Process / Equipment Engineer - Belgium - 2024

What you will do

Antwerp Refinery

In this role at the Antwerp Refinery 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 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.


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.
