Summary of Experiences:

Over 24 years of process, project, operations and safety engineering experience in oil & gas and chemical industries.   These were gained through 6 years with the oleo chemical industries, 6 years with two major engineering consultancies, 7 years with an oil & gas operator, 1.5 years with a leading safety consultancy, and most recently over 2 years with an international EPCM company.

Process engineering experience includes front end and detailed engineering of offshore oil and gas production platforms, FSO, multiphase pipeline transportation, natural gas compression & metering station, crude oil terminal, process plant utilities systems, flare gas recovery systems and refinery vacuum distillation column offgas treatment system. Project management experience includes production information management system, oleo-chemical processing facilities, plant retrofit projects and port bulk storage facilities. Operations experience includes commissioning, start-up and providing technical support to offshore oil and gas facilities. Other project involvement includes field development plan, proposals, procurement, contracts and technology evaluation, etc. Safety engineering experience includes design integrity, technical safety support for offshore platforms and FPSO, risk assessment studies and safety reviews.

Research Project Title: 

Extending total site heat integration methodology to improve the design, operability and safety of the overall site heat recovery network and utilities systems

Research Project Abstract:

Rising fuel costs, depletion of fossil fuel reserves and the pressure of global warming have made more efficient energy solution a necessity. The research focuses on extending current methodology for total site heat integration to improve the design, operability and safety of the overall site heat recovery network and utilities systems. Research gaps identified in the various stages of heat integration, i.e. data collection, data extraction, targeting and design of optimal heat recovery network and utilities systems will be addressed and the methodology extended. The insights gained from the research work will benefit industries especially those with multiple processing units within sites.
