Merlin ERD

Senior Drilling Engineer and Regional Development Manager

Location: Somewhere in the middle east

You’ve been drilling for a few years now (10 to 15, maybe more) and people know your name. You are considered a safe pair of hands. Your latest project has all the good stuff, extended reach, high angle or above average complexity, wellbore stability issues, you name it, it’s there. Life’s pretty good in general, but something’s wrong. You’ve just finished the morning call, it’s chaos. You’re stuck. You know why, but no-one else seems to know. Or care. Again. Well, today’s your lucky day….


If you know what we’re talking about and you want to do more than “work for the man”, want to help others succeed and know how to facilitate it, want to be influential in your field and want to be part of something greater than the sum of its parts – we want to talk to you.


Recognised internationally as leaders in our field, Merlin ERD Ltd help our clients design and drill the longest wells in the world. They range from the super majors to smaller, but no less impressive independent oil companies, who contract our innovative services to add or protect value, which can reach hundreds of millions of dollars on single projects.


To support our plan for growth, we are looking for a leader in the middle east who can take our business to the next level. You’ll have significant extended reach, high angle and complex well drilling experience so we can rely on your technical competence. You’ll also be resourceful and personable with a wide network of contacts throughout the region which will give you access to decision makers in our target clients. We only win if they do.


Initially you’ll operate remotely from the mother ship, but as time goes by and business develops, we’ll expect you to develop a team to support Merlin’s core competencies. You will be the driver in the region but ably supported by your colleagues in Scotland. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity, forward your CV with a covering letter indicating how you would be invaluable to Merlin ERD Ltd.


Please forward your application to by 17:00 hrs, Thursday, 13th February 2020.
