Job Description:


Basic Function

The Instrument and Electrical (I&E) Maintenance Engineer is experienced and knowledgeable in the design and maintenance of instrumentation, distributed control systems (DCS), programmable logic controllers (PLC) and medium voltage electrical systems. The role is part of the Reliability Group supporting continuous improvement of asset availability and plant performance at the Bayport Polymers Plant in Pasadena, TX. Working in a multi-disciplinary, cross-functional environment, it carries responsibility for implementing and continuously improving the Instrument and Electrical asset maintenance strategy. The position interacts with other technical groups on site (e.g., Process Engineering, Maintenance, Operations and Capital Projects), LyondellBasell Technical Networks and Global Processes, suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) as-needed to improve asset availability and life cycle cost performance. This is a direct hire position with competitive base salary, bonus, 401K matching, generous benefits package, pension plan and employee discounts.

Roles & Responsibilities

  • Systematically develop, monitor and continuously improve an Instrument and Electrical asset maintenance strategy that ensures assets will function as required and realize value throughout their life cycles. Task types include:
    • Predictive Maintenance or PdM (e.g., AMS, PdMA)
    • Preventive Maintenance or PM (e.g., instrument calibration, control valve overhauls)
    • Failure-finding (e.g., proof-testing of safety-instrumented systems)
    • Corrective Maintenance (e.g., replacement work instructions, repair plans)
    • Ensure spare parts are held in sufficient quantity to appropriately manage asset unavailability risk.
    • Lead or support troubleshooting efforts when assets do not perform as intended.
    • Lead or support Incident investigations and root cause analyses (RCA).
    • Leverage learning from experience to continuously improve the asset maintenance strategy and LyondellBasell's broader asset management systems.
    • Participate in multi-disciplinary asset performance improvement teams.
    • Apply data analysis techniques to develop engineering solutions to repetitive failures and other problems that adversely affect process safety, personnel safety, environmental, regulatory, operational and quality performance.
    • Apply value analysis (e.g., life cycle cost analysis) to repair/replace, repair/redesign and make/buy decisions.
    • Provide technical support/expertise within your discipline during the front-end engineering and design (FEED) and execution phases of capital projects to ensure newly-installed and modified assets realize value throughout their life cycle.
    • Collaborate with peers at the site, within the Bayport Complex and across LyondellBasell.

      Min. Qualifications

      • Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Electrical Engineering or Nuclear Engineering with a minimum of 4 years relevant, proven experience in instrumentation and electrical systems design, installation, and maintenance in the refining, petrochemical or chemical processing or power generation industries.
      • Proven ability to systematically develop, monitor and continuously improve Instrument and Electrical asset maintenance strategies.
      • Proven, basic proficiency in the following areas:
        • Industry codes and standards (e.g., IEEE, ISA, NFPA, NEC, NETA)
        • Instrumentation and measurement technology
        • PLC programming and maintenance
        • Analyzers and sample systems
        • Low and medium voltage power distribution and control systems
        • Component failure analysis
        • Reliability engineering concepts
        • Reliability data analysis techniques
        • Project management process (PMP)
        • Application of computer software (SAP, AMS, CONVAL, ExSILentia, Power BI)
        • Strong interpersonal, oral/written communication and leadership skills are critical due to the requirement for effective communication of complex issues across the organization as well as for mentoring and consensus building.
        • Exhibit an understanding of business drivers, management of change requirements, reliability processes and maintenance workflow.
        • Ability to manage multiple, changing priorities in a dynamic work environment.
        • Strong commitment to safety, a high level of personal integrity and dedication to conducting business in an ethical way.
