  • The dominant workload is Front End Project definition, tendering support, execution assurance and troubleshooting.

  • This position is specifically a Senior Technical Authority (TA2) design and execute role. Significant capability and autonomy in Engineering analysis and design is a requirement. Ability to perform design activities to various design codes and to provide practical solutions outside of code limits using analytical and numerical modelling techniques is required.

  • Operations and integrity experience (inc. TA2 status in this area) is an advantage

Accountabilities

  • Provision of first line technical and project related tasks with a focus on realizing asset specific HSE, integrity, cost and availability performance targets. Contribute specialist discipline engineering input to optimize business opportunities through the correct application and specification of discipline design requirements and implementation of associated best practices.

  • The UK sector has an aging infrastructure and some particularly challenging design issues and issues with reuse of existing facilities. Input on these critical issues is required to support current and future projects. Networking within the organisation, to fully understand brownfield issues related to pipeline and riser work scopes, is a key task.

Dimensions

  • Provide discipline engineering assessments of identified prospects for business development teams, projects and asset teams, and NOVs.

  • Provide engineering input for projects during all phases of the development projects, including Feasibility and Concept, Execution and also, when requested by UPO, pipeline operations i.e. maintenance and inspection work.

  • Develop, maintain, and follow front end engineering processes.

  • Give advice within own discipline and act as TA2 level design authority. Be flexible to work together with others in own discipline for best practices, across P&T, and with other disciplines for appropriate multi-disciplinary approach
