No. of Positions:
The Control System Engineer (CSE) is deployed by the CSE Department to support the control systems within an operating area. Each area has controls that automate plant processes and provide an interface to operators for control, indication and alarming. CSE technical challenges include support of equipment spread over a large geographical area, a mixture of equipment ranging from the oldest to the very newest technologies, real-time closed loop control, supervisory control, advanced control, real-time optimization and safety instrumented functions.
Success in this role is maintaining excellent process safety performance, reducing control and instrument reliability incidents, enforcing engineering standards, improving standardization of equipment and configuration while planning for and reducing obsolescence, and responding to, anticipating and meeting Operation’s needs. The engineer must thrive in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment and use prioritization skills to balance urgent short-term work with crucial long-term objectives.

As a deployed unit engineer, the CSE also takes direction from the unit Production Unit Manager and works closely with peers including other unit CSEs, the process engineer, the instrument inspector, and engineers from other technical disciplines.
The position provides opportunities to sharpen instrument and analyzer technology and troubleshooting skills with practical field experience. The position has growth potential for supervision of contractors and mentoring of paraprofessionals, business case development and presentation, and capital project work process.
