Roles & Responsibilities

  • Systematically develop, monitor and continuously improve an asset maintenance strategy that ensures the asset will function as required and realize value throughout its life cycle. Task types include:
  • Predictive Maintenance or PdM (e.g., vibration analysis, oil analysis, pressure-volume analysis)
  • Preventive Maintenance or PM (e.g., scheduled overhauls)
  • Failure-finding (e.g., proof-testing of Machinery protection systems)
  • Corrective Maintenance (e.g., replacement work instructions, repair plans)
  • Ensure spare parts are held in sufficient quantity to appropriately manage asset unavailability risk.
  • Lead or participate in incident investigations and root cause analyses (RCA)
  • Leverage learning from experience to continuously improve the asset maintenance strategy and LyondellBasell’s broader asset management systems.
  • Participate in multi-disciplinary asset performance improvement teams.
  • Apply data analysis techniques to develop engineering solutions to repetitive failures and other problems that adversely affect process safety, personnel safety, environmental, regulatory, operational and quality performance.
  • Apply value analysis (e.g., life cycle cost analysis) to repair/replace, repair/redesign and make/buy decisions.
  • Provide technical support/expertise within your discipline during the front-end engineering and design (FEED) and execution phases of capital projects to ensure newly-installed and modified assets realize value throughout their life cycle.
  • Collaborate with peers at the site, within the Bayport Complex and across LyondellBasell.

Min. Qualifications

  • Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minimum of 4 years relevant, proven experience in the refining, petrochemical, chemical process, or power generation industries is preferred.
  • Experience with extrusion equipment (e.g., extruders, pelletizers) is preferred, but is not required.
  • Strong interpersonal leadership skills are critical due to the requirement for effective communication of complex issues across the organization as well as for mentoring and consensus building.
  • Exhibit an understanding of business drivers, management of change requirements, reliability processes and maintenance workflow.
  • Proven, basic proficiency in the following areas:
  • Industry codes and standards (e.g., API, ASME, ANSI)
  • Machinery (e.g., pumps, steam turbines, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, blowers, gearboxes, extruders, pelletizers)
  • Stationary Equipment (heat exchangers, pressure vessels, piping, flange make-up)
  • Predictive and preventive maintenance (PdM and PM) practices commonly applied to Machinery and Stationary Equipment
  • Machinery diagnostics, trouble-shooting and repair
  • Component failure analysis
  • Reliability engineering concepts
  • Reliability data analysis techniques
  • Project management process (PMP)
  • Application of computer software tools (SAP, Microsoft Office, AMS, Power BI)
  • Strong commitment to safety, a high level of personal integrity and dedication to conducting business in an ethical way.
