The Role:
Schedule: either 5/40 or 9/80

Project development
In June 2016, our client took the final investment decision to build a major petrochemicals plant near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. The plant will consist of an ethylene cracker with a polyethylene derivatives unit.

In November 2017, they announced the completion of the site's early works program and beginning of the main construction phase. Commercial production is estimated to begin early next decade.
The plant will use low-cost ethane from shale gas producers in the Marcellus and Utica basins to produce 1.6 million tonnes of polyethylene each year. Polyethylene is used in many everyday products, from food packaging and containers to automotive components.

The facility will be built on the banks of the Ohio River in Potter Township, Beaver County, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) north-west of Pittsburgh.

The plant is located close to both its source of ethane and its customer base. More than 70% of North American polyethylene customers are within a 1,100 kilometre (700-mile) radius of Pittsburgh. The plant's Pennsylvania location will provide our client with a competitive advantage over Gulf Coast operators while providing customers with a shorter, more dependable supply chain.

Environment and society
The project will bring new growth and jobs to the region, with up to 6,000 construction workers involved in building the new facility and an expected 600 permanent employees when completed.

* Demonstrated use of IT systems to manage performance
* He or she must be highly self-motivated and be prepared to spend long working hours including weekends on the construction site
