Capable of planning and implementation of well interventions and workovers, for the purpose of stimulation/fracturing and evaluation of production
Extensive knowledge on AL, especially ESP and PCP (from design to DIFA analysis), knowledge on ESP KPI definition (MTBF/RL) and implementation. Knowledge of design software.
Expertise in Nodal Analysis softwares
Experience on well modelling and network preparation, validation and update (PROSPER/GAPS/PIPESIM/OFM).
Should have very good knowledge of tools/techniques used in identifying well integrity and corrosion issues.
Should be familiar with different types of HP-HT well completions and capable of recommending completion material suitable to address H2S/C02/highly saline for-mation water.
Carryout diagnostic analysis of wells to determine reasons for low productivity of wells.
Generate vertical flow profile tables for the dynamic modeling study.
Review existing cased/open hole well completions and evaluate their benefits and drawbacks.
Recommend well completion designs for new wells and work over sidetracks (cased/ open hole).
Identify potential candidate from existing wells, recommend and design suitable stimulation plan (acid/fracturing) with significant oil gain.
Carryout risk assessments related to stimulation job procedures in collaboration with FD, Well Surveillance and other service providers.
Supervise the stimulation job implementation, if required.
Carry out post job evaluation and present the results to team/management.
Analyse all types of cement evaluation logs for wells and prepare interpretation report.
