The Bengaluru Technology Center Process Engineering Group is building a world class team of Process Engineers, with demonstrated design/operations experience and technical/business judgment capabilities, to support all phases of the Facility Lifecycle:

  • Conceptual Engineering (Concept Selection, Preliminary Front End Engineering Design [Pre-FEED])
  • Project Execution (FEED and Detailed Design/EPC, Start-up)
  • Operations (Troubleshooting, Debottlenecking, Optimization)

Successful candidates will lead/be part of a team supporting a wide variety of projects and/or operating facilities, ranging from: small brownfield projects to major capital projects, greenfield to brownfield, onshore to offshore, sweet to sour designs, conventional oil and gas to LNG and downstream Refining and Chemicals.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

Process Engineers will be responsible for the following:

  • Conceptual Engineering:

*Executing Facility Concept Selection and Pre-FEED

 Capable of leading capital project development or design efforts through the company Capital Project System

 Leading or as part of an integrated team, develop scope definition for various facility concepts and analyzing/recommending results to maximise business value. Ensure full alignment of recommended scope with Business Teams, Manufacturing Site/Operations, Process Technology Specialists and Engineering Specialists providing design input to cost estimating models.**

*Develop required deliverables: Process Simulation models, Equipment Lists, Flow Diagrams (Block, Process, Utility), Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs), Equipment Data Sheets, Layouts, Design Philosophies, Heat & Material Balances, Design Basis documentation, Optimization/Cost Reduction studies, Benchmarking facility design against previous projects / operating facilities

*Provide mentoring, oversight and perform technical reviews of the work of less experienced process designers, ensuring delivery of quality and capital efficiency while meeting schedule requirements

  • Engineering Execution:

*Providing Engineering Surveillance of Facilities/Process Engineering deliverables required for FEED and Detailed Design/EPC execution.

Ensuring compliance with job specification, design methods and safety factors are correctly applied in the design.

 Providing operability reviews for start up, normal, turndown, and shutdown modes.

 Establishing design basis for abnormal operating conditions

  • Development and review of Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs), heat and material balances (H&MBs), Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) for process safety and operability considerations. Selection and specification of process and process control components

*Participate/lead design reviews, Risk Assessments, HAZOPs, vendor bid evaluations, and project readiness reviews

*Development of the schedule, recommended deliverables, and labor hour estimate for process engineering. Measurement and reporting of physical progress.

*Participate in planning and work allocation process for the process design discipline

*Develop planning documentation for internal company reviews for funding recommendations

  • Operations Support:

*Providing onsite and remote support to operating facilities to troubleshoot equipment/processes and debottlenecking for increased production

 Troubleshooting includes: heat exchangers, oil and gas separators, acid gas treatment units, produced water treatment units, process control systems, etc.

*Analysis of plant operating data (PI / XHQ) to support production optimization

Job Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in Chemical Engineering, with GPA 7.0 or above
  • Minimum of 8 years of process engineering experience in the oil and gas industry
  • Technical

*Strong background in oil and gas production facilities or Refining and Chemical facilities, with demonstrated experience in some of the following process areas, across a substantial portion of the full Facility Lifecycle:

 Conventional Onshore and Offshore Oil and Gas

 LNG (Regasification and Liquefaction)

 Sour Oil and Gas Treatment

 NGL recovery

 Produced Water Treatment

 Associated Utilities and Safety Systems

 Refining and Chemical Process Technologies / unit design / operations

 Owner / site / manufacturing plant experience preferred

*Thorough knowledge/expert judgment in the selection and application of process and utilities systems in the process areas listed above

*Broad understanding of safety aspects in design (API 14C/J recommended practices, relief and blowdown, passive and active fire protection, etc.)

*Demonstrated experience in Conceptual Engineering design workflow creation and execution, including IT / data management

*Ability to design new process equipment and rate existing process equipment to determine if it is suitable for modified operating parameters.

*Working capabilities in some of the following programs and data flows between them:

 AspenTech Engineering Suite including HYSYS, Aspen Basic Engineering, Aspen Capital Cost Estimator

 Siemens COMOS

 AVEVA Engineering Suite (Front End Engineering through 3D Modeling)

 Intergraph / Hexagon Engineering Suite

 PRO-II

 Other similar types of commercially available engineering suites

  • Non-Technical

*Leadership directing work execution and work flow improvements

*Demonstrated experience mentoring junior process engineers

*A highly motivated team player with excellent oral and written communication skills

*Proficient in Microsoft Office suite of software programs

*Strong organizational, planning/coordination, interface, and technical judgment skills.

*Ability to adapt to tight deadlines, heavy workloads, and frequent changes in priorities.

*Ability to interface with non-Engineering disciplines to achieve common objectives

*Willing and able to travel internationally as required
