Work Session - 1
The student will be introduced to the Refinery and assigned to the Project Engineering, Fixed Equipment Reliability (Vessels, Piping, Boilers / Heaters), or Rotating Equipment Reliability (Pumps, Compressors, Turbines) Department. The student will become familiar with the Refinery Organization and Process. The student will work on various projects under the guidance and supervision of a mentor.
Work Session - 2
In this session, the student will transition to assume the responsibilities of one of the other disciplines, as outlined above. The projects assigned will begin to be more technical in nature and less focused on a basic refinery overview.
Work Session - 3
In this session, the student will assume the responsibilities of the third and final role not yet performed. The number and size of projects assigned will increase as well as participation in engineering activities. At this point, the student should be able to function independently on a day-to-day basis, while still utilizing their mentor for technical assistance.
Work Session - 4
In either session 4 or 5, the student will be assigned to support a turnaround, as long as the timing falls in the same window as the co-op session. The student will be expected to provide technical support for Reliability questions and/or assist with the management of capital project field execution.
Work Session - 5
In the final term of the co-op study, the student will be managed as if they are a full-time engineer. The assignment will either involve technical support on a TA, as described above, or independently managing Capital or Reliability projects. The student will be expected to manage their own projects and turn to their mentor or subject matter experts only on an as-needed basis for technical support.
Safety, Health, and Environmental Performance:
Because CITGO expects the Co-Op student to exhibit the personal behavior and technical discipline necessary to help maintain Lemont Refinerys industry leadership position in Safety, Health, and Environmental Performance, each Co-Op student will be given a one week orientation to Safety and Health and a one week orientation to Environmental performance. In addition, throughout work session one, the Co-Op student will be given the training and mentorship needed to meet these expectations. Safety, Health, and Environmental Performance will be a part of the Co-Op students appraisal each work session.
Each work session will be progressive in nature and use the skills that the student acquired from the previous work session. The student will be expected to summarize the activities and accomplishments into a presentation at the conclusion of each work session and present to our Refinery Leadership Team.
