  • Ensure that there is a continuous emphasis on HSE and that BP Russia GWO implement and encourage the best practice wherever possible; within the framework of the NOJV itself, suggest and support HSE initiatives.
  • Provide the BP Russia GWO Team with a highly skilled and experienced individual in the area of Petroleum Engineering, with a bias to well interventions and new well completions, support the BP Russia Upstream Team as required.
  • Review NOJV operations in these areas and suggest and indicate areas that can be improved and where new and appropriate technologies can provide an enhanced outcome, assist the NOJV to assess and implement these suggestions.
  • Identify and suggest new and enhancing technologies and technical enhancements to the NOJVs and RN as appropriate, support the implementation and perform Technical Service Work to assist with their successful deployment.
  • Initiation of fit-for-purpose and pragmatic well technology programs with the NOJVs (e.g. Artificial Lift, ICD, Multi-laterals, low cost reservoir access, etc.), building on the reputation that we have earned to date.
  • Provide hydraulic fracturing analysis, support and design on field-wide or well by well basis as and when required by the business, support the businesses in moving to upper quartile stimulation outcome in NWD and new exploration.

  • Detailed understanding of New Well Delivery, completion operations, well intervention operations, well productivity enhancement options, ESP operations, IAM modelling and production technologies.
  • Black oil field development (with ESPs) and Gas field (tight-gas ideally) development experience desirable, with multi fractured horizontal wells. Life of well considerations and workover experience also helpful.
  • Demonstrable track record of working with multi-well pad developments, in an onshore oil or gas field environment and arctic conditions will be important. As well as high well-counts and waterflood environments.
  • Experience of Russian oilfield
  • Fluent in English and Russian languages


Desirable criteria:

  • Joint Venture and/or NOJV style experience is also beneficial.
