Position: Process Engineering Specialist
Job Group: JG4
Purpose & Accountabilities:
Provide engineering domain expertise, consulting and leadership for the Process Engineering Software Products portfolio in Chemicals, Refining, Integrated Gas and Upstream. Responsible for defining
product requirements, developing computer code, documenting use/test cases and providing support & consultation for Process Flowsheeters and Process Models used in these Flowsheeters/other applications.
Design, specify, deploy, and sustain Real Time Optimization systems (e.g. ROMeo)- Design, specify,
deploy, and sustain asset monitoring systems (e.g. Smart Perform)- Interface RTOs with Advanced
Process Control (APC) and base layer control- Provide troubleshooting, and technical support for modelling and Real Time Optimization (RTO) systems.
Deliver Control and Operability Studies using Dynamic Simulation Tools like DYNSIM and UniSim Design.
Provide technical support, end-user consulting, trouble-shooting and training as required to maximize value of the deployed Tools/Methods, and Shell-licensed 3rd Party Process Engineering technical software.
Skills & Requirements
10+ years of direct professional experience delivering or supporting Process Engineering or Process Modelling and Optimization.
The applicant should preferably have BS or higher degree in Chemical Engineering. The applicant is expected to have a sound background in engineering, as well as significant knowledge in the fields of process technology, transport phenomena, mathematics, simulation, and technical computing.
This position requires skills in one or more of the following areas:
Process engineering – Sound understanding of unit operations, e.g. distillation, compressors, heat exchangers, fired heaters and reactors.
Process modelling – Ability to translate process engineering knowledge into appropriately-detailed models using commercial flow sheet simulation software (steady-state as well as dynamic). Balances level of detail vs. robustness and solution speed. Formulation, solution, validation, and analysis of constrained data reconciliation and economic optimization problems. Knowledge of equation-based modelling techniques is a plus.
Process control – Sound understanding of base layer and advanced process control and the impact of control system structure and status on the behaviour of process units.
Proven record of delivering process engineering technical services and support to end-users. Understanding of technical software development, from concept through requirements setting, design and build.
Proficiency in Steady-State modelling and Real-Time Optimization using one or more of PRO/II – PROMOTE, Aspen Engineering Suite, Unisim Design, ROMeo / ARPM Technology.
Proficiency in Dynamic modelling using UniSim Design and/or DYNSIM
