Detail-oriented professional with more than 36 years of experience in the petrochemical industry including experience in operations, inspection and most recently in reliability as an equipment strategy development facilitator.
As an Equipment Strategy Development Facilitator at the ExxonMobil Baytown Complex I facilitated and developed many major turnaround equipment strategies including strategies for their Flexicoking unit, Delayed Coking unit, Fluid Catalytic Cracking units, Butyl unit and several other refinery and chemical plant units. I also facilitated and developed many maintenance based equipment strategies for various areas /units at the Baytown Complex. The development of these equipment strategies included review of all relevant vessel internals and refractory. My experience with piping strategies was limited to facilitating and developing the ExxonMobil Complex piping that could impact the public safety. Much of my ability and experience that I brought to the equipment strategy group was the familiarity with the externals and internals of process equipment, inspection techniques and codes and knowledge of several of the refining processes.
As an Inspection Planner / Inspector at the ExxonMobil Baytown refinery I was responsible for any inspection related activities for several unit areas at different times. In addition to the typical inspection related activities my experience as an inspection planner / inspector included special assignments to work project activities such as the Lubes project in 1999 at the ExxonMobil Baytown complex or assistance during turnarounds at other ExxonMobil site locations.
In Operations I was responsible for the safe and reliable operation of the Lubes units that I was assigned as a post technician or as a console / outside supervisor. My experience in the Lubes area at the Baytown refinery primarily included the Lubes Extraction units, Deasphalting unit and Lubes Tank area. I also had limited exposure on the operation of the MEK and Hydrofining lubes area units.

* Working as a core member of a process, mechanical and technical team for the benefit of the assigned unit area.
* Inspection planner / inspector background in all of the Lubes units and LEFU units with most of my inspection experience at the Flexicoker and Delayed Coker units.
Responsible for the safe and reliable operation of the Lubes units that I was assigned as a post technician or as a sliding console / outside supervisor. My experience in the Lubes area at the Baytown refinery included several unit areas and long term assignments as follows:
