Process and Project engineer with 12 years of experience in oil and gas surface facilities. Involved in all aspects of an engineering and construction, with solid knowledge in project development. Background includes designing facilities and budgeting projects; supervising construction; redesigning specifications to meet feasibility plan; assigning responsibility; ensuring projects meet design specifications and remain within budget; purchasing equipment and necessary materials. University degree in Mechanical Engineering (1996).
Engineering and Construction Lead Engineer
Feb 2006 - Present
Responsible of the engineering, bid preparing, and construction of the new surface facilities required to manage the increasing production of the Reynosa-Monterrey Gas field according with the 2004-2009 development drilling plan.
•Successful construction of 10"x12 Km.gas pipeline on-time, on-budget (4.5 MM US.Dollars) and with no accident safety record.
•More than 20 Km of 3" well flowlines construction and replacement.
•1000 HP compressor unit: leasing and installing on existing plant.
May 2004 - Feb 2006
I worked as a Process Engineer consultant assigned for Repsol YPF to evaluate existing facilities of Reynosa-Monterrey gas field and propose the facilities requirements to assure the production plan 2004-2009.I did the designing, leading engineering process, and follow up the construction of these facilities, including: Flow stations, production manifolds, gas pipelines, well test separators, tanks and flares among others.
•Designing and construction of 84 MM scfd gathering station on time and budget which process80% of the actual production of the field.
•Debottlenecking based on HYSIS and PIPEPHASE simulation software abilities.
Oct 2003 - Feb 2004
Process Engineer Consultant
Intelcon System C.A.
I worked in the development of three documents of Multiphase Flow Measurement Well Testing Best Practices to be used by PDVSA as a guideline for the implementation of this technology in well testing.
Mar 1999 - Jan 2003
