Asset Manager (Technical and Operations)

What did you do at work today? Join CML in this new role and you’ll be able to say that you’re helping to keep a significant share of the UK’s gas supply safely and reliably flowing.

Company:           CATS Management Limited

Salary:                 £attractive + bonus + pension + enhanced benefits + relocation assistance

Based:                Teesside (with UK travel required)

CATS Management Limited (CML) has created this new senior management role to support its growing business. It’s a highly visible role with a successful, ambitious organisation; one that’s consistently outperformed its strategic targets year on year. It’s a major operation and an opportunity for you to apply your asset management expertise. In fact, to be precise, it’s three major operations:

- You’ll be accountable for the efficient running of the CATS (Central Area Transmission System) terminal on Teesside, which receives gas from more than 30 Central North Sea gas fields and safely delivered 5 billion cubic metres of gas in 2017, representing approximately 14% of UK gas production and 7% of demand.

- Your remit will also include liaising with Perenco on operational and technical matters. Perenco operates the Esmond Transportation System (ETS) on behalf of the ETS Operator (NSIP), a 165 kilometre subsea gas pipeline which arrives into the Perenco Bacton gas terminal in Norfolk. NSIP are a wholly owned subsidiary of CML, and CML has an overall equity interest of 65% in ETS.

- CML, in partnership with Premier Oil and Dana Petroleum has recently sanctioned the HGS project (Humber Gathering System) to develop the Tolmount field in the Southern North Sea, connecting into new onshore gas processing facilities at the Easington gas terminal in East Yorkshire. CML will be the Operator of the offshore platform and pipeline to Easington.

Beyond that, these are the main requirements:

- You’ll be advising the directors on technical, operations and engineering matters. We’re looking for someone who can provide clarity on the objectives, plan and budget for our assets and who understands the importance of value creation.

- You’ll be the focal point for all daily technical and operational issues, so multi-tasking skills are essential.

- There’s an enviable safety record to uphold – the CATS terminal has had 15 years without a lost time incident. You’ll need to convince us you can lead by example and set clear expectations to drive a safety-orientated, learning culture.

- You’ll be communicating with many contacts, daily. CML manage assets with partner companies so it’s vital you can not only instil positive behaviours in your immediate colleagues but also deliver results through others. This demands accomplished coaching and influencing skills coupled with a consultative, listening leadership style.

- The job is based in our Teesside office (relocation is included in the salary package). You’ll need to be flexible enough to make frequent trips within the UK including other terminal sites and the CML head office in Aberdeen

If you don’t have an up to date CV, it’s no problem; our ideal person isn’t someone who’s always looking for their next move.

Everybody will receive a response.
