Saudi Aramco, a fully integrated, global petroleum and chemicals enterprise, is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Through our 80-year history we have become a world leader in hydrocarbons exploration, production, refining, distribution, shipping and marketing, and the world’s top exporter of crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs). We manage proven conventional crude oil and condensate reserves of 260.2 billion barrels. Our average daily crude production in 2013 was 9.4 million barrels per day (bpd).
Saudi Aramco is embarking on a program to develop its world class Unconventional Resources, and is seeking experienced professionals to join our Unconventional Multidisciplinary Team.
Unconventional Exploration requires experienced Unconventional Drilling Engineers with experience in drilling and completing shale and or tight gas reservoirs. Of primary interest is experience in maintaining shale integrity while drilling and setting up construction of the well for effective stimulation.
You will perform Drilling Engineering functions that require advanced knowledge to provide sound drilling technical support to drilling operations, drilling equipment, projects, and drilling technical services. This expertise will help to successfully deliver the Unconventional Resources program objectives.
As the successful candidate you will hold a Bachelor's degree in Engineering, preferably Petroleum Engineering, Mechanical or Chemical Engineering.
You will have a minimum of 8 years' experience in Drilling, Unconventional Engineering, and operations.
Duties & Responsibilities
You will be required to perform and demonstrate the following:
Determine sound drilling engineering methods and procedures to be used on assigned drilling problems.
Perform and complete assignments and studies in areas assuring conformance to overall objectives of all phases of drilling operations, including drilling penetration rate optimization, new drilling technology and development studies.
Analyze data and performance of new or existing techniques to determine the need for or benefit from studies, recommendations and or facility modifications with respect to unit costs, and operating efficiency consistent with established safety, and operating requirements.
Manage and prepare studies and reports on drilling subjects, provide recommendations, alternative proposals, and preliminary design and program outlines with statistical cost data, economic analyses, back-up data and charts, or assist in the presentation of studies and proposals to management, technical, and operating groups.
