Conduct relevant petroleum-engineering studies related to well integrity and support the design review for the new wells. Search and evaluate innovative technology to improve Well Integrity Engineering diagnostic and repair techniques. Principal Accountabilities 1. Analyse well integrity problems and recommend remedial measures by managing the process for data investigation to ensure the integrity of Dukhan wells, the safety of personnel and the protection of the environment. 2. Develop strategy and prepare programs to carry out well integrity investigations on critical wells to ensure a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of well problems. 3. Oversee the implementation and quality control of critical activities by visiting the well locations to ensure that well integrity investigations are performed efficiently and that any unforeseen operational problems are managed correctly. 4. Evaluate drilling, work-over and completion proposals by giving particular attention to well integrity issues to ensure that the design of new and workover wells adequately address well integrity and abandonment requirements. 5. Investigate and evaluate innovative technology to improve well integrity diagnostics and remedial action and make recommendations for follow-up trials. 6. Manage the execution of innovative technology trials and based upon the results make recommendations for contracting the services to enhance well integrity operations and to reduce downtime and cost. 7. Assess and rank the integrity of Dukhan wells by evaluating wellbore cement quality, especially across reservoir and potential aquifer formations to ensure the complete isolation between the formations and the environment. 8. Manage the risk assessment process for "high risk" wells by coordinating and facilitating HAZOP workshops to ensure that well integrity risks are systematically identified and rigorously managed. 9. Establish the safe operating envelope (MAASP & MAWOP) for Dukhan wells by taking into account the evaluation of annuli pressures, laboratory analysis of annuli effluents, corrosion reports and cased hole log analysis, to ensure that wells are operated safely within approved criterion. 10. Develop and mentor Qatari engineers as well as the engineers having less experience to help achieve QP Corporate objectives for Qatarization. Experience & Skills • Minimum 15+ years work experience as a Petroleum Engineer in oil and gas upstream industry. • Petroleum Engineering expertise including drilling, well completion, workover and well integrity studies and review of large and mature oil and gas fields. • Proven experience of recommending remedial work solutions for all types of wells. • Knowledge of HAZOP techniques to identify and mitigate well integrity risks and experience facilitating risk assessment workshops. • Experience/knowledge of Petroleum Engineering software (PROSPER, OFM). • Hands on experience of Well Integrity Management Software (WIMS). • Must be familiar with API and NORSOK International Standards related to Well Integrity Management. • Experience with interpretation of cased hole diagnostic logs. • Excellent communication in English (verbal and written) • Strong teamwork skills, and advantageous to have experience working in a multicultural environment in a leadership position. • Must have experience and willingness to mentor less experienced engineers. • Desirable to have experience working in mature production fields where retrieving and integrating well data from files and variable sources is challenging. • Skilled in the evaluation, analysis & interpretation of technical information and assessing risk. • The role will require preparation of technical reports and presenting recommendations at all levels within the organization and also outside if required.
