The NL part of the southern North Sea including the Den Helder plant, is part of Shell's Onegas asset, organizationally it is part of the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM, UPO/T). The NAM consists of three assets: two onshore assets, ('Groningen' and 'Land') and the offshore asset 'Onegas'. These assets are a critical Heartland for Shell production, with scope for field extension projects and infill / near-field opportunities.
The offshore One Gas asset operates some 90 fields across the Southern North Sea, both in NL (Onegas East) and UK (Onegas West).
We are currently looking for a Senior Process Engineer / Technologist for our Den Helder plant.
What is the role about?
The main goals of this position are to provide discipline expertise, day-to-day production and facility optimization support, as well as delivery of the HEMP improvement plan. The senior technologist will be part of and communicate directly with the Plant Leadership Team on the larger challenges facing the DHR plant.
You will be part of a team of ca 9 process engineers forming part of a wider team of ca 20 process engineers/technologist embedded in the asset's 6 production units.
The Senior Process Technologist for the Den Helder Plant in the North of the Netherlands is an interesting position for an experienced engineer who enjoys being at the center of many different initiatives, ranging from operations support and process safety to production optimization.
At the Den Helder plant gas coming from NAM and third-party platforms offshore is treated. It is expected that in the near future the Den Helder plant will undergo modifications to make it suitable for the future (e.g. integration of different gas streams).
At the same time Den Helder is an obvious evacuation route for future offshore sequestration of CO2, unlocking a large sink in the offshore fields that are close to abandonment. This means that there will also be opportunities to get involved in project execution and longer term strategic studies.
