Job Description

Fixed Equipment Engineer

 

Location: Houston, TX

Duration: Long-term contract assignment

 

Responsibilities: Assist the FPU team to deliver a cost effective and optimized design of the facilities (UFR, SPS and Topside) that meets the requirements of the project in safety, reliability, operability and maintainability for a 25-year design life.

Provide static equipment (such as pressure vessel, heat exchangers, WHRU) expertise and ensure consistency of design, execution planning and operational aspects of the PVV design on the FPU.

Manage interfaces between disciplines including SPS and UFR packages as required.

Main interfaces:

    • External - Engineering contractors
    • Internal (Project) - Field Operations, Package managers (SPS, UFR, FPU), Project Engineers
    • Internal (Company) - Technical entities from headquarters
Activities:

Engineering Management

  • Engage package managers, operations and engineering contractor to ensure clear scopes of work, functional requirements and performance criteria balancing needs of Operations and Maintenance with available project budget.
  • Guide work within the FPU and SPS Packages to ensure that schedule, technical, quality and HSES requirements are met or exceeded.
  • Report to the Engineering Manager and FPU Package Manager for all work activities within area of responsibility. Bring to earliest attention of FPU Package Manager issues which present a significant threat to the Package and offer mitigating measures / work plans
Technical

  • Act as Focal Point of Contact for the static equipment including pressure vessels, heat exchangers, and valves for the project, and interface with HQ and Contractors
  • Coordinate HQ support and prepare potential Total’s General Specifications derogation on static equipment topics
  • Participate in project meetings and reviews (i.e. design reviews, Interface meetings, HAZIDs / HAZOPs / technical reviews, constructability reviews, workshops)
  • Prepare project documentation when required
  • Review and comment on project documentation from external consultants and engineering contractors and subcontractors
  • Supervise Contractor and Vendors assistance related to mechanical matters
  • Highlight technical problem encountered and propose corrective actions
  • Validate any technical change or modification to the static equipment
  • Define, follow up and evaluate the engineering studies carried out by Engineer and Procurement Contractor and Construction Contractor
  • Actively participate in the definition and design of the FPU static equipment
  • Promote alternatives for piping design to reduce and optimize onshore work and offshore work
  • Monitor and manage studies related to static equipment during engineering (technical, costs, planning, interfaces, reporting)
  • Contribute to the technical evaluation of engineering, procurement, construction, installation and review/approval of deliverables from the design contractors
  • Organize assistance from TOTAL TEC or from external specialists as necessary
  • Promote cost-saving solutions in the design, clearly identifying potential deviations from the TOTAL referential and reporting these to the relevant entity for final decision on whether or not to implement
  • Monitor the interfaces with all packages in relation to the static equipment
  • Review and comment on Engineering deliverables, ensuring that they meet project requirements and standards
  • Contribute to smooth completion before handover to the Operations team
  • Participate in technical reviews during the engineering, construction, pre-commissioning and commissioning phases
  • Ensure proper reporting, highlighting critical issues to the project management and proposing remedial actions
  • Contribute to improving the project lessons learned
Interfaces

  • Provide effective leadership in identification and resolution of Packages (SPS, UFR, FPU) interfaces
  • Ensure identification and resolution of detailed interface issues, in conjunction with managers / senior discipline engineers, in an efficient and cost effective manner
  • Ensure interface requirements with the subsea facilities, flowlines and pipelines are incorporated into the design
  • Ensure operations and maintenance requirements are incorporated in the design
 

 

Accountable to the Engineering Manager for:

    • Managing the static equipment activities during the Project FEED and Detailed Engineering phase
  • Respecting HSE rules and requirements and ensuring that the design and the resulting operations will be performed in compliance with a high regard to Health, Safety, Security and Environmental requirements.
Required Skills / Certifications:

 

  • PE registration in Texas (preferred)
  • B.S. in Mechanical Engineering
  • Working knowledge of ASME BPVC and ASME B31.3/31.4
  • Working knowledge PDMS and E3D software
  • Familiar with 3D model viewer software Navisworks
  • Floating facilities experience
  • Firsthand knowledge of safe working practices on offshore construction projects
  • Firsthand knowledge of GOM Deep Water Developments
