Process/Chemical Engineering

Location
Houston, Texas.
Experience

I have nine years’ experience in process engineering design duties (mainly downstream) of grassroots and revamped facilities in the LNG Cryogenic, oil and gas and petrochemicals industries. I have expertise in the use of commercial process simulators such as PRO II, HYSYS and Aspen as well as good knowledge of ProMax, AFT Fathom and Arrow and knowledge related to relief study and safety valve sizing calculations. I am also skilled in the development of process flow diagrams (PFD) and piping & instrumentation diagrams (P&ID), with experience in the development of heat and material balances, preparation of instrument process datasheets for pressure, temperature, flow and level variables and preparation of process specifications for control valves. I am able to generate equipment data sheets, process lines list, prepare equipment lists and develop detailed hydraulic calculations for line sizing and pressure profile.
