The Company:
Our client, a prestigious oil and gas operator with a global footprint is looking for Senior Well Engineers with design and operations experience for various locations worldwide. Locations are as follows: Middle East & North Africa:- Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq (local staff only), Syria.
Russia & Caspian:- Sakhalin, Kazakhstan
Europe:- The Netherlands
Americas:- USA (local staff only)
West Africa:- Gabon, Nigeria

The Role:
This is a key leadership role ensuring the provision of high quality well engineering input into well projects in support of field development and asset reference plans, and subsequently managing the safe and efficient execution of resulting well programs by the rig teams under his/her supervision.

Both directly, and by supervising assigned well engineers, your role will be to:
- develop well engineering solutions for well projects using ‘limit’ methodologies and meeting review tollgates as required.
- ensure the recognition and appropriate mitigation of technical, commercial and operational risks associated with the delivery of well projects.
- have single point Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) responsibility for well operations. This means establishing and maintaining exemplary HSE management standards throughout your team (field and office-based).
- ensure all wells are planned & designed to meet all compliance criteria including regulatory requirements, policies and best practices, including full consideration of HSE & Sustainability goals in all designs
- influence technology strategy development by proactively providing feedback from lessons learnt during reviews, studies, deployment and implementation to our research/technical development teams.
- coordinate all assigned rig activities, ensuring well-work activities are optimized, understood, planned, resourced and managed within agreed time and budget.
- develop well engineering plans for each project in accordance with the overall multidisciplinary project plan.
- initiate change and champion best practice application of appropriate technical design, technology, and RtL practices.
- promote and encourage global learning and communication by maintaining an active learning network
- support technical improvements in the well delivery process.
- motivate and coach your rig team to excel

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
For your application to be successful you will need to:
- possess at least a higher education Diploma (eg. HND or equivalent), but preferably a Bachelors Degree or higher, in a technical or engineering subject.
- have previous experience of working in multi-disciplinary team environments.
- have extensive experience in Well Engineering, which must include:
o in-depth knowledge of well design theory and practice;
o substantial supervisory experience in the field as well as in an office-based environment for planning and executing daily operations support;
o a proven safety leadership record and familiarity with safety management techniques;
o practical knowledge and application of drilling optimization techniques (eg. Deliver-the-Limit, etc).
o strong knowledge of latest technology applications related to well and completion design
o good knowledge of standard drilling engineering software such as WellPlan for Windows and Compass

Desirable Skills / Qualifications:
Your application will be given preference if you can demonstrate previous interfacing with, or some experience in, the subsurface disciplines (geology, reservoir engineering, petrophysics) and completions design/operations supervision. Expertise in Deliver-the-Limit (DtL) and Advanced Safety Leadership techniques are two key factors for success in the job.
