Job Title: EPSRS Co-ordinator

Job Code: 161

Organisation: Leader Engineering – Nigeria

Job Description:

SITUATION IN ORGANISATION

Position to report: Deep Water Engineering Construction and Project, Subsea Manager

SERVICE DIMENSIONS

The primary role of the EPSRS Coordinator is to coordinate the establishment of the Emergency Pipeline and Subsea Repair System (EPSRS) for the Deep Water (DW) District.

The EPSRS Coordinator ensures preparedness of DW District to repair in emergency failures on critical pipelines or subsea equipment.

The scope of intervention of the DW District EPRS covers production, water injection, gas injection and gas export pipelines, risers including structures (FLETS, ILTs) and spools / jumpers, manifolds, umbilicals and terminations, flexibles lines (bonded and unbonded), offloading hoses, OOLs and all their appurtenances, FPSO and OLT moorings, flexible joints, etc…

In order to achieve the above, the EPSRS Coordinator will verify that critical failure scenarios are identified, repair methodologies are available, contracting strategies covering specific services and additional procurement are in place and operational.

Outcomes of the activity are important as the deliverables will largely contribute to the reduction of repairs time and improvement of facilities availability.

Putting in place the EPSRS material management strategy in dedicated Company or Contractors yards is also a major role of the Service holder.

The position includes a coordinating role due to the transverse nature of the activity. The Service holder has to liaise with Operations, Engineering, Construction, Projects, Contracts, Procurement, Contractors and Headquarters Company specialists and experts, under the supervision of the DW ECP Subsea Manager.

ACTIVITIES

The major activities of the EPSRS Coordinator cover the two main areas of emergency repairs, the conceptual strategy and the material management:

Conceptual strategy

In line with Company Referential requirement and local organisation, puts in place the requirement of an EPSRS:

• Finalise with all stakeholders the exact scope of intervention of EPRS, in particular with regards to subsea production units (valves, instrumentation, wellheads, etc…),

• Establish the EPSRS technical guide, covering asset register, most likely failure scenarios and guide through the repair process,

• Update components criticality ranking,

• Define repair scenarios and develop repair methodologies covering from damage investigation through to re-commissioning,

• Prepare detailed description of incorporable equipment to be used in case of repair,

• Source qualified suppliers and indicate delivery schemes, schedules and costs,

• Provide guidelines for storage and preservation,

• Make recommendation for spares and contracting strategy,

• Identify Contractors capable of managing repairs of identified critical failure scenarios,

• Challenge identified repair solutions proposed by Contractors,

• In collaboration with DW and Port-Harcourt (PHC) Districts Technical & Logistics Departments, define material management strategy for EPSRS material,

• Carry-out if necessary tests on repair solution to ensure soundness,

• Organise training and sensibilisation of various entities potentially involved in an emergency repair to ensure preparedness of organisation,

• Define, in agreement with PHC District JV Offshore Asset, battery limit of EPSRS scopes for project 16” Gas Export Line to Amenam,

• Ensure PHC District JV Offshore EPRS progresses in line with plan as any failure on Amenem 24” Gas Export Line to Bonny LNG plant will have an impact on Projects & production,

• Be the Technical Administrator (TADM) for EPSRS stock materials,

• Be the custodian of EPSRS stock material technical supporting documents, e.g. mill certificates, material certificates, pressure test certificates, manufacturer certificates, etc…,

• Be the guardian of EPSRS documentation quality assurance and quality control,

• Establish synergies between DW Districts Asset EPSRS strategies,

• Representing Company, participate in Work Groups on EPSRS matter with other Nigerian operators,

• Prepare the EPSRS organisational procedure.

Material Management

In collaboration with DW and PHC Districts Technical & Logistics Departments, establish a leadership position in order to ensure that:

• EPSRS and operational surplus segregation is organised for ex-Project delivered material,

• EPSRS material is reviewed and inspected on receipt,

• Dedicated preservation plans are elaborated and put in place per type of material, ensure markings are readable,

• Regular inspection of EPSRS material is organised, result reports issued and subsequent action plans put in place,

• EPSRS material is stored in specific and dedicated areas (open air, warehouse, confined environment…) as per Company Technical Authorities (TA) and manufacturers or suppliers storage recommendations,

• EPSRS material and supporting documents are properly managed (UNISUP),

• Regular inspection, maintenance, repair, replenishment and recertification of EPSRS stock materials are implemented,

• Periodical (annual) reviews and update of EPSRS documentation are implemented.

• Best use of storage facilities in Onne or Port-Harcourt new pipe yard is determined in liaison with DW PHC District, by specifying the required space and conditions (open, sheltered and air conditioned) and access conditions.

CONTEXT AND ENVIRONMENT

DW District has decided to improve its level of preparedness regarding emergency repairs to be carried out on subsea equipment and subsequently develop an EPSRS.

A study was performed in 2005 for the Project asset with the objective of making recommendations for the procurement of critical spares. Spares were bought and are stored in Onne.

Adopting the proper scheme and strategy for implementing an EPSRS is a challenging issue as there is a permanent and prominent concern to maximise preparedness and minimise capital assets.

The Service holder must therefore exert a sensible sense of judgment to recommend / validate solutions suited to the local environment and business constraints, without compromising on the major requirements of Integrity Management. Working on successive building blocks, demonstrating localised benefits, working from simple to complex will be preferred strategies.

EPSRS Coordination is an overarching / transverse function, dealing with a rather important number of activities and disciplines having already their own approaches and practices. Developing good collaborative spirit with all stakeholders, demonstrating clear long term vision and showing a good degree of conviction are therefore essential to the success.

The position holds a wide spectrum of activities and requires extended and solid experience in various disciplines in order to ensure adherence of staff to the objectives.

Location: Lagos

Status: Resident. Various missions to Onne, Port-Harcourt, Contractors’ yards, layout vessels.

ACCOUNTABILITIES

Compliance with DW ECP HSE KPI & Objective and assist DW ECP in compliance with overall HSE requirement

Accountability is mainly associated to the soundness of the repair solutions and recommendations proposed as the Service holder has no direct management responsibility.

His main accountability lies into the level of preparedness of DW District to face emergency repairs to be carried out on subsea equipment. This implies development of repair methodologies and contracting strategies covering specific services and spares procurement.
