Drilling engineer with 2 years of experience in onshore projects (Rajasthan & KG-onshore, India) as well as offshore HPHT project (Ravva offshore, India). Involved in planning and execution of new wells which includes time and cost estimation, well performance analysis, directional trajectories formulation, hydraulics optimization, cementing calculations, bit selection and well control measures implementation for diverse wells with varying temperature and pressure ranges as well as complex trajectories. Worked as rig site drilling engineer / night drilling supervisor on onshore drilling rigs (750-2000HP mobile rapid rigs) and offshore Jack-up rigs. Well trained in usage of Landmark suites like Wellplan, Stress Check, Compass, Wellcat to simulate torque and drag analysis, casing design, BHA design, anti-collision analysis, well trajectory design, slot allocation of multiple wells, etc. My career objective is to develop myself as a subject expert in well construction and achieve vertical career growth in a reputed E&P company.
