How to Become a Completion Consultant
Completion consultants are highly knowledgeable and skilled professionals who supervise workover and completion operations on behalf of a contract oil and gas operating company. These operations include hydraulic fracturing of vertical and horizontal wells, coil tubing cleanout, running tubing, casing and frac strings, setting down-hole pumps and rods, as well as pumping unit installation. There are several paths to become a completion consultant.
Many completion consultants have 20 to 30 years of oilfield experience. However, it is not uncommon for individuals with 10 to 15 years’ experience to break into these roles.
