Phone: 979-***-**** LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/mitul-kothari CAREER SUMMARY

Experienced with engineering planning, design development, and execution of Oil & Gas equipment.

New product development proficiency thru product research, design, and prototyping for 5+ years.

Extensive experience in machine design, GD&T, and design applications using static and rotating equipment, aided with structural simulations (Finite Element Analysis – FEA).

Systems Engineering: Component and assembly design layout, with sizing of sub-systems components.

Proven effective blend of sound engineering principles and project management/leadership skills.

A highly result-oriented individual with strong focus on details, work ethics, and multi-tasking abilities. PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Sustaining Design Engineering

Designed product engineering phases, including executing of product line upgrades. Products: Cryogenic Nitrogen and Utility Pumpers, Injector Head, and Coil Tubing Unit.

Improved product reliability, manufacturability (DFM), and serviceability, ensuing life cost efficiency.

Designed hydraulic, pneumatic, electro-mechanical, thermal, and piping systems for oil/gas equipment.

Extensive knowledge of design and weld procedures on fabrication items such as skids and trailers. New Product Development (NPD)

Drove engineering R&D effort for new product launch. Product: Developing a family of Injector Head

(hydraulic drive with motor, gear box, chain, shaft, seal, cast gripper, bearing, & cylinder).

Created new product conceptual designs and decision matrix analysis for feasibility, and executed entire product design cycle including testing, instrumentation, and design validation.

Developed a patent pending prototype for high pressure pump (ASME Pressure Vessel Boiler Code).

Engineered a complex ‘Skate’ (beam) to ensure bearing load profile is optimized for maximum life.

Ensured optimum system thermal performance by thorough analysis of cooling/heat rejection circuits. Project Engineering

Ensured compliance per contractual agreement, schedule, and budgetary guidelines thru coordinated efforts with project managers, and other internal and external stakeholders.

Developed design specs per customer need, estimated project time, schedule, and resource requirements.

Navigated design reviews and executive meetings to achieve project performance, and cost objectives. Created complex 3d CAD models and assemblies, 2d schematics and drawings, and addressed ECRs.

Developed BOMs, P&Ids, test procedures, O&M plans, ECNs, and product service bulletins (PSBs).

Reviewed supplier data for compliance with design codes and standards (ASME, ANSI, ISO, and API). Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Technical point of contact for FEA product root cause analyses of failures (FMEA) and FEA mentoring.

Minimized time to market and realized quicker ROI by Design Optimization thru virtual prototypes.

Structural, dynamic (modal for vibration) FEA stress analysis on skids, lift frames, trailers, and other load bearing members, including submitting FEA technical reports for DNV, ABS compliance.

Designed a custom suction check valve for pump to optimize fluid flow by performing CFD analysis. EMPLOYMENT HISTORY
