Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
A career of over 31 years in Research and Development of petroleum products has required numerous field testing of new ideas and new products that Expert was responsible for developing, formulating and implementing. Designing a field test is perhaps a most important step before conducting it. Expert designed and conducted field testing of such diverse petroleum products such as lubricating greases ( automotive and industrial ), diesel engine oils, and asphalt in road construction projects.

field testing

Expert was responsible for formulating a polyurea line of lubricating greases that were used in critical automotive applications such as constant velocity joints at the time they were new to the automotive industry, packed for life wheel bearing spindle assemblies ( also a new concept at the time). He was also responsible for working with additive suppliers to develop heavy duty diesel engine oils that met and surpassed rigorous industry standards. He formulated polymer modified asphalt products that were used in highway projects in many states particularly when this technology was new.

product formulation

His career of 31 years in R & D in petroleum products area has resulted in numerous product improvements of lubricants, engine oils, and asphalt products to keep BP Amoco product lines up to date and viable.

product improvement

After spending over 31 years in Research and development Department of Amoco, and Bp Amoco, Expert feels biased. But in his view, R & D is a center of universe, coordinating activities between product development, formulation, marketing, manufacturing, customer service, and training of clients. At retirement Expert was associate Research Engineer at BP with background in lubricants, and asphalt.
