Job Information

Job Description:

Responsibilities for this position may include but are not limited to:

  • Technical Safety is an engineering specialty providing technical leadership and applying strong engineering knowledge/broad experience to recognize and identify hazards, assess risk, and develop mitigation strategies.
  • The discipline is accountable for applying engineering design principles to a managed level of risk for operating facilities and capital projects.
  • Practitioners are responsible for cross functional interface management and/or managing cross-discipline facilities engineers.

Experience and personal & Technical Skills:

  • Demonstrated knowledge of equipment failure modes and safeguards (engineered and administrative) to prevent ultimate consequences.
  • Coordinate the conduction of consequence modeling for fire, blast and toxic releases utilizing proprietary software.
  • Facilitate technical risk assessments utilizing appropriate methodologies (e.g., Process Hazard Analyses (PHAs), Quantitative Risk Assessments, etc.).
  • Act as facilitator on more complex Process Safety related incident investigations.
  • Approve design specifications and lead design or modification of complex Fire Protection systems.
  • Understanding of qualitative risk assessments, quantitative risk assessments, and/or other systems managing process hazards with ability to influence design and operations in all lifecycle phases.
  • Update of relevant industry codes and CES related to Technical Safety.
  • Coordinate and assess during the engineering phase the introduction of safeguards for reducing the risk level to acceptable.
  • Clear understanding of API Standards related with technical safety and process safety: API 14C, API 14J, API 521, API 520, API 754, API 751, API 752, API 12J
  • Experience on defining safety and process safety safeguards during O&G surface processing facilities design.
  • Sponsor for inherent safer design from early phases, managing the balance cost risk.
  • Awareness of industry codes and company standards and specifications related to the design, fabrication, operation, inspection, and testing of equipment.
  • Establish the design criteria and performance standards for engineered safeguards related to applicable high consequence scenarios
  • Process Risk Engineering includes explosion, fire and toxic release modeling, event tree and fault tree analysis, building siting, quantitative risk analysis.
  • Fire Protection Engineering includes passive and active fire protections system designs, gas detection, plot plan designs (layout, spacing, drainage), engineering designs to mitigate spread of fire.
  • Process Safety Engineering includes qualitative risk assessments (PHA), technical safety reviews (functional reviews, design assurance, technical readiness reviews), operations support, and technical auditing.

Required Qualifications:

  • B.S. degree in Process, Mechanical, Instrument, or Process Safety Engineering with a minimum of 10 years of experience in Technical Safety Engineering for O&G Upstream projects.
  • Fluent with Technical Safety design
  • Fluent with Inherent safe design.
  • Fluent in Process Safety Management
  • English speaking and writing skills.
  • Leadership skills demonstrated by leading roles with multidisciplinary teams.
