The LP Modeling responsibilities are categorized as follows:
-Modeling Engineer Major Duties
A) Major Duties:
-Review the current models on monthly basis and evaluate, based on refinery (and Gas/NGL Plants) back casting, the required modifications.
-Modify the existing models according to the revision results.
-Participate and lead other SA organizations in building new LP & Simulation models.
-Assist refineries MPU in analyzing the optimization output of the refinery PIMS models.
-Carry out sensitivity analysis when needed.
-Apply new ideas or necessary modifications in the refining/Gas systems and analyze the results and their influence with the help of planning Engineers.
-Carry out or apply new ideas or modifications in the transportation system and analyze the results and their influence with the help of planning Engineers.
-Update the parameters / data in the models when necessary.
-Attend and participate in all PIMS team meetings or arrange for them when necessary.
-Evaluate options carried out in refineries/Gas & NGL models and remodel them in the Global XPIMS models.
-Participate in educating other OSPAS engineers about the LP models.
-Attend departmental/division/group meetings.
B) Studies Activities:
The Planning Engineer should review and evaluate refined products future projects and studies proposed by OSPAS or other entities. This includes developing the model changes, running the model, evaluate the results and recommend or send comments to the concerned entity and follow up on required actions.
Major Interfaces: All OSPAS Engineers/Staff, Corp. Planning, Facilities Planning Department and Refineries.
Duties And Responsibilities:
A. Plans, schedules and provides work direction as required for preparation of designs, processes, reports, correspondence and related data and assures the efficiency, adequacy and conformance to overall objectives of alt phases of very complex engineering problems.
B. Support the development and formulates the basis for engineering studies in any of several basic or special engineering fields by analyzing and evaluating all data pertinent to problems. Evaluates data as to scope, effect on existing installations, economic value, long range planning and budgetary considerations.
C. Leads the activists of project proposal that include development of scope, functions, interrelationship, integration, physical solution definition, cost estimate, etc. Leads project execution for project proposal, initiatives, studies and continuous improvement of solutions and Problem solvers.
D. Initiates detailed work outline and makes decision as to basic approaches, processes and/or equipment. Performs work and/or delegates work to other engineers for final development of specialized or technical proposals and proposed projects.
E. Brings all elements of a project together, makes certain that all elements proceed satisfactorily on schedule and within the money allowed; and initiates corrective action as required. Reviews cost estimates, recommendation from vendors, consultants, and licensors.
F. Discusses, coordinates and resolves problems with personnel throughout Aramco and subsidiaries and with outside of company organizations. Acts as technical consultant when required.
