As a Principal Mechanical Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry, your primary responsibility would be to oversee the design, development, and implementation of mechanical systems and equipment used in oil and gas exploration, production, and processing.
May include the following duties:
- Leading a team of mechanical engineers to develop new equipment or improve existing ones.
- Evaluating and selecting equipment suppliers based on technical and commercial criteria.
- Ensuring compliance with industry codes, standards, and regulations.
- Developing and managing budgets, schedules, and project plans.
- Performing feasibility studies and risk assessments for new projects.
- Analyzing equipment failures and proposing solutions to prevent or mitigate future failures.
- Conducting design reviews and providing technical guidance to other engineers.
- Collaborating with other departments, such as process, electrical, and instrumentation, to integrate mechanical systems into larger projects.
- Reviewing and approving engineering drawings, specifications, and other documentation.
- Participating in HAZOP (Hazard and Operability) studies and providing recommendations for mitigating process safety risks.
- Developing and maintaining relationships with clients, vendors, and stakeholders.
- Providing technical expertise and support to other departments, such as operations and maintenance.
- Responsible for creating and implementing mechanical designs and systems for the processing platforms.
- This includes systems for power generation, HVAC, fire protection, piping and pumping systems, and other mechanical equipment.
- Expected to provide technical leadership to the mechanical engineering team. You would be responsible for mentoring and guiding other engineers, reviewing their work, and ensuring that their designs are safe, reliable, and meet project specifications.
- Responsible for conducting feasibility studies to evaluate the viability of proposed mechanical designs and systems for CPPs. You would analyze technical data, consider cost implications, and evaluate potential risks and benefits.
- Responsible for ensuring that all mechanical designs and systems are compliant with relevant regulations and industry standards. This includes codes and standards such as API, ASME, and NFPA.
- Work closely with other departments, such as electrical and instrumentation, process, and project management, to ensure that all mechanical systems are integrated and aligned with overall project objectives.
- Providing technical support to the operations team during commissioning and start-up, as well as troubleshooting and resolving any mechanical issues that arise during the operation of the CPPs.
- Oversee all aspects of mechanical engineering projects, including planning, budgeting, scheduling, and execution. Ensure that projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the required quality standards.
- Design and develop mechanical systems, equipment, and components for oil and gas operations. This may include pipelines, pumps, compressors, heat exchangers, and other equipment.
- Provide technical guidance and support to project teams and other stakeholders. Stay up-to-date with the latest technology and industry trends, and use this knowledge to improve project outcomes.
- Ensure that all mechanical engineering projects comply with relevant safety standards, regulations, and industry best practices. Identify and mitigate potential safety risks, and develop contingency plans for emergencies.
- Lead and mentor a team of mechanical engineers and designers. Foster a culture of collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement.
- Communicate effectively with project stakeholders, including clients, contractors, suppliers, and regulatory bodies. Build and maintain strong relationships with key stakeholders.
The following requirements:
- Strong in Rotating with Good knowledge in Static Equipment
- Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering or a related field
- Professional Engineer (P.E.) licence preferred.
- 20+ years of experience in mechanical engineering for onshore plant/brownfield development projects in the oil and gas industry.
- Strong experience in CPP (Central Processing Plant) is required (at least 2 projects).
- Experience with FEED and EPC projects.
- Knowledge of international codes and standards for mechanical engineering design, such as ASME, API, and ISO.
- Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.
- Ability to work collaboratively with other engineers, designers, and stakeholders.
- Strong project management skills, including the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously.
