Inspection Engineer

Purpose:

IE will provide inspection and integrity management support to UKCS operated oil & gas
assets ensuring compliance with corporate, regulatory, operational and commercial
requirements.

Key responsibilities:

  • Implementation and maintains asset integrity inspection and
    monitoring plans in support of Inspection/integrity management
    for all above water facilities on nominated asset(s).
  • Provides discipline input to Corrosion Risk Assessment reviews
    for pipework and vessels and participates in peer review.
  • Develops inspection work packs for pipework and vessels in
    accordance with RBI inspection plans and Corrosion Risk
    Assessments.
  • Manages and ensures the efficient and safe delivery of all ‘on site’
    above water inspection/ integrity activities.
  • Provides discipline input to Corrosion Management Team
    (Expert Group) meetings.
  • Prepares regular statements on the progress of inspection scopes
    of nominated asset(s).
  • Maintains anomaly database and ensures all defects are subject
    to appropriate engineering evaluation, failure analysis and fitness
    for purpose assessment with identification of remedial and
    recommended follow up action.
  • Maintains currency of relevant inspection management database(s)
    and other relevant engineering information in support of inspection
    e.g. isometric drawings.
  • Supervises and manages inspection activity e.g. topside non
    destructive inspection activity including preparation of work
    schedules, resource levelling/sharing with other assets.
  • Ensures Technical Compliance in accordance with Chevron
    Management Standards, Safety Management System and all
    relevant Statutory Instruments, Codes, Regulations, Practice Notes,
    Safety Notices and Flashes.
  • Ensures HSE and IVB audit findings relating to technical integrity
    are appropriately followed up.
  • Ensures inspection isometrics are maintained and remain accurate.
  • Undertakes routine offshore visits, performs safety and technical
    site audits, etc.

Qualifications:

Essential:

  • HNC/HND or equivalent technical qualification in a relevant
    engineering discipline or significant experience in a similar role.

Preferred:

  • Degree or equivalent professional qualification in a relevant
    engineering discipline e.g. API 570 API 510.
  • An appropriate engineering council registration or working towards.
  • Current Offshore Medical and Survival Certificate.

Experience/Knowledge Required:

Essential:

  • Previous experience in a similar engineering position in the oil and
    gas industry.
  • Ability to read and interpret commonly used engineering drawings
    and data sets used in support of above water inspection activities
    e.g. piping isometrics, vessel general arrangements, piping and
    instrumentation diagrams, process flow diagrams, piping schedules.
  • Awareness of the uses and limitations of commonly applied non
    destructive examination techniques applied in support of above
    water inspection activities e.g. magnetic particle inspection,
    ultrasonic wall thickness measurement, radiography techniques.
  • Awareness of the uses and limitations of specialist non destructive
    examination techniques applied in support of above water inspection
    and monitoring programmes e.g. pulsed eddy current, thermography,
    time of flight diffraction.
  • Working knowledge of inspection management database systems
    e.g. ACET, COABIS.
  • Working knowledge in CMMS (MAXIMO,SAP or similar).
  • Awareness of the key degradation mechanisms associated with
    the deterioration of offshore production facilities e.g. internal corrosion,
    external corrosion, fatigue.
  • Awareness of inputs, outputs and processes followed in the delivery
    of a corrosion risk assessment methodology.
  • Awareness of piping and vessel design codes and the application
    of same to fitness for purpose assessment e.g. ASME VIII, PD5500,
    ASME B31.3.

Preferred:

  • Awareness of paint coat specifications and associated applications.
  • Ability to apply simple fitness for purpose assessments for piping defects.
  • Ability to manage and supervise sub-contracted organisations and
    personnel, manage budget and plans.
  • Working knowledge of temporary repair techniques available for
    offshore process and utility piping and vessel systems e.g. box clamps,
    composite repairs.
  • Detailed knowledge of the uses and limitations of commonly applied
    non destructive examination techniques applied in support of above
    water inspection activities e.g. magnetic particle inspection, ultrasonic
    wall thickness measurement, radiography techniques.
  • Awareness of key legislation and regulatory framework applicable to
    offshore regime with an understanding of major accident hazards,
    performance standards, assurance and verification activities.
