Will perform application engineering for all new and replacement ESPs. Will coordinate with contract holder to ensure that all ESP requirements from the vendors are forecasted and readily available to meet operational needs. Will identify and specify technologies required to promote maximum ESP performance. Will be responsible for the Dismantle, Inspection and Failure Analysis (DIFA) of failed ESP systems. This will not only identify the root cause of failure of the ESP equipment but will also include making the appropriate recommended equipment changes to prevent similar type failure modes. Accountable for submitting weekly/monthly/yearly performance reports with regards to the ESP performance. Will monitor the day to day operations of ESPs using a SCADA/PI system that provides real time data streams of down hole and surface operating parameters, making recommended changes when required to promote maximum ESP run life and production optimization.

Candidate should hold a degree in Petroleum Engineering or equivalent with 10 years combined experience in the oil industry and 7 years experience related specifically to ESP artificial lift.

Job Position Requirements Ability to conduct production surveillance activities using various surveillance tools (LOWIS, SCADA, OFM, Spotfire). Proficient in the use of SubPump, Prosper, DesignRite, and AutographPC for ESP design applications. Experience working with other forms of artificial lift techniques: gas lift, progressive cavity pumps, etc. Working understanding of drilling, reservoir, and production operational issues. Proven ability to diagnose and respond to downhole and surface well issues. Working knowledge of inflow performance theory and practical application. Effective technical presentation and writing skills. Self starter - ability to work with a minimum of supervision and deal with ambiguity. Successful multi-discipline team experiences. High proficiency in required technical and economic software packages (GAP/MBAL/IFM) or industry equivalent software programs/packages.

Objectives and Deliverables
Effectively design the ESP equipment completion requirements converting gas lifted wells to ESP operation. Provide production optimization plans for each ESP well. Maximize ESP runlife to exceed industry standards for similar type applications. Monitor ESP performance using SCADA, PI, IFM, and other surveillance tools. Produce ESP performance reports, associated DIFA reports, and production key performance indicator reports. Work together with drilling, asset development, and facilities to create capital and operational efficiencies, and to bring on new ESP wells.
