The Company:
Our client is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with around 93,000 employees in more than 90 countries and territories. Their innovative approach ensures they are ready to help tackle the challenges of the new energy future.

The Role:
As one of the Well Engineering Researchers, you’ll conceive, design, construct, test and deploy new well engineering technologies. You’ll work with colleagues to invent, select and develop technology concepts, and complete the detailed analyses to convert concepts into designs, methods and procedures.

With the assistance of in-house staff and contractors, your work will include building prototypes before specifying, conducting and reporting on laboratory and field test programmes. You’ll also support early deployment of technology in the field.

The specific project for this position involves a new technology for drilling wells. As a spin-off this technology is now also applied for drilled pipe lines (river-crossing). This effort, which is conducted by a separate implementation company, needs to be technically supported, especially in the area of welding and drilling technology.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
With a PhD (or at least a very strong MSc) in applied mechanics, physics, aeronautics, civil engineering or a similar discipline, you’ll have published articles in leading scientific or engineering journals. Alternatively, you have a proven record of successful innovation in an industrial setting.

Specific experience in the field of industrial (pipe line) welding and/or drilling would be most welcome, but is not a requirement.
As most projects are of medium to long-term duration and the rewards in terms of field application are at least several years away, you’ll need to be a self-starter, have a genuine interest in technology development and think outside the current technology paradigms. We’ll also expect you to be able to provide proof of your imagination and inventiveness.
