Senior Flow Assurance Engineer


Our Client is currently recruiting for the position of Senior Flow Assurance Engineer, based in Aberdeen.

Job Purpose

As a member of the Front End & System Engineering team, the Senior Flow Assurance Engineer will be involved in several stages of the field development process, all the way to later project phases. The Senior Flow Assurance Engineer will work closely with Study Managers to define the best technical solution for the field.
The primary contribution will be through undertaking steady state and transient thermal and transient thermal and hydraulic flow simulations. The role will involve close interaction with other engineering disciplines internal, or sometimes external, such as subsurface/reservoir engineering, production chemistry, subsea pipelines and distribution and topsides process.
Study/project activities will be based mainly in the flow assurance arena but may also involve other process engineering activities or advising on the technical viability of a range of field development scenarios, based on analysis results and experience. Although the principal interactions will be with the UK teams, it is also possible that activities may involve interfacing with teams overseas.
In the context of day to day activities, the Senior Flow Assurance Engineer may be asked to steer and help the development of junior flow assurance personnel or sometimes contributes to internal initiatives within the wider Front End & System Engineering team.
