Maersk Oil is looking for a dedicated Senior or Lead Production Engineer to join its Corporate Technology and Innovation department (CTI), at its head office in Copenhagen. CTI is the custodian of Maersk Oil’s research and technology development investments, manages the associated global project portfolio, provides technology scouting, advises the organization on new technology applications and supports and facilitates technology deployment across the company’s operations. CTI works closely with Maersk Oil’s business units and research centres to ensure an appropriate project portfolio, able to deliver results in accordance with the technology strategy and goals of the company.
We Offer
A role as Production Engineer in a cross-disciplinary, diverse and integrated team, working with dedication and passion to develop and manage Maersk Oil’s technical development and innovation project portfolio. The successful candidate will be working jointly with business units, discipline chiefs and Maersk Oil research centres in Copenhagen and Qatar to identify projects aiming to find new and innovative technical solutions to the challenges encountered by Maersk Oil’s global operations. For on-going projects, the Production Engineer will provide advice and steer in terms of project advance, needs for readjustment and potential re-prioritisations. Implementation of new technological solutions is the responsibility of the Maersk Oil business units, but the Production Engineer will be working closely together with these to provide recommendations and support in terms of safe and effective solution adaptation and time and cost effective deployment.

Technology development projects are anchored in a distributed fashion across Maersk Oil. A key role of the Production Engineer in CTI is therefore through engagement with business units and external technology and research providers to maintain an overview of the on-going global production and operating engineering projects in Maersk Oil. From a central position of overview the role provides the ideal position to stimulate and drive effective sharing of ideas, solutions and learnings from the many technology projects across the organisations.

As part of the role, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in global technology scouting and accordingly be exposed to new technologies and workflows, as well as, continuously encountering new opportunities for learning and development. A pivotal element of the role will be a direct involvement in the sharing and absorption of new technologies and innovations across the company.
