We are looking for a Lead Static Mechanical Engineer who will be part of a site team, managing the EPC execution work for the new Tyra TEG Processing Module.

The Senior Static Mechanical Engineer will be responsible for all static mechanical equipment, components and materials, including piping, vessels and valves.

Tyra is Denmark’s largest gas field. A full redevelopment will restore the infrastructure that processes 90% of Denmark’s North Sea gas.

After more than 30 years of production the Tyra field requires redevelopment because of the subsidence of the chalk reservoir. This has led to the Tyra platforms sinking by around 5 metres since production started, and has reduced the gap between the sea and the platform decks.

Maersk Oil and its partners in the Danish Underground Consortium (DUC) are committed to progress a full redevelopment plan for the Tyra field.

A full redevelopment will restore important North Sea gas infrastructure of pipelines and platforms. Tyra will continue to be the hub for export of Danish North Sea gas to shore.

The new asset ensures continued production from the Tyra field and the surrounding satellite fields. It also enables future projects and production of oil and gas volumes from the DUC license area as well as third party projects in the North part of the Danish North Sea.

We Offer

Joining Maersk Oil as part of the Tyra Future Project, you will be part of a highly experienced team that are delivering innovative technical capabilities to ensure successful redevelopment of the field.

You will get to share your ideas as part of a cross-functional team and be part of site teams, managing the EPC execution work.

This position will initially be based in Esbjerg, Denmark with regular travel to site.

As the project progresses the role may move to Site as part of continued operations.
