What are Production Consultants?
Production consultants, or production supervisors, handle the daily management of oil and gas production operations on behalf of contract oil and gas operators. They work to maximize profitability by increasing revenue and lowering operating expenses.
Production supervisors oversee the operator’s production plan during the contract term, handling various aspects of daily well production assignments and assisting in preparing completion, testing and workover procedures.
Production supervisors are highly knowledgeable and skilled in their industry with many having 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.
Production supervisors are generally between 35 and 50 years old with a weighted average between 50 and 70. However, some individuals are able to begin a career as a production supervisor in their late 20s.
