Tom has almost 4 decades of experience, with a foundation in refinery technologies and operations that has helped a wider range of industries improve energy efficiency and develop credible decarbonization roadmaps.
Tom is passionate about improving energy and resource efficiency in refinery and chemical complexes, both to improve short-term competitiveness and to reduce the cost of long-term decarbonization. After >100 site assessments, with selected development and implementation support, assets have consistently realized new opportunities beyond their initial plans. This requires an understanding of process, utility and equipment constraints from both operations and design perspectives, as well as leveraging on successes (or key learnings) from implementation experience at similar sites. He was also involved in a number of hydrogen pinch studies.
In 2021 Tom took early retirement from Shell to join Petrogenium as Principal Consultant.
