We are seeking a Corrosion Engineer to join the Southern Area Technical Support Division (SATSD) of SAOO Technical Support Department.

SATSD is responsible for providing technical support and engineering consultation that leverage cutting-edge technologies and IR4.0 solutions to ensure safe, efficient, profitable and environmentally-friendly operations.

The corrosion engineer primary role is to perform integrity and corrosion analysis studies to assess current challenges and develop a mitigation plan by implementing cost effective solutions and deployment of latest technologies in this field.

Duties & Responsibilities

You will be required to perform the following:

  • Perform periodical analytical study of corrosion assessment findings to overcome challenging inspection programs
  • Deploy Technologies related to corrosion issues and non-metallic deployment.
  • Perform study for pipelines corrosion control improvements
  • Develop Pipeline Integrity Plans (PIP) aligned with the organization integrity performance objectives, assigning responsibilities, and timeframes for the responsible stakeholder.
  • Develop annual condition assessment schedule in line with the PIP recommendations.
  • Review PIP trends and initiate detailed engineering studies accordingly (e.g. increase in internal corrosion features, encroachment to pipelines, low quality of ILI reports, failure investigations, etc.)
  • Update the PIP based on the schedule T&I inspection and MOC. 
  • Ensure IOW exceedances are addressed by the relevant process owners and track recommendations.
  • Facilitate the investigation of failure to pipeline and deploy lesson learned from RCA to the system to avoid reoccurrence to the rest of pipelines.
  • Coordinate the updating of pipeline integrity risk register and ensure timely review upon occurrence of incidents in industry or other similar facilities to reflect that in the risk register and identify the applicable pipelines.
