Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations' spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom's vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.

We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.


We are seeking an experienced rig-less site foreman to join our Unconventional Well Completions Operations & Production Engineering Department (UWCO&PED).

The UWCO&PED is responsible for providing technical support for all unconventional rig-less activities, production optimization, and well integrity analysis for all unconventional wells in Saudi Arabia.

Your primary role is to supervise field operations of rig-less completion sites, either contracted or Saudi Aramco-owned. 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.

Direct all well operations expediently, safely, and according to accepted industry practices, as outlined and specified in the well completion program.

Document the receipt, usage, and transfer of Saudi Aramco supplied materials and equipment. Review service company field tickets for accuracy of services provided and associated charges.

Ensures that Saudi Aramco blowout prevention standards are met in all respects, including equipment configuration, testing, and crew response. Assure that site and personnel comply with Saudi Aramco established safety standards and procedures.

Promote cost-saving ideas and awareness, with the view toward operational optimization consistent with safely meeting well objectives.

Provide on-job training to less experienced personnel assigned to the rig-less site.

Update upper management on a daily basis on the flow and progress of operations.

Communicate on a daily basis with your production engineering counterpart to provide timely updates, and seek technical consultancy if needed.

Communicate regularly and timely with contract service companies, including wireline, testing, coiled tubing, pumping, and fracturing.

Communicate on an as-needed basis with supporting organizations, including: Loss Prevention, Environmental Protection, Drilling & Workover, Transportation & Heavy Equipment, Water Well Services, and the Wellsites Division.

Be responsible for the safety of rig-less site crews and contracted service personnel numbering as high as 100 people, and the loss prevention of well materials and equipment.

Be accountable fiscally for Saudi Aramco-owned equipment and materials; timely communication with production operations headquarters; and logistical coordination of transportation services, materials movement, well services (both Saudi Aramco and contractor supplied), water support, and roads/location support.

Minimum Requirements

As the successful candidate, you should have a high school diploma alongside a minimum 15 years 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.
