This position is for an Engineering Technician for the R&D Horizontal Drilling Rig and Monster Dyno. This position will be responsible for learning how to safely operate all of the equipment, and to safely setup and teardown engineering test fixtures in the dyno and drilling rig.

The Drilling Rig simulates real downhole conditions for testing of various downhole tools. The Dyno allows for full function testing of downhole drilling motors as well as general flow loop testing of other Downhole Tools.

Primary Responsibilities:

Learn all aspects of the operation of the Dyno and Horizontal Drilling Machine (HDM) including the rig, HPU, controls, data acquisition, pump truck, fork lifts, test fixtures, etc.

Ensure safe operation at all times while following all HSE procedures and supporting the development and continual improvement of HSE procedures to maintain safe working conditions and environmental controls.

Assist with required maintenance and repairs of equipment to ensure equipment reliability.

To be flexible while working with Engineering teams to accomplish their testing needs, recognizing that many tests will have never been done before. Creativity and a “can do” attitude to find ways to safely accomplish the testing needs are critical.

To maintain a high degree of attention to cleanliness and organization of the test area.

In summary, this role will vary from days of very hands-on assembly and setup of large test fixtures, to days of operating and monitoring long tests, as well as continual improvement and attention to cleanliness and organization. This role will often be outdoors, so a willingness to work in temperature extremes at times is a requirement.

When testing is light, must be flexible to assist in other areas.

Including other responsibilities as required by the employee’s supervisor.

A degree is not required. Drilling rig, roughneck, hydraulics, mud pump, and/or Engineering testing experience is a plus and will all be considered. A minimum of 5 years relevant experience is required, more is preferred. Must be comfortable around big equipment, have a willingness to learn, have a passion for safety, and work well with others.
