The Instrument Engineer is responsible for providing knowledge of instrumentation equipment and systems for the plant operations to ensure that optimum production of LNG and associated hydrocarbon products is safely achieved. Support Every Person Safe Every Day concepts and culture.
Role and Responsibilities
Participate in teams carrying out debottlenecking activities or general plant studies as required (typically these teams are made up of process, instrumentation, and controls engineers with operations and maintenance personnel involved).
Monitor technology changes and updates of equipment in instrumentation field. Work closely with operations and maintenance personnel to ensure plant instrumentation systems are modernized, as such programs can be justified on a cost effective basis. In cooperation with process engineering and operations, work towards the optimization of plant operations, maximizing plant product production (LNG, LPGs, Condensate, Domestic Gas) from available plant feed stock at minimum expenditure of plant resources (equipment, manpower, capital). Work with the operations group to execute the conclusions of these studies.
Develop/utilize monitoring program for plant instrumentation to ensure equipment is performing as designed.
Apply safety concepts: active participant in promoting a safety culture and participating in safety initiatives Search and apply safety lessons learned.
Mentor national instrument engineering staff. Ensure that the national instrument engineers receive adequate training and guidance to assume a lead instrument engineer position within a specified timeframe.
