Permanent Contract

Contractual hours



This senior position within the integrity team has responsibility to manage both the Pipeline Integrity Team and the Corrosion and Materials Team. This is a critical role within the Integrity team with responsibility for communicating with the wider business, to be alert to production events which may impact integrity of the plant and to bring together results from the two teams to inform integrity management strategies to allow safe continued operation of the plant.

The pipelines integrity team is responsible for managing the SNS network of 2,500km of onshore and offshore pipelines, subsea and topside sections. This includes prescribing suitable inspection plans, reviewing inspection findings and prescribing appropriate repair and future management strategies to ensure SNS pipelines remain fit for use for Perenco UK. Additionally they are also responsible for liaison with the regulators to ensure compliance with in service pipeline management and also legislation compliance with projects and pipeline changes.

The Corrosion & Materials team is responsible for review and analysis of process chemistry and adjusting corrosion inhibition strategies for SNS pipelines and topside pressure systems. The team manages cathodic protection systems, corrosion coupons, sand monitors and probes to further inform corrosion risk predictions and inspection strategies. Additional key responsibilities include pipeline life prediction, erosion management, welding, process change reviews and their impact on erosion and corrosion, project material selection and production and process chemistry. The team performs failure investigation work across all disciplines within the business to determine root cause of component, process and system failures to avoid repeat failures in future and improve production reliability.

Whilst this role is office based there will be a requirement to travel offshore periodically.
