Job Purpose: Defines Wells uppwe/lower completion, gas lift, stimulation and performation design.  Executes the production strategy of existing wells. Troubleshoots well flow issues and participate/followup in the intervention and evaluation proposal/jobs.  Enhancement of production operation efficinecy through optimisation and synchronisation of the site activities.  Generating monthly Oil, Water & Gas Allocation Reports, and manage back allocation system and protocols.

Key Accountablities:

  • Job Specific Accountabilities (For Inactive Strings Management)

    • Steward the process of daily well monitoring based on flow tests that use to be conducted on monthly basis per string and adjustment of Flow Rate versus assigned Technical Rates.
    • Performance review of strings after scale or chemical treatment.
    • Close monitoring of intermittent strings performance and the disposal wells (Island and Juck-Up),
    • Ensure the process of the developee/interns programs and provide guidance/ support when required
    • Steward the review for all inactive strings and identify the problems and possible causes and estimate the associated production and injection losses.
    • Supervise the categorization process for inactive strings as per ADNOC guidelines.
    • Study and identify the required diagnostics and surveillance.
    • Develop / review the monthly report for inactive strings status and update.
    • Study and review various reactivation methods considering new technologies and unconventional ways and practices, whenever applicable.
    • Develop short and long term reactivation plan.
    • In conjunction with drilling establish high Level plan for the reactivation and provide the operational support during execution.
    • Review workover candidates, define & design well intervention and remedial technique. Prioritize scheduling in coordination with reservoir management, Corporate Planning and Drilling.
    • Investigate well problems related to flow assurance, develop the remedial and follow up the execution in coordination with Well Integrity and Drilling.
