You will engage in carrying out programmed work on deep or otherwise critical unconventional wells that are deeper than 15,000 feet, are complicated by pressure above 10,000 psi, contain sour gas, and with extended reach laterals. You will have direct field responsibility for the rig-less completion activities of unconventional wells located anywhere in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its territorial waters, as specified in the well completion program. Such wells may be exploratory or developmental, and entail the search for, or development of, unconventional hydrocarbon deposits, principally oil and gas.
As the successful candidate, you should have a high school diploma or completion of ITC (English, ERW; Math, MI), minimum of 12 years' experience with a strong preference for 15 years' plus of related experience, with proven job knowledge to handle operational responsibilities on critical wells, and demonstrated personnel attributes of sound judgment, dependability, honest work ethic, and leadership.
Alternatively, you can hold a Bachelor's degree in Engineering and nine years of experience related to rig-less completion of oil and gas wells.
