The Role:
The Drilling Fluids Specialist must achieve an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge, and is directly responsible for safely and efficiently managing well site operations relevant to the drilling fluids system. At this level the employee has an in-depth understanding of the drilling fluids system chemistry, and is capable of properly testing and maintaining the properties of the drilling fluids system without supervision, and as per the customers requirements. At this level the employee is also capable of making recommendations to address hole cleaning issues or lost circulation events, and is capable of managing the drilling fluids system during well control conditions.

Essential Responsibilities and Duties:

General Drilling Concepts

- Knowledgeable regarding drilling rig types, rig components and rig component functions
- Knowledgeable on drilling operations (i.e. drilling, tripping pipe, running casing, cementing, completions, etc.)
- Knowledgeable on the drilling fluids circulation system, it's components, and each component's function

Drilling Fluids Systems

- Knowledgeable on key M-I SWACO product properties, applications, and limitations
- Knowledgeable on the properties of the mud (i.e. solids calculations, fluid chemistry, etc.)
- Knowledgeable on the effects of the products/systems on the mud chemistry (i.e. impact on pH, calcium, alkalinity, etc.)
- Able to generate and implement the drilling fluids program through close collaboration with the Project Engineer
- Responsible for maintaining the drilling fluids system within specifications
- Able to calculate volumes (i.e. mud pits, annular, pipe capacity & displacements) without supervision; apply effective pit management principles (i.e. slugs, pills, storage, reserve, kill muds, etc.) during drilling operations
- Knowledgeable on the solids control process and equipment and able to explain how various recommendations (i.e. screen size selection, shale shaker settings, etc.) will impact the drilling fluid properties and/or efficiency of solids removal
- Responsible for making appropriate recommendations that will prevent or address different hole problems (i.e. sloughing shales, gumbo shales, abnormal pressures, faults, etc.) encountered during drilling operations; making appropriate recommendations that will prevent or address lost circulation events (i.e. Mud Weight reduction in case of loses); making appropriate recommendations that will minimize the impact of wellbore conditions (i.e. temperature, pressure, formation, etc.) on the drilling fluids system; making appropriate recommendations that will minimize the impact of contaminants (i.e. H2S, C02, Water intrusion, reactive formations, cement, etc.) on the drilling fluids system; making appropriate recommendations related to the drilling fluids system that will improve hole cleaning efficiency (i.e. flow rates, Low Shear Rate Viscosities, RPM, ROP, etc.)
- Able to perform hydraulics calculations (i.e. annular velocity, bit hydraulics, ECD, etc.) using Virtual HydraulicsTM software without supervision; demonstrate an advanced or higher level of proficiency in the use of Virtual HydraulicsTM software
- Knowledgeable regarding the impact of Particle Size Distribution (PSD), chemicals and contaminants on fluid loss
- Able to recognize stuck pipe incidents and select appropriate pipe release agents; identify and recognize lost circulation symptoms and select and apply appropriate remedial treatments; convert to a Lignosulfunate, Lime, Saturated Salt or Gypsum mud system without supervision
- Additional intermediate or advanced knowledge and skill requirements will apply for complex drilling operations such as those encountered in deepwater

Drilling Fluids Testing & Reporting

- Responsible for validating all critical data required to complete daily reports
- Proficient with the use of daily drilling fluid reporting software and able to perform all relevant calculations
- Able to properly calibrate testing equipment as necessary without supervision
- Responsible for ensuring that drilling fluids samples are collected and that all relevant drilling fluids tests are conducted properly; interpreting the results (i.e. noticeable trends, contaminants, etc.) of all relevant drilling fluids tests
- Able to explain the impact of hole conditions (i.e. contaminants, solids, pressure, etc.) on the drilling fluids testing results
- Responsible for making appropriate chemical treatment recommendations based on the drilling fluids testing results that will optimize drilling performance; ensuring that a complete recap is completed for each hole section through the end of the well
- Able to generate the drilling fluids program through close collaboration with the Project Engineer
- Logistics Management

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, or Petroleum Engineering (or equivalent) preferred
Minimum: 2-year Associate/Technical Degree or equivalent
