The Role:

The successful candidate will have a minimum of five years of completions or production engineering experience, preferably in onshore ‘tight’ or ‘unconventional’ plays. At least four years of hydraulic fracturing design, evaluation, and field supervision required. This position will be responsible for designing completions, preparing procedures, cost estimates, and other documentation, and working with field supervisors during implementation. All members of the completion team are also responsible for leading efforts in Health, Environment, and Safety (HES). This will consist of meeting with contractors, both on- and off-site, considering HES issues in completion design, participating in incident investigations, generating corrective actions, and providing HES leadership while on location. Continuous improvement, both operationally and in HES issues, will require much interaction with Asset Team members, company-wide Completion Engineers, completion contractors and field personnel.

• Self motivated and able to work undirected alone as well as within a multifunctional team.
• Maintain a positive attitude.
• Monitor performance against schedule, plan, and cost and make solid recommendations for achieving completion goals.
• Follow total well construction activities and understand implication of those activities on completion activities.
• Provide safety leadership throughout completion operations. Participate in or lead incident investigations, vendor visits, or safety meetings as required.
