The Company:
Our Client is a Leading Global Operator in the Oil and Gas Industry.

The Role:
Subsea Project Engineer required for a High Pressure (HP) gas-condensate development, with a subsea production system comprising subsea trees and manifolds to be installed in water depths ranging from approximately 70m to approximately 540m.

The wells and subsea manifolds (incorporating a HIPPS) making up each cluster are tied back via looped carbon steel flowlines to the fixed SDB-PR Processing platform. Each production flowline incorporates a Direct Electrical Heating System (DEH) for hydrate management. Two production control umbilicals per cluster are tied into the fixed SDB-QU Quarters and Utilities platform. Both platforms are located in approximately 95m water depth and are bridge-linked.

Contractor is responsible for supplying elements of the Subsea Production System including the connectors and corresponding inboard hubs for the multibore well jumpers, the monobore flowline jumpers and the Main Umbilical Termination Assemblies (as opposed to FTP umbilicals), together with the ancillary subsea and surface tooling and testing interfaces . These will be implemented using the new connection system, whose principal benefits include:

• Close tolerance stack up between support structure metrology interface and inboard hub
• Integrated insulation design
• Light and ‘simple’ connection tooling

The SD2 Connection System discipline engineer will be responsible for monitoring, reviewing and supporting the day-to-day engineering of the connection system and ancillary tooling, reporting to GSH engineering and SD2 project and supported by the GSH Connection System Specialist.

The task is anticipated to follow from the FEED (completed) through detailed design, interface engineering, fabrication, assembly, single unit FAT, integration (into host structures, spools and umbilicals), EFAT and SIT of integrated units, installation engineering, installation and pre-commissioning.

The key activities for the Connection System Engineer to facilitate are:
• To work closely with contractor group, Project team, GSH Connection System Specialist and URF contractors during the detailed design of the connection system components to ensure that the designs meet Contract specifications, are safe, functional, achieve high integrity and reliablility.
• Participation in the necessary design assurance activities
• Interface engineering with system engineering, connection system integrators (spool, structure and umbilical designers), installation contractor(s)
• Identification of technical issues/risks and resourcing constraints arising within contractor engineering activities
• Identification of contractor's design aspects requiring specialist client or 3rd party verification (e.g. FEA, materials and welding)
• Identification of deviations to Contract specifications, design codes and client's ETPs
• To review contractor's connection system documents/drawings and collate comments from GSH Engineering, Project engineering and delivery teams
• To review procedures for integrated connection systems; (e.g. structures FAT, EFAT and SITs, Installation Procedures)
• Support and participate in vendor Pre Production Meetings (PPM)
• Monitor equipment manufacture and support resolution of QNs and NCRs
• Ensure that fabrication, assembly and FAT testing of connection system components is proceeding as client/contractor intent
• To liase with client site teams and support integration activities (typically EFAT and SIT) as required, reviewing NCRs etc. as they arise
• To support client's Commissioning teams during Offshore installation and pre-commissioning activities

Physical Location:
A key requirement is to build a close and open working relationship with contractor's engineers such that challenges are identified early and addressed efficiently. Experience has shown that this requires significant face-to-face contact with the contractors engineers. The Engineer will also need to work closely with client QA engineers.

For this reason, although the Connection System Engineer will be based at the project office (currently Staines), they will need to spend significant time (circa 50%) in contractor's offices, as well as visiting Norwegian and UK equipment vendors.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
• Knowledge Subsea Connection Systems
• Deep technical understanding of Industry practices associated with Subsea Diverless Connection Systems. Specifically this will include:
o API Specification 6A Wellhead and Tree Equipment
o API 17D Specification for Subsea Wellhead and Christmas Tree Equipment.
o ASME 31.8 - Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems
o ASME 31.3 – Process Piping
o ASME BPVC Section VIII-2 - Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels - Division 2 Alternative Rules
o ISO 13628-8 ROV Interfaces on SPS.
• Experience of working with Norwegian and UK equipment vendors
