The Role:
Oil Kazakhstan GmbH is currently looking for a Senior Drilling Engineer to join our Drilling Department in Aktau. The Senior Drilling Engineer will take up a position within the Aktau based head office for Kazakhstan Operations and will be reporting to the Head of Drilling Engineering.

Oil Kazakhstan is currently planning a full field development plan encompassing 4 appraisal wells and 198 development wells. To achieve our goals, we are looking for a team player who also has strong technical abilities.

In close cooperation with the Head of Drilling Engineering and the entire drilling team you will have a key role in ensuring that Oil Kazakhstan continuously runs a safe and efficient landbased operation.

You will be responsible for detailed well planning and technical support for the rig operations team during the execution of drilling campaigns. In cooperation with other members of the Drilling and Petroleum Engineering Department you will participate in setting goals and objectives for new wells and subsequently actively ensure that these goals are met.

Well planning in this context includes well design, performing risk analysis, cost monitoring, analyzing drilling performance and capturing lessons learned / best practices for sharing with other members of the drilling team and for inclusion into future programs. You will be ensuring that all operations are carried out with a strong focus on safety and in accordance with Kazakh regulatory requirements and Oil standards and policies. You are also expected to keep abreast of emerging new technologies and to bring them forth for incorporation into well design and operations.

In addition, you will be participating in the further development of company standards and procedures to give a firm basis for safe operations and operational excellence.

In order to achieve the above, good communication skills and close contact to service companies will be required. You will further be responsible for mentoring of Well Site Engineers and Drilling Engineers, and for ensuring consistency and quality in product.

The successful applicant must have an engineering degree or other higher technical educational background. A minimum of 8 years drilling engineering experience from the oil industry is considered a must. Experience from international oil and gas companies operating in Kazakhstan is an advantage.

The ideal candidate is a self-motivating, independent person with a sense of urgency and quality-consciousness. Further personal skills should include the ability to interact with other disciplines, motivate people and being a good team player. We strive to have fun at work so a good sense of humour is also considered a must.
