Job Profile Summary

This role is part of the GoM Reservoir Development Performance Team which is currently leading a cross functional project to address the overall skin threat in GoM. Skin is not a new threat for the region but has become more prevalent with increased depletion. Approximately 50% of wells in GoM have been impaired by high skin. The GoM Skin Project was created to address the growing threat and increasing deferrals. Historic efforts to address the issue were focused on a single problem and did not address the complexity and interdependencies of the issue. The project is structured with 6 themes Subsurface, Completions, Drilling, Production Operations, Remediation, and Knowledge Management. There are over 100 distinct tasks to be delivered in 2019. This short term assignment focuses on delivering the majority of the tasks within the subsurface theme.
