It can vary substantially, but an average day involves attending various meetings, answering phone calls from operations you have running in the field, and working to plan/design future operations. A Wells engineer does not work a 9 to 5 job. As long as there are operations running in the field for which you are responsible, you must be reachable at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
