Req Number: 17419BR

Position Description:
We are seeking a Process Simulation and Economics Expert to join the Chemicals Research & Development Division at the Research and Development Center.
The Chemicals Research & Development Division is responsible for developing innovation technology solutions and products that support and grow the use of petroleum-based feedstock for petrochemicals and improve benefits of refinery-petrochemicals integration.
Your main role is to perform process engineering studies in all research project phases, including conceptual design, process simulation and modelling, identification and evaluation of alternatives, feasibility/economic studies, etc.

Minimum Requirements:
As a successful candidate, you will hold a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. A master’s degree or higher in Chemical Engineering, with a focus on process simulation and modelling, is highly preferred.
You will have at least 12 years of experience as a process engineer within a major technology licensing and/or oil company, with a strong background mainly in refining and petrochemical process technologies, particularly in olefins and aromatics technologies.
You will have intensive experience in process simulation modeling with Aspen Plus, Aspen Hysys, and Petro-Sim, or other industry-standard software.
You will also have experience in the techno-economics evaluation of R&D projects and in the commercialization of R&D technologies.

Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:
Apply process engineering principles and expertise during project research and development and in support of Chemicals Division projects.
Perform process engineering activities in all research project phases, including heat and material balances, process data sheets for the sizing of equipment, feasibility/economic studies, conceptual design, process simulation, and the identification and evaluation of alternatives, etc.
Develop process simulation models of complex refining/chemical processes to better understand the levers driving capital and operating cost. Ensure the accuracy of techno-economic models.
Provide economic evaluation of the value of specific projects, as well as evaluations on the portfolio of research projects, assess market and business opportunities, and determine the best commercialization route.
