A high-growth, low-cost leader in natural gas production, Encana is reshaping North America's energy portfolio by providing a clean, affordable, abundant resource for future generations. Our four natural gas key resource plays in the USA Division- Haynesville, Jonah, Piceance and Texas - are long-life formations where we apply our resource play hub strategy to maximize production and generate value that was previously unrecognized.
We are seeking an experienced engineer to develop solutions for optimizing three phase gas gathering from natural gas wells in the DJ Basin of Colorado. The role will require collaboration with other disciplines to model and pilot potential solutions using HYSIS, Pipesim and or other Nodal Analysis models in addition to working with day to day operational oil/gas productivity issues.
Lead efforts of multi-disciplined teams to develop a multi-year gathering optimization plan. Key components are to understand Multi-phase flow gathering systems.
Developing gas gathering hydraulic models to optimize the gas gathering systems and reduce bottlenecks in the system.
Perform engineering analysis of oil handling assets to optimize deliverability. Evaluate the effectiveness of treatment or separation and make technical recommendations.
Perform engineering analysis of assets to optimize gas deliverability from both Horizontal and Vertical wellbores. Evaluate the effectiveness of compression based upon pilots and modeling and make field wide recommendations.
Develop data acquisition protocols around scaling and corrosion of gathering systems.
Design, execute, and manage the installation of gas facilities, gas pipelines, compression and emission reduction projects to insure schedule and lowest project cost.
Manage additional projects that might be assigned such as industry performance comparisons and to evaluate strategic business development opportunities.
Attend safety meetings, safety stand downs, offered safety training and appropriate skills training and development classes in order to develop Environment, Health, and Safety as core values.
Preferred 5 years' experience specific in downstream oil and gas activities, such as gas gathering, liquids handling, oil and gas primary separation equipment and operations.
Familiarity with HYSIS Modeling software a plus.
Design experience with natural gas gathering systems, compression, dehydration and gas conditioning facilities requested.
Demonstrated success in resolving production various challenges such as scaling and corrosion.
Ability to listen and communicate effectively in multi-disciplined teams.
Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Petroleum Engineering or equivalent field of study.
Commitment to Encana Expectations and passionate desire for continuous improvement in these areas.
LEAN/Six Sigma experience is preferred.
Ability to satisfy US Department of Justice requirements with or without assistance from Encana.
