Saudi Aramco's position as a world-leading energy producer offers unique opportunities for engineers to expand their potential. Soon, Saudi Aramco will be known not just as the reliable supplier of conventional oil and gas, but as a leader in full life cycle unconventional gas development. Consider the opportunity to join our team and help shape the future of the unconventional resource development!
As the successful candidate you will hold a Bachelor's degree in engineering or a related science as appropriate to the required discipline. An advanced degree is preferred and will reduce prerequisite work experience stated below by one year for master degree and two years for PhD.
You will have a minimum of 10 years' experience with at least 2-5 years in unconventional plays including shale or tight gas however we will consider candidates with more or less experienced depending on the quality of their experience. Experience must include land drilling operations and horizontal drilling including unconventional resources.
You will have the ability to use software skills: Casing design, hydraulics, directional designs, torque and drag, WellView and MS Office
You will have the ability to perform drilling engineering work requiring application of both standard and unconventional techniques, procedures and criteria in carrying out a sequence of engineering tasks.
You will have the responsibility to precisely and accurately design wells for unconventional drilling activities, estimating drilling well costs and AFE generation for company operated exploratory, appraisal, pilot and development activities.
You will gain experience in providing technical assistance to drilling operations staff to ensure that each well is completed in a safe, efficient manner. They will be expected to formulate new standards and formulate best practices for unconventional activities to achieve optimum drilling performance while lowering costs in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Additionally you will have the responsibility and authority to stop unsafe work by employees or contractors. The ability to work on a multidisciplinary team is a key asset.

Saudi Aramco's Exploration & Producing (E&P) business line oversees the world's largest reserves of conventional crude oil, and the fourth-largest reserves of natural gas. The Company's reserves portfolio include Ghawar, the world's largest onshore oil field, and Safaniya, the largest offshore field. Company geologists are actively seeking additional reserves in many areas of the Kingdom, offshore in the Gulf and the Red Sea and onshore in the deserts and mountains. Petroleum engineers and earth scientists in E&P work with cutting-edge technology to manage and produce these reserves, including 3D visualization, reservoir simulation and remote geosteering of multilateral wells. The Company's Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center, or EXPEC, is home to one of the industry's most powerful computer centers. Research and development into subsurface upstream technology is conducted at the EXPEC Advanced Research Center. For more than two decades in a row, Saudi Aramco has been ranked the No. 1 oil company in the world by Petroleum Intelligence Weekly, a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the men and women of Exploration & Producing.
