We are recruiting a Production Engineer for our client in Aberdeen.

This is an onshore, PAYE contract role.

The Production Engineer is responsible for production and injection surveillance, optimisation and forecasting. This role is key to maximising production by working closely with the other functional teams, to identify and efficiently deliver opportunities to increase well potential and improve uptime.

Duties & Responsibilities to include:

•Provide daily monitoring, evaluation, analysis of production/ injection performance against potential performance, maximize and optimize volumes.

•Ensure compliance with processes and quality control of production and allocation data and work with team to resolve issues as required.

•Develop an ability to undertake daily production engineering & support to offshore production operations/ drilling/ subsea and well services - "from well sand face to point of delivery"; ensure that any financial, change request and cost commitment projections for any production engineering activity, has a clear workscope, cost and schedule prepared and approved before work commences

•Generate weekly/monthly production forecast & injection targets and well test priorities

•Work with other engineers to provide short-term well production solutions that maximise well production within life of field, and cost and volume production/ support strategies

•Develop a working knowledge of production engineering software tools to be used for daily optimisation or for integration into reservoir models (e.g. Prosper/GAP)

•Be part of a small team to identify, develop, plan and manage well operation; well testing; well intervention; subsea; plant operation or plant modification targets and priorities to maximize production and/or injection.

•Complete post well intervention assessment, to ensure continual improvement

•Assist Production Engineering Department in providing input to new and existing asset developments

•Provide the primary interface between Facilities engineering, Operations, Exploitation and G&G groups.

•Investigate, research and make recommendations on the safest and most cost effective methods of well/ subsea production, while minimising any loss of production revenue through evaluation of new technology and use of innovative techniques, computer simulation modelling, specific well/ production engineering procedures and equipment

•Manage the well integrity process ensuring the wells are monitored and operated within their design limits and facilitating risk assessments and seek guidance to determine the remedial/surveillance data requirements where appropriate.

•Champion a culture of Process Safety excellence on company installation(s).

•Is fully visible, spending time with the offshore workforce to demonstrate Safety as a core value and Process Safety as paramount.

•Align, involve and empower the whole operations workforce supporting an asset (or assets) in the identification and management of MAH risks and Process Safety Hazards.

•Develop an awareness and ability to identify, investigate, audit and control technical change (within limit of discipline knowledge).

•Contribute when required to relevant, regular interface meetings between Exploitation (reservoir); Drilling; Well Services; Operations; (chemistry, volume eng, cost eng); Commercial and Finance sections of the organisation, ensuring Production Engineering issues are raised and acted upon.

•Develop a knowledge of cost control over all production engineering and allocated well engineering activities including interventions, repairs and change outs, and use to monitor and manage these activities.

•Develop an ability to work within Facilities Engineering teams to ensure investments are made on the right projects.



The ideal candidate should possess a Degree in Engineering or equivalent in related subject.

Relevant engineering experience which will include some or all of the following:

Well inflow, outflow, vertical lift performance, flow assurance, gas lift, ESPs, stimulation, well intervention, and operations.

Use and preparation of production design models and tools (eg simulation/ petroleum eng computer packages - Prosper, GAP, Pipesim, Hysis, Pro-11 etc, generic reservoir/ petroleum eng models, network well models, stimulation models, completion design).

Well functional design, well intervention, maintenance, performance evaluation, well testing, debottlenecking and plant performance.

Project management experience, excellent organisational and time management skills and the ability to co-ordinate different functions.

Good understanding and awareness of industry and client safety management systems, including well integrity, and use of risk assessment.

Attention to detail/quality assurance and ensure all standards are met through operations and continuously seek improvements.

Commercial acumen and the ability to appreciate the 'bigger picture'.


Masters qualification would be an advantage.
