General Information/Job Summary

Senior Process Engineer supports the internal process engineering team for EPC projects 
from FEED to commissioning and post start up activities. Projects are valued as small as 
$50,000 engineering-only work up to $200mm large scale EPC projects.   The Senior Process 
Engineer will also assist with proposal and estimating activities for EPC project 
opportunities/bids. Determines methods and solutions for complex engineering problems and 
selects the most efficient and economical manner in meeting the objectives. Applies 
advanced engineering techniques and analysis within project scope, and acts as process 
engineering lead for select projects.


Conceptual development of project scope and estimating for new project proposals
Selects and implements correct design concepts and fundamental technology used for new 
projects and designs and/or improvements for existing designs
Ability to interface with other engineering department disciplines/leads to collaborate on 
projects, and identify and develop corrective action on projects issues when they arise
Ensure and maintain compliance with corporate and engineering-specific policies, 
procedures, and work processes within the process engineering group workflow
Acts as a lead process design engineer on major projects, with a high level competency of 
performing tasks including, but not limited:
Specifying, sizing, and providing process data for equipment such as pressure vessels, 
heat exchangers, process towers, aerial coolers, pumps, fired heaters, filters, 
compressors and storage tanks
Creating equipment datasheets, equipment requisition, bid tab evaluation, and detailed 
review of equipment vendor packages and drawings
Conceptual development of process P&IDs and PFDs based on inlet process conditions, 
process-control requirements, heat integration, plant environment/resources, and client-
driven outlet specifications and desired products
Conceptual development of plot plans to optimize equipment layout and arrangements to 
maximize cost savings while maintaining required spacing guidelines and 
operability/accessibility of equipment
Generating detailed process simulations using BR&E ProMax and other simulation softwares 
to model plant behavior and operating conditions to optimize process design and equipment 
Plant pipe sizing, pressure drop analysis, and hydraulic studies
Line list development, and occasional piping isometric drawing reviews
Active participation and involvement in plant process hazard analysis (PHA) and resulting 
action item analysis and close-out
Relief valve sizing and assistance in datasheet development and procurement of the PSVs.   
Review of relief valve sizing calculations provided by equipment vendors for confirmation 
of adequate sizing
Flare system design and hydraulic performance analysis
Cause & effect diagram development for process control, plant and equipment alarm and 
shutdown scenarios

Proficiency in navigating plant 3D modeling software to identify proper layout, routing, 
and arrangement of equipment, piping, and instrumentation for optimum plant operation, 
economics, and maintenance activities
Emission source calculations and identification for environmental compliance
Develop necessary process data for information for instrument engineers to size and 
specify control valves, shutdown valves, flow meters, regulators, and 
First fill and utility fluid requirement calculations
Troubleshooting and debottlenecking of plant operations
Ability to lead internal and client-related meetings for detailed walkthrough and 
explanation of design documents (P&IDs, equipment sizing, Cause & Effect, Plot Plan, PHA, 
Ability to review plant 3D models developed by other disciplines to ensure proper 
configuration, placements of equipment, routing of piping, etc. meets the intent of the 
process design
Tracking of job specific project budgets to ensure cost control is maintained on projects 
(labor hours, engineered equipment costs, etc.)
