The Role:
Main Function

The subsea pipeline engineer is responsible for:
• technical assurance for the engineering and design of the subsea pipeline bundle and spools for the project
• technical integration of the project with existing subsea assets and platforms.
• technical interface coordination with the subsea structural / towhead engineer and the controls project engineer to assure equipment integration into the subsea pipeline bundle design and fabrication.


The Development Pipeline Engineer is required to have technical expertise and experience in:
• pipeline bundle and tie-in spool engineering and design
• pipeline bundle and tie-in spool fabrication, testing, and installation
• expertise in dynamic stress analysis (installation and operational), buoyancy control, and general pipeline line sizing calculations
• general crossing engineering and design requirements
• coordination and integration of flow assurance data into the pipeline engineering and design
• pipeline bundle and tie-in spool testing and pre-commissioning

The Development Project Engineer should be familiar with general requirements for:
• manifold / towhead engineering and design
• operations start-up, commissioning, and handover
• technical specifications for and procurement of major subsea pipe and valves
• seabed metrology for subsea tie-ins
• offshore installation vessel operations
• HAZOP for subsea systems
• Rock dumping operations, subsea piling operations
• Installation vessel fit-for-purpose requirements
• Installation and as-built survey requirements

General Responsibility

• Develop and maintain the pipeline bundle and tie-in spools element of the basis of design through detailed engineering, fabrication, installation, testing and pre-commissioning.
• Ensure that production operations requirements are reflected in all design, including diver access and IRM operations.
• Oversee and provide guidance to the EPIC contractor(s) on the design of the pipeline bundle and tie-in spools.
• Ensure that all design cases for the pipeline bundle and tie-in spools are considered, including but not limited to, fabrication, launch, tow, installation, in-place and accidental conditions.
• Review the selection of coating and insulation systems, as well as design.
• Support HAZOP work with pipeline technical input.
• Assist the Project Engineering Manager with pipeline risk identification and offer options during design for pipeline and tie-in spool risk mitigation.
