Confidential, Linden, NJ

District Engineer

Responsibilities:

  • Established procedures for project implementation designed to improve communication between departments resulting in successful project implementation.
  • Developed and mentored new engineers in pipeline operation and control resulting in better designed implementations.
  • Represented Field Operations on the Manual Review Committee responsible for approving updates to the Emergency, Maintenance, and Operating manuals providing experience and expertise ensuring policies and procedures were safety oriented.
  • Developed query tools to access SCADA liquid measurement data identifying locations with deficient measurement reliability.
  • Utilized SCADA DNA system as a power user to monitor operations identifying opportunities for improvement resulting in improved safety and reduced operating costs.
  • Provided regular Operations Controller and mentoring ensuring the pipeline controllers were confident in their ability to recognize and react to abnormal operating conditions.
  • Reacted quickly during a power outage emergency obtaining portable generators and temporary power feeds resulting in the 500,000 bpd facility only being out of service for 24 hours.

SCADA Supervisor / Manager

Confidential, PA

Responsibilities:

  • Created and implemented an annual Confidential class for the pipeline controllers resulting in better trained and knowledgeable controllers.
  • Learned all aspects of the Valmet SCADA system including architecture, database, display development and reporting resulting in improved vendor project implementation and a highly stable control system.
  • Integrated three antiquated pipeline control systems into the central SCADA system (roughly 50 sites) improving control, reducing maintenance costs and improving system reliability.
  • Implemented a redundant control system to serve as a backup control system including engineering controls to ensure the systems are in synch and regularly tested improving system reliability.
  • Developed and implemented process implementation procedures (MOC) for the team to provide reliable system configurations / modifications while ensuring that the Operations group was aware of the changes before installation resulting in fewer miscommunication situations.
  • Designed and implemented the automation philosophy utilizing a combination of SCADA and PLC functions to enable a Controller to remotely control terminal swings resulting in the ability to not attend batch changes at delivery terminals resulting in lower manpower costs.
  • Integrated a new liquid Leak Detection system into the SCADA system and designed a unique display that enabled a Controller to know which pipelines had activity on them and whether that activity was normal or not enabling the Controllers to operate multiple pipelines in a safe and efficient manner.
  • Managed the transition through the year 2000 without event.
  • Developed Documentation Standards to ensure that naming conventions were followed, alarm severity was standardized and display development resulting in a user friendly system that was consistent across areas.
