Drilling Analyst | Wellsite Geologist


Well Operations Analyst | Drilling Analyst, 1/2019 - 4/2020
Analyzed drilling operations for Chevron rigs operating in the Gulf of Mexico and highlighted invisible lost time (ILT) to the client through detailed daily deliverable using Techlog and PTK (Perform toolkit) software. The deliverables ranged from daily time logs to multipage drilling reports covering drilling efficiency as well as performance benchmarking using industry standards KPI metrics.
Ran KPIs on all tripping and drilling operations, this helped on optimizing tripping and drilling time compared to a targets/ Benchmarks set by the client, saved cost by eliminating ILT.
Generated multi-well comparison plots using offset wells with targeted drilling parameters, this helped the client to understand the relationship between parameters (Surface and Downhole), optimized and increased the rate of penetration performance that led to save cost on the project.
Monitored and highlighted different type of vibrations (Axial, torsional), Stick slip severity, this helped to mitigate the hazard associated with drilling HPHT wells and protect costly downhole equipment.
Used zonation technic to compare and optimize operations such as cement jobs, casing, liner and completion runs. The generated work helped to keep the client in the top quartile of performance when compared to peers in the Gulf of Mexico.
