Western Cape, South Africa

Oil and Gas Automation Specialist at Shell


I am a process engineer by training and inclination, with a strong grounding in plant automation. My goal on every facility I work on is to optimise operational performance without additional CAPEX. I have in excess of 25 years of experience in the Oil, gas and Chemical industry. almost all of this experience acquired in facility start-ups, debottlenecking and turn-arounds. As a process engineer, I strongly believe that overall facility performance improvement can only be achieved through a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles involved . Rotating equipment, Fired heaters and boilers, distillation columns and reactors are therefore amongst my interests. I have a passion for understanding their interactions and interpreting and predicting their performance.
