Antwerp Area

 

 

  • The Antwerp Refinery, which is integrated with the Performance Intermediates Plant, is situated in the port area. With ongoing large and small investments, ExxonMobil ensures that the installations on the refinery site remain modern and efficient, and that the refinery retains its competitiveness.
  • The Antwerp Performance Intermediates Plant is one of the largest and most modern plants in Europe that produces liquid hydrocarbons. The plant has been completely integrated with the refinery as part of an initiative to maximise efficiency.
  • The Meerhout Polymers Plant is one of the the largest LDPE manufacturers in Europe and it supplies products to numerous industries. The plant is organisationally twinned with the Zwijndrecht Polymers Plant, which produces special types of polyethylene in relatively small volumes.

What role you will play in our team

 

 

Antwerp Refinery

 

 

  • In Antwerp Refinery we are looking for enthusiast colleagues to join us as Process Engineers. 

 

 

AMPP

 

 

  • In AMPP we are looking for enthusiastic colleagues to join us as Process or Equipment Engineer. Our production process builds on proprietary ExxonMobil Technology, in which ethylene gas is compressed to >2500bar before reaction occurs into a reactor. The hot polymer is subsequently cut into pellets (and packaged) before transportation to the customers.
  • Due to the wide variety of equipment, the technical difficulties of working at high gas pressures and the production of specialty grades, these manufacturing sites create a challenging environment for engineers to learn and to develop themselves.

 

 

 

What you will do

 

 

Antwerp Refinery
 

 

  • In this role you are responsible for the operation of a part of our manufacturing units and work in close collaboration with our operators, maintenance and engineering specialists. You strive for optimal efficiency, cost effectiveness and operational safety.

  • In these roles you are responsible to solve problems in close collaboration with engineering specialists, operations and maintenance colleagues to ensure safe, environmentally responsible, reliable and cost effective operation of the equipment. You will be responsible to drive improvements that may lead to new capital projects. You will be part of a highly competent, diverse, young and international team in which different engineering disciplines are combined.

 

 

Antwerp Refinery + AMPP

 

 

  • As part of our career development system, a next role after 2 or 3 years may be deepening your skills in another technical or project role, a more “coordinating” position such as managing energy consumption in the entire manufacturing site or a more commercial/business role.
  • In the long term you may develop into an international technical or business specialist or towards a more managerial career, depending on your preferences, skills and performance.
