Vacancy information

Within the « Global Project Center », the Installation Methods Engineering Discipline performs all aspects of transportation and installation Engineering, ranging from conceptual studies to support client development decisions, to tender level engineering and to detailed engineering on project.

The Installation Methods Engineering Discipline is specifically in charge of the installation of subsea structures, mooring systems, risers systems, flexible flowlines and umbilicals.

The definition of the Transportation and Installation strategy of the permanent equipments is a critical activity at Tender and Project phase.

Depending on the project environment, a multitude of transportation and installation scenarios are developed taking into consideration the Technical and associated Cost constraints.

The parameters entering into account in the Operation Plan definition are mainly the quantity and characteristics of permanent equiments (Flexible pipes, Umbilicals and Flying Leads) and the associated Installation/Transportation Vessel capacity.

The purpose of this internship is to consolidate a more robust process for comparing amongst various Transportation and Installation scenarios and selecting the most relevant one considering technical and economic criteria.

Being integrated to the Installation Method Discipline, the trainee will have the opportunity to discover the offshore industry and our organisation through various interfaces with experienced teams. He/she will have access to our tools, take benefit of past and future project experiences and arrange his progress meeting.

The trainee will have the opportunity to understand our know-how in design and installation engineering as well as to get familiar with the costs involved during the Transportation/Installation of offshore permanent equipments. His/her main scope of work will be to :

  • Identify the diversity, pros & cons and the limiting criteria of the Flexlay Vessels within the Subsea 7 Fleet,
  • Identify the diversity, pros & cons and the limiting criteria of Transportation Vessels available on the market ,
  • Build a screening matrix gathering the main characteristics/capacities of these vessels (laying/packing equipment, access to loading port, deck strength, stability, maximum quantity of products based on typical deck layout…),
  • Build a flexible product packing track record (supported by drawings when available) based on past project understanding supplier constraints and limitations (number, type capacity and size of transportation reels),
  • Propose process and associated tools to confirm product spoolability on carousels (mobilised on Top or Underdeck, Reel or Basket Type Carousel),
  • Provide recommendation on current packing calculation spreadsheet,
  • Prepare an engineering report to present his work and the conclusions.

This internship is dedicated to a student in his last year of engineering studies, interested by the Oil & Gas Offshore Industry, having a general knowledge in mechanics and being preferably specialized in naval architecture or marine construction.

The trainee will have to collaborate with the engineers of the installation method team as well as people in charge of operations and cost estimating.

Profile :

He/she will have to demonstrate autonomy, dynamism and consistency to bring valuable optimisation and to reach a relevant synthesis in the perspective of a better efficiency on our next projects.

An advanced level of English is mandatory.
