Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
Over 32 years experience in Engineering Management at senior level in Process Engineering, Technology, Operations and Project Management, Licensing, Acquisitions, Alliances and Business Development. Provided proven leadership and vision with broader perspectives and able to manage multiple tasks and personnel on mega projects.

Significant Technology and process design and supervision experience in the field of refining including Crude/Vacuum units, Hydro Processing (All hydrotreating/ HDS and hydrocracking), FCC, Gas Plants, Alkylation, Reforming, and visbreaking including other Gasoline Processes e.g Iso-octene/Iso-octane and all units in Lube refining.

Provides safety audits to meet the safety and environmental requirements to make the plants leader in the social and community. Provides energy conservation audit and solutions to make the organization energy responsible and enhance the profits. Was trained on ICI Hazard and operability methodology in 1978 after the Flexborough explosion and have great depth on Haz & Op studies after that on lot of other jobs using ICI methodology.which does help to look at what if type of analysis on each equipment and great depth and find the solutions.

Patents provide refiners and petrochemical plants innovations to enhance the performance of the units. Experience in safety audits, refinery optimization and heat integration/conservation studies. Worked in UK, Germany, Netherlands and USA, in a team environment and worked with multi cultural groups from North America/Japan/ Korea/China/Middle East/ Europe/ Russia/Iran etc.

Now develops refining technology portfolio and Business development for the Technologies at hand. Filed patents on sulfuric Acid alkylation, Iso-octene/Iso-octane, Ethers technology especially ETBE with wet ethanol and Higher Ethers, All hydrogenations and HDS processes, Bio-Diesel and Octenes. Patents to credit to provide enhanced economics for refineries/petrochemicals/renewable fuels and Oil and gas production with enhanced economics at moderate temperature and pressure with CO2/H2O2 providing continues production and higher well recovery based OOIP. Consulted on catalyst in refining/Petrochemicals, Business Development organization establishment internationally, technology and equipment consultation and NOC training in all the areas.

Experienced in business development in North America, Far East, India, middle East, Europe, Russia, Iran etc.
