Chevron is accepting online applications for the position of entry-level Facilities Engineers located in:
• Bakersfield, California
• Belle Chasse, Louisiana
• Covington, Louisiana
• El Segundo, California
• Greeley, Colorado
• Houston, Texas
• Midland, Texas
• Pasadena, Texas
• Pascagoula, Mississippi
• Richmond, California
• Salt Lake City, Utah
Facilities Engineers support operating facilities and projects through the application of technical engineering knowledge and project management skills. These areas of support may include:
• Optimizing facilities to deliver maximum value safely and reliably.
• Providing technical engineering support for turnarounds and projects.
• Developing and/or deploying industry leading technologies to reduce carbon, increase efficiency and maximize returns.
• Using digitalization and data analytics to improve process operations and safety.
Entry-level Facilities Engineers will be enrolled in Chevron’s Horizons Program, an early-career development program combining formal training, on-the-job competency development, mentoring, and multiple job assignments. Horizons Engineers will be enrolled in a development track aligned with their degree to develop a core technical foundation to draw upon throughout their career:
• Electrical Engineering graduates may be placed in either an Instrumentation & Controls track or an Electrical Power Systems track. Both tracks develop competencies for designing and maintaining instrumentation and control devices and electrical power systems and equipment, with specialization depending on the track assigned. Engineers in these roles support activities ranging from process control networks and process automation systems to optimize plants, operating large power systems and generators, assuring power system integrity and reliability, and monitoring power systems for efficient power management.
• Mechanical Engineering graduates will be placed in a Mechanical Systems track. Engineers in this track will develop competencies to design, analyze, and optimize fixed and rotating equipment such as piping & valve systems, heaters and heat exchangers, pressure vessels, tanks, pumps, and other rotating equipment.
• Chemical Engineering graduates will be placed in a Process track. Engineers in this track will develop competencies to design and optimize systems for separation, purification, transformation, transportation and disposition of hydrocarbons, water and various other process streams by physical and chemical means.
• Civil Engineering graduates will be placed in a Civil/Structural/Marine track. Engineers in this track will develop competencies to design, analyze, fabricate, construct, transport, install and startup offshore, onshore, and nearshore facilities, and marine systems.
Facilities engineers typically complete the Horizons program in their first five years of employment, and may have the opportunity to work in multiple work locations during that time. After graduating from Horizons, engineers may continue to work in roles aligned with their initial Horizons track, or they may choose to focus on other areas of interest, including:
• Reliability & Integrity Engineering – focused on asset integrity, reliability, maintainability, and operability of operating assets.
• Technical Safety Engineering - identify hazards, assess risk, and develop mitigation strategies through application of engineering design principles to a managed level of risk for operating facilities and capital projects.
• Subsea Engineering – focused on design, construction, integration, testing, and installation of subsea equipment, controls, umbilicals, and pipelines; also includes engineering for well intervention, production optimization, and reliability of the subsea system.
• Engineering Design & Projects - deliver high quality designs and predictable execution of projects through the development and application of sound engineering and design principles and processes.
• General Facilities Engineering - Support operating facilities through application of broad fundamental technical engineering knowledge and small project execution skills.
Facilities Engineers have the opportunity to advance throughout their career as individual contributors or as engineering supervisors and managers. Opportunities also exist for facilities engineers to work in & lead other business functions such as Operations or Business & Commercial.
• Students completing the last year of the requirements for their bachelors or masters degree in chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering; or, individuals with a bachelors or masters degree in chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, or mechanical engineering with two years or less directly related work experience.
• Strong academic performance in core programs, communication, leadership, teamwork and problem-solving skills.
• Position may require driving on a routine basis.
Relocation may be considered within Chevron parameters.
