Reports to: Lead Design & Manufacturing Engineer

Cavitas is expanding the deployments of the THOR downhole heater globally and requires a Field Engineer to assist with this. THOR is similar in its deployment to an Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP), so experience with the deployment and maintenance of these pumps is highly desirable. The deployments will primarily be onshore but offshore experience and certification would also be a bonus, deployments are planned in USA, Mexico, Africa and the Middle East so a successful candidate must be willing to travel for the deployment period (7-14 days).

Key Responsibilities

  • Field deployment of the THOR downhole heater
  • Work well with the Electrical Engineer who is assisting with the deployment.
  • Working closely with 3rd Party contractors such as the workover crew, effective communication and good attention to detail is vital to ensure an efficient and safe deployment
  • Must understand and comply fully with all procedures including QSHE and collaborating with other Engineers to improve them based on field experience
  • Align with local HSE and QA assurance requirements for installations
  • Ensure all equipment is always safely handled to avoid injury to personnel or damage to the equipment 
  • Tracking and reporting internally on the development of the deployment
  • Maintenance of equipment when back in the workshop
  • Maintain equipment, facilities and work locations in a presentable and working condition.
  • Work assignments carried out to the highest quality level.
