Context and environment
 PBF is the TEPA brownfield Project division, and benefits of a matrix organization. It manages Projects from Basic Engineering to Start-up /
Hand-over to Field Operations teams.
 The nature of the brownfield Projects, with most of the execution offshore activities performed in SIMOPS on live FPSOs and congested seabed,
increases the risks and consequently the challenges of the Projects (co-activities with other Projects & Maintenance activities, minimization of
shortfalls -production/injection-, …).
 PBF manages EPC contracts with major international Contractors including onshore prefabrication in Angola, offshore construction &
installation in Angola (FPSO modifications, SURF, SPS, SIMOPS, high number of contractors & subcontractors).
 Brownfield environment, with all Site(s) activities carried out in SIMOPS mode.
 Lot of interfaces & synergies (within PBF & outside - FO teams notably-).
 Resident in Paris. Regular missions in Angola: Luanda and offshore.
 To be in charge of all the Flow assurance subjects related to the PBF projects.
 To adopt & to demonstrate exemplary behavior with regard to :
 HSEQ rules & requirements
 Company Ethics & “Code of Conduct” policy
 To deliver high quality documents as per defined planning enabling to guarantee a good practical and theoretical hand-over to the FO
permanent teams.
 To respect & to commit on planning
 To guarantee the implementation of a quality policy ensuring the operability of the production facilities.
 To ensure integration of new equipment in existing facilities.
 To work in close cooperation with the involved Project packages.
 To reinforce the site teams during the start-up of the new facilities.
Qualifications/Experience required
 Site experience in projects or in Field Operations.
 10 years’ experience in Flow assurance for oil and gas installations. Experience in deep subsea is compulsory.
