Job Responsibilities & Activities
Establish general basis of design (BOD) for well completion in ABB field.
For each production scenario, design completion concept, configuration options (including tubing sizing, completion accessories, metallurgy) and deployment strategy using acquired reservoir, production, and fluid data of selectively-tested Barik and Miqrat reservoirs.
For each production scenario, define well completion selection criteria and recommend most optimum completion option. Prepare notional completion program for each optimum option.
Define well completion standards for various completion phases (post-drilling, post-fracturing, post-completion) conforming to OOCEPs two barrier policy.
Perform quantitative risk assessment on the option of omitting subsurface safety valve from the production string.
Define velocity string requirement, if any. Establish velocity string specifications and installation schedule using production profile forecasted by OOCEPs reservoir engineering team.
Responsible for completion engineering evaluations that contribute to well planning, conceptual design, and material ordering.
Demonstrate the ability to execute preliminary completion and operations design that permit the development and assessment of various well design concepts under consideration for current and future field development plan implementation. This involves concept definition, clear understanding of concept feasibility as well as development of screening estimates for time, cost and equipment required.
Work closely with Production Technology and Well Delivery teams to produce and assess several completion designs from sand face (reservoir) to wellhead.
Select optimum completion design taking into account all the lifecycle elements, installation risk, well intervention, and well treatment requirements, arriving at an optimum balance of cost, risk and value.
Ensure that formal completion design reviews are carried out and documented with action points followed up and closed out.
Actively pursue design improvements, incorporating learning points from appraisal wells and best practices from other Operators.
