Lead Well performance modelling, sand
prediction, sand control selection and upper completion design, perforating and
smart well design for land and swamp operations. Work in an integrated study
team (as a member or a study team lead) to mature opportunities. Make PT input
into field development plan. The goal is to optimally and profitably extract
hydrocarbon from the Assets.

Ensure compliance with well, reservoir and
facility management, well integrity, control guidelines and taking appropriate
actions in assigned field/s. This is to safeguard the assets and assure
reputation of the company.

Identification of short term oil opportunities
for ranking in the business planning processes and the maturation of short term
oil opportunities within the asset team.

Ensure flow assurance for the life cycle of the
completed wells. Incorporate mitigation strategies into production optimisation

Identify candidate wells, which have
near‐wellbore or wellbore damage for stimulations (e.g. acid or hydraulic
stimulations) and design suitable treatment. Monitor the stimulations
operations and evaluate the results.

Identify water or gas shut‐off candidates wells
and design treatments (mechanical and chemical treatments). Monitor operations
and evaluate results.

Identify wells that require additional and/or
re‐perforations, due to high mechanical skin and design operations (e.g. gun
selection, drawdown). Monitor operations and evaluate results.

Generate an activity proposal for any of the
above operations, which contains the economic justification functional design
and programme outline.

Generate well/system model (incl. the artificial
lift) to compare actual performance with predicted.

Identify wells that are not optimized and
initiate actions/well interventions to change the operating conditions.
Identify wells that are not performing and review options to improve inflow

Generate a well/reservoir surveillance plan, in
conjunction with other disciplines, obtain key data and incorporate it into
asset surveillance plan.

Identify candidates for BHPs, production logging
related cased hole logs and design theoperation. Monitor operations and
evaluate results.
