Pipeline Simulation Engineer (12502)

Requisition Number 12502 - Posted 11/23/2011 - Tulsa, OK


Williams Midstream is seeking an experienced engineer to model, simulate and analyze pipeline operations transporting NGL and other liquid products. This position will be part of a team effort focused on both offline and online simulations using a software application suite. It will have specific responsibility for managing the input data used in all applications in the software suite.


Other Responsibilities:
• With ongoing changes to model data and settings, the simulation engineer will help develop and implement a management of change process relating to the applications across the software suite and the various company organizations supported by the team. 
• This role will perform various offline steady-state and transient analyses for operational support and regulatory requirements such as procedure and surge studies. The simulation engineer will develop knowledge of all suite applications including online analysis modules specifically used for pipeline leak detection. As such, they will also be expected to achieve proficiency as a back-up leak detection engineer supporting pipeline control functions with occasional on-call responsibilities.
• Maintaining proficiency with the modeling and analysis tools may also include attendance at software vendor training classes and user group conferences along with other technical events.

This Tulsa-based role will be have responsibility for pipeline systems across the United States and may require frequent facility visits to work with field personnel involved with day-to-day system operations and maintenance, verify input data pertaining to physical configuration, operations and control systems, and to gain practical experience and knowledge of the systems.
