    Company Description

    Shell is a global leader in power, energy, and gas technology and is working to meet increasing energy demand and supply challenges by delivering smarter products and cleaner energy, infrastructure, and by developing new energy sources while addressing the impact on the environment. Malaysia is one of Shell's heartlands. The history of Royal Dutch Shell in Malaysia started more than 125 years. Today, Shell maintains a strong multi-faceted presence in the country through our longer-term investments, innovation-sharing, and impact to local communities. We helped pioneer Malaysia's oil and gas industry and fuelled its growth. We discovered Malaysia's first oil onshore, then took the industry offshore, and most recently into the technically-challenging depths of Deepwater. Shell's strong retail network fuels the journeys of millions of Malaysian motorists every day. In fact, Shell is even able to offer one of the most differentiated fuel and lubricant products, some of which were pioneered right here in the country. We fuelled the ambitions of Malaysians: whether the generations of retail business partners; thousands of Shell scholars over the years; young entrepreneurs from our LiveWire programme; or Shell staff and alumni who are Malaysian luminaries today. Shell continues to be one of the top employers in Malaysia with thousands employed in our upstream, midstream and downstream businesses, as well as in our service and support functions.


    Experience and Qualifications Required

  • The incumbent requires at least 8 years' experience in the upstream oil and gas business with at least 5 years' experience in mechanical rotating equipment maintenance with the expectation of having performed equipment repair and overhauls, change-outs and alignment.
  • Demonstrable competence as a practising mechanical rotating equipment engineer, with a minimum of a bachelor degree qualification and Chartered status membership or equivalent of a recognized national or international professional mechanical engineering body or institution.
  • Good understanding of mechanical rotating equipment engineering design, selection and maintenance requirements.
  • Good working knowledge of process engineering, process controls, electrical, and MCI (materials, corrosion and inspection), with respect to upstream oil and gas rotating equipment applications. Knowledge of reliability techniques (RCA methodologies, RCM tools etc.) is also advantageous.
  • Good understanding of risks and ALARP principles. Demonstratable ability to perform risk assessments.
  • Strong communication (English) and interpersonal skills, leadership and the ability to influence others. Able to write concise technical reports, specifications and procedures or edit/review those prepared by others.
  • Computer literate and skilled in the use of business software applications such as Microsoft Office, SAP and PI. Ability to use technical software such as Woodward GAP, Woodward Control Assistant, RS Logix 5000 and Bentley Nevada System 1 would be an advantage.
  • Willing and medically fit to travel to and from, and stay at remote locations (i.e. offshore platforms, construction barges, work boats etc.) for periods exceeding 14 days on an as-required basis, travelling by helicopter or crew boat
