The Role:
Drilling Engineer position in the North America Production Operations (NAPO) Onshore division of the Worldwide Drilling & Completions organization. The successful candidate will begin with extensive exposure to a variety of domestic rig operations. Mentoring on operational techniques, decision making, contractor relationships, and safety expectations will be at an accelerated pace. Depending on prior experience, the employee will initially work a rotational schedule and will be challenged to take over rig supervision responsibilities as soon as he/she is ready for the challenge. The duration of the rig supervisory assignment will depend on the individual’s prior experience and ability to demonstrate proficiency in this role.

Experienced engineers manage and supervise their own exploration and development well projects through close coordination with completion and reservoir engineers, geoscientists, and field personnel. After gaining experience in domestic US operations, the opportunity to be involved with International projects may be available.
