About Us

At HDR, we specialize in engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services. While we are most well-known for adding beauty and structure to communities through high-performance buildings and smart infrastructure, we provide much more than that. We create an unshakable foundation for progress because our multidisciplinary teams also include scientists, economists, builders, analysts and artists. That's why we believe diversity is our greatest strength. HDR is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and an affirmative action employer.

We believe that the way we work can add meaning and value to the world. That ideas inspire positive change. That coloring outside the lines can illuminate fresh perspectives. And that small details yield important realizations. Above all, we believe that collaboration is the best way forward.

Primary Responsibilities

In the role of Oil and Gas Civil Engineer, we'll count on you to do the following:

Work on multi-disciplined natural gas and liquid pipeline and facility projects as part of a rapidly expanding Oil & Gas program within the United States. Typical projects could include mainline, trenchless installations, and/or associated facilities (i.e. metering / regulation, compression, over-pressure protection, and/or storage).

Associated engineering duties could include reviewing and/or performing linear pipeline design and associated calculations, compile and submit permit applications to local, state, and federal agencies specific to stormwater management and erosion and sediment control, verifying code and standard compliance, quality checks, reviewing manufacturers drawings, preparing procurement specifications and construction documents, bid evaluations, conceptual design studies, report writing, selecting materials and equipment, observing construction, participating in project meetings, and other similar tasks as assigned.

The position will include travel for internal project team meetings, meetings with clients, contractors and vendors. Travel is typically less than 20% for this position but will be based on current workload as well as a candidate's preference.
