Electrical Technician - Decomissioning

E&I technician – Decommissioning and demolition


FPS South and North


FPS is a 100% INEOS-owned integrated oil and gas liquid transportation and processing system with a nominal capacity in excess of one million barrels per day serving the central area of the North Sea.

Oil and gas liquids from over 50 offshore fields and St Fergus flow through pipelines into FPS. FPS transports crude oil and gas liquids from offshore and onshore entry points, processes the liquids at Kinneil and redelivers to the customer Forties Blend crude oil at Hound Point and either Raw Gas or fractionated Gas Products at Grangemouth.

Job Purpose

This role forms part of the Decommissioning and Demolition Project Team that has been created to remove redundant onshore plant that has been replaced by facilities that are more modern, or have become obsolete because of the changing throughout and composition of oil and gas in FPS.

The role of E&I Technician is to lead all of the Electrical and Instrumentation activity involved with changing FPS facilities from live to a decommissioned state and ultimately make them fit for demolition. This includes the preparation and execution of all Electrical and Instrumentation isolations and abandonment in addition to working with the asset teams to ensure any alarm, shutdown and control functionality within the DCS system is modified or removed where appropriate.

This role is part of a small multi-discipline team where close working and support of other discipline technicians will be required in addition to the ability to direct contractor activity on site to support the decommissioning operations.

This role is a 37.5hrs/week, Monday to Friday dayshift position.
