Our Client are a huge name in the offshore Oil and Gas sector. Their assets include a range of state-of-the art FPSOs stationed in oil fields across the globe. They are constantly working on new development projects as they are seen as the experts in floating production.

As an experienced Mechanical Engineer you will be working in their Norwegian HQ alongside a team of expert engineers in their newly formed 'early phase' team. The early phase team are delivering feasibility studies and concept engineering work for major Oil & Gas customers worldwide. These projects will spread across Greenfield and Brownfield solutions, looking into the feasibility of utilising existing floaters, new build options and a range of technologies.

This is a "hands on" role and will require the Mechanical Engineer to be able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, liaising and/or managing subcontractors and dealing with important client stakeholders on a range of FPSO studies.

Essential Requirements:

  • You must be a Degree qualified Mechanical Engineer
  • Minimum 3 years' experience if you tick all of the boxes, particularly within 'early phase', topsides work
  • Sound knowledge of rotating machinery in particular compressors, pumps, turbines
  • Experience delivering early phase project work relating to topside oil processing facilities
  • Extrovert personality, strong communicator, Client-facing and capable of presenting to customers as well as internal stakeholders


  • 10 years' experience within a similar capacity
  • Experience specifically of FPSO early phase projects (as opposed or in addition to platform topsides)
  • Competency in process engineering to assist / act as a process engineer when the workload in this department is high - e.g. knowledge about main process tools, particularly Hysys would be highly desirable
  • Experience working directly for an FPSO Engineering firm or Owner
