Consultant/Real Time Specialist

Halliburton Energy Services, Inc

Consultant Importing data for trend analysis in real time and analyzing that data, i.e. drag chart during casing runs Monitor Well operations via INSITE and INTSITE Anywhere Ensuring all data in INSITE updates in real time, and is being displayed properly Ensuring that all data in INSITE Anywhere updates and displays properly, and is accessible by the client Charting and analyzing all BOP tests, FIT, LOT, Casing test and Cement jobs Provide drilling support on both deep water and shallow water operations, as well as various land operations throughout the world Performing various calculations to attain down hole pressures, lag time, equivalent circulating densities, pore pressure, and other parameters pertinent to drilling operations. Log analysis, both M/LWD and mudlogs Monitor wells remotely from various locations around the world Monitor pit volumes for losses Utilize ECD and SPP roadmaps for signs of cuttings loading to prevent stuck pipe Early Kick Detection .Utilization of COMPASSfor survey managment and to ensure the well was staying on path. Casing design using StressCheck. Torque and drag analysis using WellPlan, as well as surge/swab analysis and hydraulics Provide critical rotating speeds using Max BHA's whirl analysis Vibration monitoring, analysis, and mitigation Using WellPlan to torque and drag analysis, hydraulics analysis, and surge/swab analysis Connection Flow Monitoring Computer networking Trouble shoot IT issues. Worked with DEs on ways to reduce NPT. Worked closely with geologist and geophysicists to avoid potential issues while drilling Support extended reach and multi lateral wells.

Skills

Skills

WellPlan

Took the Landmark class on the WellPlan software, and used it to generate torque and drag analysis , figure out proper hole cleaning with hydraulics, and also utilize surge/swab to calculate safe running speeds

LWD

In depth experience working along side M/LWD engineers, as well as interpreting M/LWD logs to point out wet sand, potential pays, high vibration, etc.

Casing

Utilize Landmarks software WellPlan to model torqu and drag, hydraulics, and surge and swab, to ensure that the casing can be ran safely and at a cost effective speed/

Pit

Monitor pit for any signs of gains or losse, that could lead to a potential kick or blowout
