Primary: Provide technical/operational guidance to Operational/Safety/Environmental groups with operational troubleshooting/optimization work on existing plants.
Secondary: Assist the Commercial/Marketing groups with asset optimization leading to additional volumes with acceptable margin.
The asset engineer will need to provide technical expertise and support that may or may not lead to a physical item being constructed. The Asset Engineer will need to provide project evaluation, problem resolution, and provide technical support to ensure third party understanding of the operation.
Key activities include but are not limited to providing technical support to the operations team to ensure the plant is being operated within proper set points (Temperature, Pressure, Flow, Level), identify transient conditions that affect total on-line performance and help make operation changes to mitigate those conditions.
Project involvement can vary from project oversight to leading preliminary design/cost estimating efforts; although the intent is to limit the Asset Engineer’s project involvement on large projects to be a knowledge resource.
Day to Day Responsibilities:
Asset Engineers review current operating parameters and determine plant bottlenecks which are restricting gas throughput. Additionally, AE’s need to be familiar with plant equipment such as pumps, liquid handling equipment such as liquid/gas separators, amine treaters, glycol dehydration systems, molecular sieve equipment, cryogenic process, compression, pumps, etc.
As a resource to Operations, the Asset Engineer helps make sure all Safety, Regulatory, Industry and Codes, Standards and Requirements are incorporated/documented, serves as an information resource to other groups and provides Commercial advice on how new gas production will affect current plant conditions.
Support the Asset Manager and Supervisors with Safe and Environmentally Compliant Operations that are economically optimized. Insure all phases of any work comply with industry requirements
