Target Emission Services (TARGET) is a leading fugitive emission management service provider. We provide a full range of Fugitive Emission Management services to the Energy and Petrochemical Industries. We specialize in providing our clients with facility inspections that meet EPA Subpart W requirements (40 CFR Part 98, Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases: Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems). In addition to Subpart W, we specialize in EPA Subpart VV, VVa, KKK, OOOO, and OOOOa (40 CFR Part 60, Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources). Our experience and innovative technologies provide efficient detection and accurate measurement of hydrocarbon fugitive emissions. We help our clients to reduce emissions, improve health and safety, maximize profits and maintain regulatory compliance.
TARGET specializes in the use of infrared thermal (optical) imaging video cameras to locate hydrocarbon gas emissions. Optical emission detection is a relatively new technology that has been developed to provide rapid, accurate and safe identification of fugitive gas emissions. This technology enables the operator to "see" emissions of hydrocarbon gas (methane, propane, butane, aromatics, etc) that are normally invisible.
TARGET currently has an opportunity for a Fugitive Emission (FE) Technician. The successful candidate will work both independently as part of a Fugitive Emission Assessment Team. These teams are responsible for performing inspections on various types of facilities in the Oil and Gas Industry to identify and quantify hydrocarbon gas leaks and vents. A normal technician schedule averages 180 total days of work per year (including travel). This position is 100% field work with the opportunity to grow with the company. If the successful candidate is able to help grow the workload in the Oklahoma City area, field work will be reduced and there will be opportunity to fill the role of District Manager as needed.
This position was created out of need to service EPA Subpart OOOOa and Subpart W at natural gas compressor stations located around Oklahoma City. The successful candidate lives in or near Oklahoma City or is willing to relocate to this area. Some work will be able to be done commuting to compressor stations (within about 1 hour from Oklahoma City) and some will require a 1 or more nights stay in a hotel (per diem will be provided in these cases).
IDEAL CANDIDATES will have an intimate understanding of oil and gas field operations (experience working in an O&G facility would be a definite asset) and have experience in performing hydrocarbon fugitive emission and /or leak detection projects. Our US offices are located in Houston, TX and Pittsburgh, PA; however, this opportunity is a 100% field position and will require extensive travel throughout the USA. This position will focus on our clients in the USA (EPA Subpart VV, VVa, KKK, OOOO, OOOOa, and W compliance) but may also require occasional travel to work on projects in Canada or other international locations. The FE Technician will report to the FE Team Lead. The successful candidate will be required to take a number of safety training courses prior to initiating any field activities (CPR/1St Aid, H2S Alive, WHIMIS/TDG, Fall Protection etc.). Any candidates that already have valid training tickets will be given preference. This position includes a comprehensive safety and technical training program (both field and office based). This position offers a unique opportunity to join a successful Environmental Engineering firm and work with a industry leading technologies used to detect and measure methane gas emissions.
As we are a fast growing company, a successful candidate has opportunities to advance into a Team Lead or Coordinator/Project Manager positions.
