LNG & Cryogenic Gas Process Engineer, Commissioning and Start-up Engineer

As an LNG & Cryo Gas Process Engineer, you are responsible for the review and development of P&ID's in several LNG, CO2, Hydrogen and Green Ammonia import terminal projects. Together with Vopak's Project Manager, you engage with the design companies in reviewing process safety with HAZID and HAZOP sessions. In dialogue with the future Operators, you discuss the operability and maintainability of the process plant. This can be LNG import, but also CO2, H2 and NH3 import, storage, re-liquefaction and regasification. Vopak is also having small-scale LNG liquefaction in its project portfolio. 

Where the project design is frozen and construction is moving ahead, your role as LNG & Cryo Gas Process Engineer gravitates towards Commissioning and Start-up Engineer. Drafting and reviewing of Pre-Commissioning, Commissioning , Start-up and Performance Test procedures, in coordination with the construction contractors, is part of your role. Planning the (pre-)commissioning schedule and prioritizing / sequencing mechanical completions to meet commissioning deadlines is also required. Before start-up, you will carry out a Pre Start-up Safety Review (PSSR) together with the future Operators of the terminal.
