Supportdrilling supervisor onsite with all the necessary tools to cover the entire operation, through planned meetings to achieve the objective of drilling activities. Ensure and coordinatetimely subprograms for well construction (run coaters, cementing, testing integrity and influx, unplanned detours, fishing, etc.), through the adequate allocation of contracts in order to impact in the least possible the drilling schedule. Maintain track of spending vs budget to establish the resources that need improvement in the short term. Review and analyze the adjustments to the schedule and budget for well construction, through meetings or workshops with technical and administrative staff. Monitor well construction operations through scheduled meetings and inspections of operational areas, visualizing deviations and take corrective actions to ensure project success. Verify and validate services reports from contractors.


Company Man Drilling Rig and Workover, PDVSA-Venezuela.

Review and implement well programs approved by appropriate authority in compliance with the technical specifications, expertise and customer requirements to enable operations to run as planned to ensure compliance in type'' S'' and'' J'' 20000 ft TVD deep wells. Horizontal wells of 10.000 ft MD, 5.000 ft TVD, construction of 40 wells annual with a minimum time of 18 days per well, reducing the days of scheduled time. Develop and maintain inventory of tools and supplies, according to the requirements of the contract and fluid being used in the operations. Make the appropriate orders and maintain stock of spare parts or materials in place for its good performance. Control and direct all daily operations including well control, personnel security, environment and maintenance of the wellbore to avoid unscheduled stops during operations. Carry out a check of all specifications and measures tools and equipment utilized in the well. Conduct inspection at the time of delivery of the tools ensuring that the tools used are fit and meet the standards. Place in DIMS reporting operations drill system by filling data every 8 (hours) keeping informed consultant and engineer any abnormality. Perform quality check of the data to allow the company to establish statistics and making decisions improving drilling process. Coordinate the mobilization of the required equipment to the next well. Coordinate the implementation of the pre-boot tests before starting operations in a well to confirm whether your computer is capable of initiating operations and ensure the good performance of electromechanical equipment. Comply with the procedures established in the operational procedure manual. Supervise drilling crew, evaluate their behavior and suitability for the activities assessing the need of training to improve their skills.
