Principal Production Engineer South East/North West

Centrica is investing in the UK

Centrica’s upstream business explores, develops and produces oil and gas in the UK, Norway, Netherlands, Trinidad and North America. Production has doubled since 2008 and is set to increase by 50% to over 200,000 bopd in the next two to three years. Current reserves are around 440 million boe. We need experienced, pioneering and driven professionals to develop new ideas and deliver these opportunities.

Our East Irish Sea (EIS) business unit operates over fifty wells, ten platforms and seven producing fields including the giant South Morecambe and North Morecambe gas fields. Recent drilling successes and advances in geoscience techniques and thinking have led to us building a new portfolio of opportunities in the EIS and adjoining basins. The discovery of the Rhyl field in December 2009 was a product of this initiative and we are now capitalising on this with further appraisal and exploration of the area. There is a four well drilling programme ongoing and we are also acquiring an Ocean Bottom Cable seismic survey, the first one ever within Centrica. We have plans to develop four satellite gas discoveries and there is also a high profile Carbon Capture and Storage underway.


To support this growth we are recruiting a Principal Production Engineer. You will provide expert Production Technology/Petroleum Engineering

guidance for managing the existing producing well stock and new developments. This is a high visibility, hands-on, technical role with the chance to make a significant impact on production. You are likely to become a key player (“the go to person”) within EIS and across the wider group for this type of role.

We offer a highly attractive compensation package and flexible working practices. You will be working with the large subsurface community at Centrica’s headquarters in Windsor as well as the Base Production & Operations Management teams in Morecambe Bay. The Windsor offices offer a gym, a subsidised restaurant, access to the River Thames and other amenities. The Morecambe Bay offices are close to the Lake District with stunning views out over the East Irish Sea and beautiful countryside. There is flexibility on your exact working pattern and home location but to ensure success you must establish a presence at both locations. Relocation assistance is available where appropriate.
