Responsibilities

The Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) Project Engineer is responsible for basis of design and field support for MPD operations with solutions related with hydraulic simulations and procedural expertise. The engineer will work closely with the Operator's related disciplines, MPD crew, third parties well systems and regulatory entities to come up with the safest and most efficient plans to drill an MPD well meeting all expectations.

The MPD Project Engineer will cover operations, from office (Weatherford or client) or location, included with the Weatherford MPD product suite (Victus automated MPD system, Pressure Pro MPD system, Rotating Control Devices, Riser Gas Handling system, Multiphase injection and multiphase returns/flowdrilling managed pressure control, for both land and offshore operations).

The objectives from a planning and support of MPD operations in term of MPD engineering simulations require that the engineer must be qualified to perform:
  • Steady state and transient ECD/ESD profiles in function of different MPD and drilling parameters (SBP, flow rate, mud specs, rpm, rop, etc.) and at well conditions (limitations, temperature/compressibility, rpm, and cuttings load effect, etc.)
  • Surge and swab simulations, tripping schedules (drilling BHA and casing)
  • Influx tolerance simulations (transient), MPD Matrix and IME
  • Well balancing with pill placement and full rollover
  • Pill displacement schedules
  • Managed Pressure Cementing schedules
  • MPD Schedules for non-conventional practices
  • Choke ramp tables
  • Hole cleaning
  • Surface line/equipment frictional pressure loss calculations
  • MGS flow capacity calculations
  • Writing MPD operating and contingencies procedures
  • Drawing Piping and Instrumentation diagrams
  • Analyze well parameters and propose improvements as well as detect inefficiencies.
  • Any other simulation/calculation related with our product line deliverables, function as well of evolution in time.


Qualifications

REQUIRED
  • Must have 5+ years field experience both land and/or offshore
  • Bachelor Engineering Degree Mechanical and Petroleum preferred, but will consider other related engineering degrees
  • 2 years Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) engineering experience

PREFERRED
  • 5+ years Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) experience
  • MPD simulators with the objective of providing MPD hydraulic simulations
