Well Testing Operator

Job Overview

You act as a bridge between wellsite operators and the well when questions arise. Well testing operators gather information about what is happening down in the well. You look at wellbore pressure, production rates and saline percentages. The data you provide helps operators determine well performance and whether there are production issues. Are you interested in finding answers? If you’re technically and mechanically inclined, you may want to put your skills to the test as a well testing operator.

Well testing operators use various surface and subsurface tools to evaluate the characteristics of the formations within a wellbore to determine economic viability. They test for pressure, salinity, flow rate and other production factors. These operators interact with members of the drilling crew and supervisors to improve job performance.

Transferability information for this occupation is available on the Oil and gas well drillers, servicers, testers and related workers.
