KEY TASKS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Responsibilities include but not limited to:
- Production monitoring and evaluation of well performance and reporting on changing production parameters
- Capture Production data and ensure history match
- Must be able to run relevant software to determine the integrated production system capacity (IPSC), gap analysis between actual and capacity requirements and constraints and finding solutions to minimize the gap.
- Interpret production data and make recommendations based on the analysis
- Using various production engineering techniques to diagnose and determine causes for production depletion or water ingress or any other production issue
- Asset management planning for production of existing wells within the limitation of the processing facilities and resources.
- Production management techniques including real time optimization, gas lift, gas allocation, draw down models and optimal choke size management, sand control and monitoring.
- Work over planning, design, support and performance reporting including cost estimating and budgeting and go/no-go/abandonment decisions
- Production equipment optimization support with changing gas, oil and water rates and ratios
- Production system capacity, gap analysis between actual and IPSC with capacity constraints and finding solutions to minimize the gap
- Support subsurface team and geo-modellers as required for full field reviews
- Able to run screening economics for high grading of potential projects and prepare recommendation for well intervention work
