We are seeking a Control System and Instrument Engineer to join the Technical Support Unit of the East West Pipeline Department.
The Technical Support Unit is responsible for providing assistance in engineering analysis, development, design, and control of assigned projects within any one of the recognized engineering fields.
Your primary role is to perform the related gas turbine/compressor control and instrument tasks. This will include system troubleshooting, logic modification, and developing engineering procedures to enhance the system operability, efficiency, and safety in compliance with the applicable international codes and engineering standards. You will also have training, knowledge, and ability in your engineering specialty and a working knowledge of related engineering fields.
As the successful candidate, you will hold a bachelor's degree in Electronic & Instrumentation Engineering or Control System Engineering from a recognized and approved program.
You will have a minimum of 9 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, including experience on gas compressor/turbine control system with a recommendation of the General Electric (GE) product Mark IVe and MarkIVeS, as well as a thorough knowledge of engineering practices, and economic principles, calculation methods, design details, international codes, and engineering standards and specifications.
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Capable planning, preparation, and execution of startup and commissioning activities for turbine controls such as gas turbine control application and the startup and commissioning of compressor control systems.

Strive to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction in all transactions and relationships.
Prepare functional logic descriptions, in English text form, extracting the functional requirements from Process & instrument Diagrams (P&IDs), system descriptions, component specifications, and other plant design documents to define the objectives of control system modifications, noting the reason for the logic change and the basis for making required changes.
Review operational data from the affected GTs or other similar frame applications to identify the current operating characteristics that will be used as a benchmark for the development of control system enhancements, utilizing PI, Excel, or other data acquisition software.
Prepare design documents, specifications, work procedures, checklists, validation or test plans, and as-built drawings per our procedures that are required to achieve the operational improvements.
Provide diagnostic support for the resolution of issues by performing root cause analysis and recommending improvements to control system logic or hardware, including HMIs, CPUs, software, instruments, and actuators.
Support communications with control system engineers to obtain consensus on logic and hardware modifications and to promote unified control system applications.
Make suggestions for product and service improvements that will increase customer satisfaction with our products and services.
Support ISO 9001 audits and compliance efforts, and, where possible, and enhance the documentation.
Support the development and training of plant OMEs helping to operate and maintain the equipment reliably and safely.
