About You

Holding a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Mechanical Engineering, the successful candidate must hold Chartership and RPEQ (or be within 6 months of obtaining RPEQ). The ideal candidate will also possess a significant degree of practical integrity experience – preferably within a high-pressure hydrocarbon operating environment.

It is also essential that you are able to demonstrate a working knowledge of:

  • Materials selection and the limitations thereof
  • Surface coating selection, application and the limitations thereof
  • The principles of risk management
  • The requirements, limitations, nuances and practical application of codes / standards associated with Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) programmes

In addition, prior experience using Meridium will be highly regarded.

The successful candidate must be willing and able to travel, as site visits to Curtis Island will be required approximately once a month. This requirement will lessen as the incumbent develops a familiarity with the asset and people.

As this role is primarily focused on supporting the 7.8MTPA GLNG plant, it will be highly plant focused and will suit candidates who not only excel in this area, but who are keen to deepen their knowledge further.
