The Subsea Pipeline/Flowline Engineer is part of a SURF (Subsea Umbilical Risers Flowlines) team focused on delivery of subsea projects to new or existing hosts. The Subsea Pipeline/Flowline Engineer will be responsible for design, procurement, fabrication, installation and testing of the Pipeline/Flowline systems either for tie-back projects or for new developments. The successful candidate will work with the Design Contractor, Material Suppliers, Fabricators and Installers, as well as the project management services contractor. The successful candidate will also work with the Sub-Surface, Wells, Facilities and Operations teams to ensure the effective integration of the Pipeline/Flowline systems into the overall project. Contractors will be appointed during the pre-project phase and the Subsea Pipeline/Flowline Engineer will be required to visit and/or work at key vendors/suppliers facilities as well as working offshore during the installation and commissioning phases of the project. The Subsea Pipeline/Flowline Engineer also supports ongoing operations/field team activity for existing fields. The candidate would aid the asset support engineers to trouble shoot any problem, and aid in looking ahead to be proactive in the health of the Pipeline/Flowline system. In this role, there will be an opportunity to mentor junior engineers.
Key Accountabilities: - Demonstrate good safe work practices. - Determine subsea Pipeline/Flowline alternatives with system engineer. - Estimate costs and timing to bring the project to sanction. - Develop and maintain a project execution plan for the design, procurement, manufacture, testing and installation of the subsea flowline systems - Ensure all Value Improvement Practices are incorporated into flowline system design. - Provide and implement an assurance plan by for leading the design, construction, installation, and commissioning assurance reviews. - Manage the Pipeline/Flowline system and suppliers through execution of the project work plan to ensure that the project's objectives in terms of HSE, reliability, operability, schedule and budget are met. - Technical oversight of engineering contractor (including pipeline hydraulics, route selection, pipeline design, riser design, oversight of surveys, assistance with Environmental Impact Assessment, oversight of preparation of specifications, and preparation of permit applications). - Engage field personnel to get their active involvement in the design process and evolution of system operating guidelines. - Participate in HAZOPS, Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and System Integration Testing (SIT) - Develop a preventative maintenance program detailing required activities, timing, and responsibilities. - Interface with other GoM Deep Water project teams to progress the standardization initiative where it adds value to the projects - Participate in development, execution and application of pipeline/flowline technology development programs. - Provide leadership in demonstrating commitment to our Safety policy of 'no accidents, no harm to people, and no harm to the environment'.
Essential Criteria & Qualifications: - B.S. Degree in Mechanical/Civil Engineering with design and analysis experience - Working knowledge of mechanical equipment design practices and standards used for deepwater riser/flowline systems - Working knowledge of AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles?) and their fit with deepwater developments - Understanding of overall subsea system architecture - Familiarity with pipeline/flowline vendors - Knowledge of concepts and systems for deepwater developments, together with a familiarity of the challenges of deepwater environments - Experience in simultaneous operations involving production, drilling, maintenance and construction - Experience in commissioning and starting up new subsea tie-backs.
