Drilling Engineer Resume

A drilling engineer is a technically qualified professional and his responsibility is to design plans and drill well for oil companies or in off-shore platforms. He/she has to work closely with the service contractors, drilling contractors, geologists and the other engineers and technicians of the organisation.

He or she has to keep a safe and perfect environment in the process.

Before taking up the drilling work, a drilling engineer has to plan regarding estimation of the value of sought reserves and the costs to access reserves, acquiring the property(if required), a well bore plan, a geological survey and the layout of the type of equipment to reach the well deep into it. He or she is also responsible to contribute the designs in respect of casing strings, cementing plans, drilling directions, drilling fluids and programs on drill string and drill bit.

A drilling engineer has to provide technical support at the site of the drilling and supervise the drilling process. He or she has also the responsibility to train the junior engineers and particularly train those, who are engineers, but not qualified petroleum engineers, and have come to work in oil companies.
