2019 Turnaround Portfolio - Grangemouth Refinery

TAR Planner - Contract until June 2019


In preparation for our 2019 turnaround (TAR) programme, we are looking to grow our team to continue building on our previous world-class turnaround performances.  This £50M turnaround will complete over 1600 work packs within a condensed, industry leading, turnaround duration.  This will include statutory inspection of pressure systems, rotating machinery overhauls, piping & valve repairs and major capital investment projects.

As part of the pre-engineering and execute team, you will be part of a team responsible for delivering a safe, high quality, on budget and “on time” turnaround.

We are looking to have the team in place during Q3 this year with the turnaround planned for Q2 2019. 

Following on from this portfolio, Grangemouth Refinery is working towards a planned investment of a new £400M crude distillation complex.  It is expected that many of the talented individuals we recruit could have the opportunity to support this major project.

The role is within the Petroineos Grangemouth refinery


During pre-engineering, the TAR Planners primary function is to produce a robust TAR schedule by engaging key stakeholders.  The planners’ key function during the event is to measure and analyse progress against the plan and highlight opportunities or areas requiring focus.
