Workpack engineer

Referring to the title above, what is the workpack engineer job scope in offshore?any technical skills needed?similar to project engineer?what is the job prospect?

Thank You

never heard of it

wp engr prepares workpacks ie. doing workscoping, materials and equipment estimation, manpower requirements, stuff like that…better speak with ppl with exp in this job.

comissioning or testing?

Jobcard also…

karamazov: both + summore incl. maintenance…depends on project type.

Have not heard of that title BUT I think it depends on the company that employs you. From my point of view, workpack engineer should be the person responsible to prepare all documentations related to an awarded contract. From the workscoping tasks to final execution of contract and handing over to the client. Seems to be similar with project planners. If offshore, these guys are the resource person if there are doubts during work execution.

Thank you people for your opinions, will be heading to miri in october…cheers =)

… and you only just find out what your job does, here, in a forum? lol.

That is’t a wp eng’r task lar… Assist C/S = Planner, STQ = Planner, VO or CO = planner… even monitoring = planner… :oops:

workpack engineer are basicly prepare workpack for each work order given by client. they’re actually field engineer. their job scope basicly as what pmartyr said.

from my view, he’s thinking what means by “workpack”?

workpack are basicly files contain necessary document such as material take off list, drawings, equipments estimantion, manpower estimation, etc…, this “file with bunch of documments” a.k.a workpack will signed by everyone involve on preparing it from draftsman, field engineer, project engineer, planning engineer. (who else?) then submit to client. workpack/file with bunch of documents should be ready before proceed any work on site.

what is the job prospect of this position?any future?or just dirty jobs that no one else wanna do…so they leave it to fresh grads to clean it up

Dirty job? go find Mike Rowe… LOL!

become workpack engineer is a good start…eventually, the job will lead to planning engineer position which is very high pay…
