Assists in the accumulation
and analysis of geological data, conducts geological surveys
and keeps up-to-date on current activities in the industry.
Performs assigned duties associated
with electrical layout design of projects. These projects
include complete substation and diesel station layouts,
proposals for the same and modifications to those stations.
Will use a variety of standard engineering methods and techniques
and will assume responsibility for moderately complex layouts.
Performs a variety of engineering
tasks including the development of plant layouts, work methods
and manufacturing processes; designing tools; selecting,
procuring and installing machines, tools and material-handling
equipment; and establishing standard time values for production
and non-production operations.
- Maintains subsurface
information on a current basis and suggests lease purchases
and geophysical programs to the immediate supervisor;
- Makes field studies
as assigned and prepares both surface and subsurface maps;
- Performs microscopic
examinations of samples and cores of wells for stratigraphic
and reservoir studies;
- Assists with the accumulation
and the analysis of geological data for an exploratory
and/or development drilling program;
- Assists the immediate
supervisor to keep informed of current activities in industry
that might affect company performance.
The electrical engineering
- preparing preliminary,
and detailed electrical layout, other than that performed
by Protection and Control, based on Assignment Sheets
and one line diagrams supplied by client;
- liasing with Civil Engineering
Section to achieve compatibility of respective proposals;
- writing specifications,
usually for installation work;
- checking information
provided by contractors who are bidding on contracts to
ensure adequacy of proposals and recommending contract
awards based on that information, past experience with
the contractor, capability (equipment, etc.) and price;
- investigating complaints
regarding design received from the field during construction
and from operating staff following construction, and making
design changes if justified;
- making design calculations
as required, applying standardized details and devising
non-standard details as necessary;
- reviewing manufacturers'
drawings on request by the Equipment and Materials Branch.
Under general direction, makes
independent studies, analyes, interpretations and conclusions
in one or a combination of the following assignments:
- Process Engineering
- determines tools, equipment and dies required for shaping,
finishing and assembling an assigned product, thus planning
the sequence of operations;
- Machine and Tool Design
- designs and develops machinery, machine tools, gauges,
dies, jigs, fixtures and special tools required as most
suitable to the prescribed volume of production, materials
- Gauge design - develops
special gauges and instruments and applies statistical
methods in order to attain precision specified;
- Plant or Layout Engineering
- arranges machines, lays out plant facilities and set-ups
to ensure the most efficient and productive layout. Designs
material-handling methods. Develops, designs and recommends
long- and short-term plans for maintenance, repair and
expansion of buildings, equipment and facilities including
power plant and utilities;
- Time and Motion Studies
- makes studies to determine standard rates and eliminate
waste of time, labour and materials;
- Quality Control - develops,
recommends and administers quality control techniques. Utilizes
industrial statistics for the presentation and analysis
of quality control and other manufacturing data. Prepares
cost estimates, makes studies of feasibility and provides
information, advice and engineering assistance within the
scope of assigned work.
Recommendations limited to
the solution of immediate problems relating to a phase of
a project. Decisions relate to the selection of data and
the application of techniques. Such judgments are normally
made by following established guidelines and practice. Refers
unusual problems to a more senior geologist.
Recommendations will include
complete solutions within the scope of the job. Unusual
problems and techniques of a novel nature will normally
be referred to a senior engineer.
Recommendations and decisions
are usually based on operational experience. Work is relied
upon as sound and authoritative within the scope of an assignment.
Difficult, complex or unusual decisions are usually referred
to higher authority. Errors of judgement could cause serious
loss of man-ufacturing time and material.
Appropriate B.Sc. degree, normally
with two years of relevant experience since graduation.
Bachelor's degree in Applied
Science or its equivalent, normally with three years working
experience since graduation.
Bachelor's degree in Engineering
or Applied Science or its equivalent, normally with three
to five years of related working experience since graduation.
