reports (OGA etc) Overseeing third party studies Occasional offshore visits in support of project execution Provide supervision, support, coaching and guidance to other engineers as and when required Secondary: Technical / Functional - Production Value Protection Safeguard and management of the production / injection well operating envelope and performance interfaces Identifying and realising well optimisation opportunities in conjunction with Reservoir Engineers and D&C Engineers Overseeing flow assurance in the producing/injecting wells and infrastructure Driving the sand management strategies Implementing and overseeing the digital oil field (Petroleum Expert’s IPM / IFM / IVM); Production System Optimisation and Well Flow Assurance processes Essential Experience You will be qualified to MSc or equivalent degree in either Petroleum Engineering / Reservoir Engineering with robust and relevant experience within the Oil and Gas industry. Furthermore, you will have a proven track record of delivery, ideally from an oil and gas operator background.
