• Lead the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction efforts for the topsides • Responsible for the planning, design, specification development and procurement of the topsides equipment for the project • Designs/ coordinates FPSO FEED contractor work as related to topsides design. • Assures the topside system is safe, operable, maintainable, cost-effective, constructible, reliable and meets design intent • Provides expertise for offshore systems, including topside design, constructability, operability and reliability • Participates in discipline-related workshops (i.e. cost and schedule, topsides, operations, HES/HAZOP/HAZID etc.), and attends meetings with outside engineering consultants. • Supervises technical staff in engineering and design, where required • Ensures that the topsides design reflects safety and reliability standards • Fosters strong collaboration with Subsurface, Operations, Drilling, and Subsea groups • Supports and helps build culture of value creation through risk management and mitigation planning; • Participates and supports development and maintenance of a strong Incident & Injury free culture throughout the project and amongst all key stakeholders
BS required
10 to 15 years offshore project experience and 5+ years supervisory experience
Key Job Responsibilities: • Leads development of all aspects of the specification, design, construction, integration, installation and pre-commissioning of the topsides equipment • Coordinates and executes Pre-FEED and FEED scope of work for topsides equipment, including equipment RFQ tender packages, review, evaluation and award of bids. TVEX intends to utilize contractor support of procurement, but purchase on paper with terms and conditions. • Reviews design deliverables from contractors to ensure that the designs meet Project and Company technical specifications, business objectives, and safety, reliability, and operability requirements. • Assists the Engineering Manager with select Pre-FEED and FEED planning and execution activities. • Coordinate the work of topsides Electrical Engineer and topsides Intrumentation Engineer. TVEX expects these positions to be filled with part time support. • Interface with key stakeholders to ensure successful transition of the project to the BU. Since Tahiti is an operated asset, the topsides lead will have considerable interface with the GOMBU operations groups (FE and Ops) to support smooth construction, commissioning, and handover with minimal interruption to operations. • TVEX does not expect the additional production from the TVEX wellls will exceed the nameplate capacity of the topsides process stream, which will limit the amount of topsides scope for the project. Nonetheless, the topsides lead must verify this, and plan for possible installation of risers, umbilicals, utilities to support a new subsea Master Control Station, a possible new or expanded Hydraulic Power Unit, etc. Recent experience with Blind Faith 2 (similat GOMBU subsea tie back) indicates that topsides scope can quickly expand to affect 50+ P&ID's.
