About This Career
Well and Facility Asset Management Professionals gather, analyze and report information about company well and facility assets, including operating and non-operating wells (onshore and offshore), and field-based facilities and pipelines. They have in-depth knowledge of wells and facilities and manage the technical and regulatory reporting requirements throughout the assets’ lifecycle.
