D&M seeks an experienced completion engineer with a broad skillset to work with multidisciplinary teams while performing integrated reservoir studies. This individual is also expected to perform independent evaluation of current and past production enhancement operations in conventional and unconventional reservoirs to estimate operation efficiency, design and monitor treatment execution according to industry standards, and communicate those results through verbal and written reporting.


  • Provide quality control of completion data including drilling, stimulation, and production phases of well operations collected for the project. Essential understanding and hands-on experience in well completion design basis and issues, pre-treatment diagnostic testing, stimulation fluid rheology and laboratory fluid and materials validation testing, equipment/perforating limitations and qualification tests, tubular stress and loading analyses, completion-brine usage, diversion techniques applicability and validation testing.
  • Evaluate and design hydraulic fracture completion using commercial fracture simulation software programs. Proficient knowledge of fracture stimulation software including GOHFER, E-StimPlan, Petrel’s KINETICS, Fracpro, FracCADE.
  • Utilize multiple methods for evaluation, including numerical modeling, analytical modeling, performance analysis through decline curve analysis, material balance, and other methods of analysis. Essential understanding of hydraulically fractured reservoir evaluation based on well testing techniques, knowledge in far-field and near well methods of fracture diagnostics (including microseismic, fiber-optic and tracers) and other methods aimed in reservoir delineation and field development is preferred.
  • Identify current completion practice inefficiencies and provide recommendations for improved production enhancement and fracture stimulation designs/processes, including recompletion operations, pre-treatment diagnostic tests and post-stimulation flowback.
  • Develop plans for data collection programs, future technology applications, and field development.
  • Determine and incorporate components of a completion evaluation into field development study.
  • Perform economic analysis of past and future stimulation projects.
  • Communicate results in a clear manner, verbally and in written form. Proper English grammar and composition ability is essential.
