You will use your expertise to:

  • Support expense projects and process changes, monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) and provide support to ensure that operational targets are met, required corrective actions are communicated and perform effective follow-ups
  • Perform technical investigations and root cause analysis and provide technical feedback and recommendations to return the plant to normal operation after upsets
  • Perform required studies, problem definitions, and calculations for plant optimization
  • Develop tools to improve both process and equipment monitoring and performance projection
  • Perform calculations to identify required process conditions, production loss, emission spills and required chemicals
  • Compare existing plant operating conditions against design conditions, identify cause of deviation and area of improvement
  • Provide technical support for tasks such as: regulatory reporting, operational procedure reviews, management of change (MOC) execution, risk reviews, bottleneck identification and plant turnarounds
  • Support continuous improvement efforts through stewardship of the MOC process among the process engineering discipline
  • Handle development and maintenance of living process engineering documents and tools such as; process flow diagram (PFD), heat and material balance (H&MB), piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID), TOE (safe operating limits)
