Overview / Responsibilities

Wood is currently recruiting for an Asset Life Extension Appraisal Project Manager with experience in the Oil & Gas Petrochemical Insdustry.

The Triton asset has potentially 10 to 15 years of value adding production left, however the magnitude of work required stay operational for this timeframe is currently unknown. The current view is that in order to keep Triton operational, additional work will be required across both the FPSO and subsea obsolescence, fabric maintenance and system equipment replacements. The proposal is therefore to undertake an appraisal study throughout 2H of 2019 and Q1 of 2020, to assess the likely work scopes as well as options for delivering this work. So assessing the 'what' and the 'how'. This in turn will make recommendations in support of forward plans for the asset, which may result in a change of strategy / increase of work to be done. The appraisal study will be treated as a project and will utilise the Dana Project Delivery Model (PDM). The purpose of this role is therefore to project manage the appraisal studies required to frame the likely forward scopes to keep Triton operational for 10 to 15 years. This will require the chosen person to create a studies team, scope the required work/studies, contract with companies, manage the associated study requirements, ensure that the scopes are delivered with clear recommendations for the 'what' and the 'how', and throughout this process, ensure that the various stakeholders and partners are kept informed and aligned. Close liaison with existing Dana teams and consultants is key to success of this work, as many of the studies will rely on input and possibly management from these existing teams. Depending on the candidate and the recommended / chosen way forward, the role may progress through to the next stages of delivery.
