About this role

You will be responsible for ensuring that the production objectives of the gas facility are on track and achieved.

Day to day, your work can vary massively. From planning the operation and maintenance of the gas production units to improving the performance of installations and approving modifications made to plant equipment.

When an incident occurs on site, you will be the go to person. Making timely decisions in order to ensure the problem is dealt with as soon as possible and production is back on track.

From time to time, the plant will need to undergo shutdowns for maintenance and overhauls. As the Head of Operations, you will be in charge of preparing these shutdowns.

This is a permanent role based in Algeria and the rotation is 4*4.

Gas plants like this one are huge, but you won’t be alone.

You’ll have a team of Operation Engineers to manage so that targets are met and activities are carried out in accordance with safety rules and instructions.

About you

You will be boosted by over 10 years of experience working in the oil and gas industry for international operators or EPC’s. Within this time, you’ll have accumulated a number of years’ experience in hydrocarbon exploitation or production.

Degree wise there is some flexibility, but you’ll likely hold a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in an Engineering related field.
