Technical Support Group Manager

Our client is an independent oil and gas company with producing interests in the North Sea, Indonesia, Mauritania and Pakistan. After several new discoveries in recent years, the signing of substantial commercial supply agreements, new exploration projects underway and an increased focus on people’s career management and Learning and Development programmes, our client is entering an exciting time of growth and positive change throughout the region.

Due to the newly acquired project, the company is in need of a strong who can fulfil the accountabilities highlighted below. Ideally, our client is looking for candidates who are already residing in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Based in Jakarta, the incumbent will be responsible for all Technical Support Group (TSG) activities to the Development and Operations functions. TSG includes 4 sub-groups which work together in an integrated way to make sure all customer needs from Production Operations (priority #1) and Facilities Development (priority #2) are met in full.

TSG includes:

Facilities Engineering: a multi-disciplined group of professional engineers which are either on point for Operational support and Change Management Governance or deployed out to live project teams either during FEED or Project Execution phases.

Static Facilities Integrity: this group ensures Process Safety in terms of corrosion management, structural and pressure containment integrity, inspection and certification of facilities.

Maintenance Systems: this group is responsible for integrating together all maintenance routines and practices into one Field Integrity Management System (FIMS), development of the associated CMMS system. It also ensures rotating equipment care and maintenance so to preserve safety and uptime targets. It is also engaged in developing Independent Verification Body (IVB) systems of work which effectively audit FIMS execution.

Instrument Controls and Electrical integrity: this team ensures integrity of electrical and control systems and software.

The TSG is a new concept. The TSG holds the Technical Authorities Staff which are assigned to govern and control the safety of the equipment allowing the Production Operations teams onshore and offshore to maximise revenues and operate the plant in the safe knowledge of its intrinsic integrity.

Industry recognised codes and standards of engineering and maintenance work are expected to be ensured by the TSG Manager.

Team development and management skills will be tested in this role, through developing existing staff who may not have operated before in a structured formalised way with clear accountabilities and technical authorities, to operate in accordance with this mandate.

The incumbent will also be responsible for forging strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders especially the Regulator BPMIGAS.

Should you know anybody who fits and may be interested with the role, please do not hesitate to pass on my contact information and this email to them. I would be happy to discuss this opportunity at the soonest as I only have until Friday this week to submit my proposed candidate.
