Intern – Chemical Engineer – Technical Excellence Department


This is a Full-time position in Aiken, TX posted April 8, 2021.

Position Location: Motiva Corporate Office; Houston, TX

Position Overview:

If you are currently enrolled as a student, Motiva’s paid, assessed Internship Program enables you to get to know our company and immerse yourself in the oil and gas industry. It gives you day-to-day involvement in actual projects selected to match your interests and abilities. A supervisor and mentor will provide you with regular assessments and performance feedback throughout your internship. This is to ensure you get the most from your experience and help you decide if a potential career with Motiva is right for you.

Following completion of a successful internship, you have the potential to be offered a returning internship or full-time role that follows Motiva’s Grad Framework dependent on your graduation date and business need.


The primary role of this assignment is to develop or further progress analytical tools that provide insight into strategic options for the Port Arthur Refinery. It includes, but is not limited to, areas associated with LP modeling and monitoring, process monitoring, logistics debottlenecking and process simulation. Each tool will require the intern to hold engagement sessions with the lead Motiva stakeholder to determine scope, timeline and status communication frequency. Scope and prioritization will determine the number of tools that can be completed during the internship. Upon completion, the intern will present results to a wider audience to acquire feedback and provide ideas on next steps, if any. Upon completion of the Program, the intern should gain familiarity with the way a complex refinery operates and many of the tools used to develop strategic and tactical options. It is expected that during the internship the intern will be exposed to refinery operation meetings, business/economic reviews and technical challenge sessions.
