About this role

Specific Accountabilities:
  • Advise on development & update of production guidelines to optimize gas and condensate from Company wells;
  • Lead the implementation of the guidelines while managing well production to meet day to day gas demand for LNG trains;
  • Develop response plans for non-routine events requiring the management of special parameters. Develop production/export scenarios to deal with unplanned down time and its mitigation;
  • Lead the development and maintenance of well/facilities models (IPM) from reservoir to feed gas to support well back allocation/reservoir simulation and integrated well performance analysis. Co-ordinate study of performance of production system from reservoir to facilities. Recommend additional facilities and sub-surface data acquisitions, if required, to investigate production performance problems using production-modelling tools. Identify bottlenecks and recommend changes to Facilities Engineering, Well Engineering and Reservoir. Lead the multi-disciplinary team and develop solutions to improve production performance;
  • Establish well testing programs in collaboration with reservoir engineering; analyse well test data to predict future well and production performances. Formulate rig based well testing contract in terms of equipment for testing measurement and sampling;
  • Lead the design of rig based well tests, well clean up and facilitate well handover;
  • Provide guidance to conduct PLT interpretations to enhance and use production profiling for better understanding and decision making;
  • Advise stimulation design scenarios, facilitate selection of best case, and support execution of the same to obtain optimum productivity increase in the well;
  • Design, develop and implement real time production management using POIS and petroleum engineering data handling tools and applications. Analyses production data to verify compliance with guidelines. Monitor production/injection/well performance data and advise on actions if needed;
  • Validate accuracy of the measurement and metering electronics/transmitters by initiating routine surveillance and cross-examination. Troubleshoot mis-measurement with metering engineer and operations to obtain quality data and minimize uncertainty in well performance;
  • Review well fluid back allocation and re-conciliation using primarily well test and reservoir engineering inputs related to reservoir allocation and PLT interpretation. Monitor the efficacy of the back allocation system and volumes;
  • Develop injection guidelines for onshore wastewater wells. Ensure water quality guidelines are developed and available and strict compliance with the quality of water is enforced. Assure contingency and emergency plans are in place and communicated. Work closely with Engineering and Onshore Operations for system improvement.
