The Role:
• Conduct multiple equipment failure investigations at a time according to the defined Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) process.
• Witness and represent Shell concerns/interests during incoming testing, disassembly and inspection activities following equipment failures. This may include coordinating participation and defining responsibilities for qualified third party representatives to witness incoming testing, disassembly and inspection activities following equipment failures when RCFA/TAT members cannot be present.
• Deliver timely preliminary failure analysis reports to the appropriate well delivery personnel. These reports provide the initial findings, interim recommendations and the forward plan.
• Work closely with RCFA Team members, Subject Matter Experts and the vendor’s failure response focal points during RCFA’s to develop the terms of reference, focus investigation tasks, evaluate data and results, and develop conclusions, corrective actions and recommendations.

• Prepare RCFA reports in a timely manner via the prescribed format. Upload approved reports into Shell’s reports database and link the reports to the RCFA/TAT’s website.
• Inform RCFA/TAT Leader of key issues and improvements identified through RCFA.
• Prepare and deliver RCFA highlights presentations for engineering network meetings.
• Prepare notices/cautions and key investigation updates for the quarterly RCFA Awareness Bulletins, which are directed at well delivery teams to mitigate risk of repeat failures.
• Participate in meetings with well delivery personnel to help summarize RCFA findings, corrective actions and recommendations. Such meetings may include well planning sessions, after action reviews and drilling engineering network meetings.
