Wellsite Trainee Drilling Engineer

Job Summary:

The Wellsite Trainee Drilling Engineer (TDE) is an entry level position for a graduate engineer to gain field experience in DNO drilling, completions and workover operations. In this role the trainee will work under experienced DNO personnel on both drilling rig operation and Engineering.

As an entry level position there will be a major focus on HSSE where the trainee will learn safety best practices, required safety behaviours and be expected to participate in DNO safety initiatives.

The TDE trains under and supports the Drilling Supervisor (DSV) / Night Drilling Supervisor (NDSV) in the planning, coordination, supervision, execution and reporting of wellsite operations. The TDE  is an “understudy” (shadow) position to learn the fundamentals of well operations.  During this time the TDE should not be placed in an operational supervisory role, including that of “night DSV." However he/she may be assigned specific tasks by the DSV in line with increasing competency.

The trainee’s development will be evaluated on the job and reviewed on a regular basis. With successful performance and sufficient experience the trainee will eventually qualify as a drilling engineer and will be able to run operations with minimal supervision.
