Engineering is executed via subcontract with architect engineering firms specializing in the project industry and market. Our in-house engineering activities serve as preliminary engineering design bases and as critical oversight of the subcontracted engineering firms. This role will be a part of our in-house engineering team.

POSITION SUMMARY:

The Process Engineer primarily applies principles, knowledge, and practices of process engineering for timely identification, analysis, and resolution of process related issues during project development, FEL engineering, and detailed design stages of projects. The Process Engineer shall be responsible for the direct oversight of the execution of process engineering and design by our engineering subcontractor. Process Engineer shall have extensive knowledge of all codes and standards in the refinery and process industries including API and PIP. Support the Engineering Manager in the areas of subcontractor management, development of project reports, and development of internal project budgets. Process Engineer shall also be capable of developing preliminary engineering documents to support our bid phase and contract development efforts.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES:
