The main mission of the production engineer is to ensure the efficient and secure management of oil production.
It plays a vital role in the exploitation of oil fields by ensuring that production is optimized in a safe and profitable manner.
Production Planning: The Production Engineer works in conjunction with exploration and drilling teams to develop production plans. He analyzes geological and engineering data to determine appropriate methods and technologies to maximize oil recovery.
Oversight of drilling operations: The production engineer oversees drilling activities, including the design and construction of oil wells. He ensures that drilling operations are carried out in accordance with safety standards and environmental regulations. It also monitors well performance and identifies any problems.
Optimization of production: The production engineer works to improve the efficiency of oil production by using techniques such as the injection of water or gas to maintain the pressure in the reservoirs, the use of technologies of enhanced oil recovery (such as polymer injection) and the implementation of advanced monitoring systems to detect production problems.
Risk Management: The production engineer assesses the risks associated with petroleum operations and implements prevention and management measures to minimize possible accidents, leaks or spills. He works in compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations.
Interdisciplinary collaboration: The production engineer works closely with other professionals, such as geologists, geophysicists and technicians, to solve technical problems and optimize oil production. He also works closely with maintenance teams for preventive maintenance and repair of production equipment.
A production engineer in the drilling and exploitation of oil fields must have the following skills:
We are currently looking for an experienced well superintendent for an offshore deepwater project in Angola, for 8-12 months, starting asap. The Well superintendent will be responsible for follow up of all completion operations and ensuring the operations are performed safely. The challenge is to optimize operation performance and reach budget objectives fully achieving all well productivity and development goals within a high safety and environment awareness level.
