Ideally 10years experience in offshore/subsea pipeline engineering in FEED or detailed design projects, particularly he/she must have minimum 8years experience in subsea/offshore pipeline global buckling and walking design and associated advance pipeline engineering
Hands-on experience in ABAQUS (FEA) and associated software/tools (Buckfast etc.) to perform pipeline global buckling and walking analysis and he or she should have executed at least 5 pipeline projects (medium to large projects) that involved FEA pipeline global buckling and walking design and strain-based and fatigue designs according to latest DNV / Safebuckstandards.
Ideally having experience in deterministic and probabilistic methods / VAS and should have latest technical know-how and well versed with latest technical publication/papers/ research works with regards to pipeline global buckling and walking design
Candidate should be familiar with other pipeline design software such as DNV-OS-F-101, AGA, DNV Stablelines, Offpipe/ Orcaflex, Sage, Autopipe, DNV Fatfree and Ansys, and Mathcad, MS office tools.
Good exposure to pipeline design – pipeline design basis, wall thickness design, on-bottom stability design, coating selection, cathodic protection design, free span and on-bottom roughness analysis, crossing design, shore approach design, riser & expansion spool design and installation analysis, and pipeline route selection
Exposure to clad / lined pipelines, piggy back / bundle pipelines,sour service pipelines,long trunk or export lines
Candidate should be familiar with subsea structure designs such as risers & spools / PLET / in-line structures. related pipeline global buckling and walking issues.
Candidate should be familiarwith pipeline design standards & codes – ASME, API, DNV, ISO etc.
