The purpose of the job is to:• Deliver well & completions designs for all wells, Production optimization and multi-discipline projects in accordance with World Class Hydrocarbon Maturation and Well Delivery and Intervention Processes, and the deliverables set by Seplat’s requirements to optimize Oil & Gas recovery.• Significantly contribute to / lead the delivery of quality reservoir development studies (RDS), field development plan (FDP), the identification of production improvement opportunities and production optimization studies in conjunction with reservoir engineers, petrophysicists and production geologists.• Coach and mentor younger PTs.• The overall purpose is to create value in Seplat’s resource base and skills development.
Principal Accountabilities: (Describe the important 8 - 12 accountabilities/responsibilities of the job, i.e., what needs to be achieved and why. Start with the most important and number each one separately)1.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.2.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.3.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.4.Ensure flow assurance for the life cycle of the completed wells. Incorporate mitigation strategies into production optimisation plans.5.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.6.Generate an activity proposal for any of the above operations, which contains the economic justification, functional design and programme outline.7.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 performance.8.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 the operation. Monitor operations and evaluate results.
