The Role:
Reports to Production Optimisation Leader

The well performance engineer must identify, evaluate, recommend and implement opportunities to maximise value in terms of production, well and reservoir performance over the short to medium term.

* Conduct daily production optimisation efforts for Quad 9 and Quad 15/30 Fields' production systems to reach their maximum production limit; monitor and evaluate offshore well production and surface process performance, report changing production parameters, in a systematic manner.
* Support offshore production operations e.g. daily communication with CRO, weekly production performance meeting, monthly issuance of field Production Optimisation Guideline (POG), etc.
* Update and maintain well models in PROSPER to support all production optimization efforts; maintain and utilize the field system network model in GAP of its capacities and potentials. Using this calibrated model, identify production bottlenecks (and possible future bottlenecks) and recommend economic solutions to remove or mitigate these bottlenecks.
* Manage sand production from the well e.g. monitor daily the acoustic sand detection system, identify sand event with changing production condition, provide input to the monthly ENS Sand Management Meeting, understand sand sampling results, optimise the well to produce at its production envelope to mitigate sand production.
* Manage the well testing program for all producing wells from scheduling, update procedure (if required), and verify well test data and proper documentation of well test data in the production database.
* Coordinate evaluations of production loss, ensure proper categorisation and through a validation during the weekly production performance meeting, inform the Hydrocarbon Allocation team of these losses. Continuously develop plans to prevent losses with regards to well performance.
* Ensure well integrity testing is conducted on time with the right procedure; if required interface with the well integrity team in the event wells fail the testing requirements and contribute to the follow up tasks, if any.
* Optimise gas lift wells and the lift gas system e.g. gas lift modelling, lift gas distribution modelling, and recommend GLV changes, if required.
* Prepare, attend and contribute in the weekly production performance meeting and monthly production performance group meeting. Similarly, to other planned well reviews meeting.
* Provide the following support, but not limited to, support to the commercial team in the preparation of information to the co-venture as required in the Flyndre Operating Agreements, support production forecasting for weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual forecast requirements, support preparation of requests to OGA for developing yearly production and flaring requirements, support the Hydrocarbon Accounting team on production reporting and allocation, support Geoscience teams in well, reservoir and facility reviews.
