Experienced person required to manage new air separation plant producing oxygen and nitrogen located within and serving a refinery.  Preferred candidates will have operations / maintenance experience in an air separation plant, chemical processing plant, or refinery, plus good communication skills, and a proactive and responsible team approach to problem solving.

UCG home office personnel will assist with diagnosis of operating issues, procurement of specialty items, and scheduling and execution of major maintenance activities. 

The site manager will have lead responsibility for ensuring that the plant is operated and maintained in a manner in compliance with UCG and industry safety standards and procedures, meeting product specifications and customer volume requirements, and attaining and sustaining a high level of plant on-stream / availability. 

Site operations personnel will coordinate their schedules to ensure all plant inspections and routine maintenance actions are performed as scheduled, and duly recorded in plant logs.  At least one local operator must be on call at all times to respond to power outages or other plant production disruptions. Operators will be responsible for calling out other local UCG employees and local maintenance resources as required to maintain safe, reliable and on-spec plant operations.

UIG and UCG offer the challenges and rewards of working in a relatively small company. 

We have a lean and flexible workforce, with fewer overheads and less inertia than our larger competitors.

We value both depth and breadth of experience.

We are seeking qualified people who are self-motivated and responsible, with good communications skills, who take pride in doing their part to accomplish things in a quality manner.
