Minimization of utility costs for condenser versus desired component split. MUSTANG ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION, LP through contract with Harvest Technical Services, Concord, CA 2007-2009 Chemical Process Engineer/Technical Specialist working with OSBL water projects. Identified problems with basis of design for sour water stripper area and three-phase separation vessels: 1) inadequacy of compositions, 2) lack of consideration of reusing existing pumps and 3) poor routing of existing and new piping. Took the following actions: - Determined from pump curves that existing pumps could be used again by trimming the impellers to allow lowering of the BEP. Results: savings of $20,000. - Determined through field observation and hydraulic calculations that existing piping could be re-used. Results: projected additional savings of $40,000. - Created BFDs, P&IDs, PFDs and process & equipment Data Sheets for Piping, Drafting and Purchasing issued for Design (IFD) Issued for Approval (IFA) and issued for construction (IFC). - Researched proper piping specifications of OSBL Clean Fuels Sour Water Project. - Created IPPDs (interconnecting piping process diagrams) and plot plans to explain project phases. Provided consulting services to and shared insights with management on sequencing of sour water MOC issues. - After observing that pump specifications on existing refinery P&IDs were incorrect, obtained accurate pump curves; then corrected them on refiner’s P&IDs. - Using HYSYS, modeled three-phase separators system for sour water area. Determined drum sizes, plot plan layouts and new and existing piping diameters for new separator drums.

Modeling crude column design using HYSYS for Flying J. - Maintained ongoing communication with client; incorporated client’s changes into P&IDs. - Determined proper sizing and capacity for unit operations on PFDs; calculated flow rates on existing and new design operations on PFDs. - Gave talk on Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and HAZOP analysis to our process group. Demonstrated how analysis aided in better design of OVHD DIB column. - Sizing columns, KO drums, TEMA heat exchangers and creation of process data sheets for unit operations for OSBL projects. Placed tie-in tags in the field, ensuring that they corresponded to P&IDs. SHELL OIL COMPANY through contract with Worley Parsons, Martinez, CA 2006-2007 CAD Designer/Coordinator/Operator supporting Process, Piping, Structural, Electrical and Chemical Engineering PEI Groups. Worked on EtOH piping project; assisted in piping design, MTO and BOM. Corrected material selection on various piping projects. Learned and mastered Rebis Autoplant for aiding Piping Group. Served as liaison by mediating a constructive dialogue between Process and Piping Groups to reach agreement on purchase and design decisions, thus facilitating an amicable project completion. When project closure was delayed because of specialty drawings not being completed, designed and maintained a tracking system that interfaced with customer (Shell Oil), tracking, measuring and ensuring progress. Performed safety audits on contractors in refinery setting. Made safety recommendations and provided corrective actions where applicable. Observed that some designs were “out of spec.” or that they presented illogical or dangerous HAZOP scenarios. Suggested P&ID and PFD design changes based on field observations to correct the process issues, thus aiding in maintaining the integrity of the process design. Interfaced with process design group and helped complete PFDs. Trained co-worker on construction issues affecting design criteria, resulting in greater acceptability of project design by application disciplines. Performed field verification and updated P&IDs as field-built; re-issued drawings as “As Builts,” creating a more accurate and more easily interpreted picture of plant unit operations. Submitted signed copies of P&IDs to document control for construction phase of projects. Updated electronic files, which were deliverables, to the client’s database. AQUAPRO/WATER MANAGEMENT, Martinez, CA 2005-2006 Technician/Water Chemist In an environment with continually changing requirements, planned and organized a calling program to meet customers’ needs. Performed calculations for sizing cooling towers, boiler systems and chiller systems. Provided low-cost alternatives to client needs. Inspected and tested unit operations; trained clients in use of steam and hot water boilers. Recommended operating procedures and chemical products usages. Tuned field controllers using vendor controllers and Ziegler/Nicholson approach. Advised clients in use of A/D converters for data collection from these devices. Calculated transfer functions and modeled PID controller systems using MatLab, Maple and Excel. TIMEC, Vallejo, CA 2003-2005 Hazardous Materials Lead Safety/Chemical Engineer Following OSHA regulations to run decontamination process/program area, maintained proper PPE in hazardous arsenic MEA area for S/D T/A project. Completed course work to meet government standards. Directed operation that maintained PPE and OSHA standards for 50 workers. Ran computer software to ensure ANSI and other standards for respirator fitting; fit tested workers for full face and half-face respirators. Became familiar with required documentation for hazardous projects – maintenance of hazardous areas from inception to completion – in a refinery setting.
