4. REFINERY ONESTI BRANCH (Roumania)

(Oil Refinery and Petrochemical Complex) – 2006 - 2012

Obtaining butadiene – supervisor – period: 2006- 2010

The process involves the extraction of the butadiene from pyrolysis fractions (using a solvent acetonitril) and its purification by distillation and fractionation processes;

The installation produces high purity butadiene through the extractive distillation of C4 fraction, using acetonitrile as extraction solvent. The collateral product resulted from the process is a butane-butene fraction, also known as Raffinate 1.

The C4 fractions are fed into the columns. The butane-butene fraction (Raffinate 1), without acetylene hydrocarbons and butadiene content, is collected from the top of the column. The butane-butene fraction is sent to column in order to retain any remaining traces of solvent, by counter-current washing with water, and then sent into storage, in order to be used in MTBE production.

The product from column bottom reservoir, which contains butadiene, acetonitrile and acetylene hydrocarbons is sent to desorbtion column. Gross butadiene is collected on top of column and after condensation it is sent to the rectification phase.

The extraction solvent is evacuated from the bottom reservoir of the column and after cooling it is sent to extractive distillation phase.

Gross butadiene obtained after the desorption phase is sent to the preliminary rectification phase. Methyl-acetylene is separated on top of the column and eliminated discontinuously in the flare system. From column bottom reservoir, the butadiene is sent to the final rectification phase in columns. High purity butadiene is collected on top of column, condensed and sent into storage.

A fraction containing heavy acetylene hydrocarbons (vinyl-acetylene, ethyl-acetylene), C5 hydrocarbons and butadiene is extracted from the column bottom reservoir.

This installation before annual revisions involve a washing column extraction and rectification of BTX (benzene-toluene-xylene). For this reason the plant was equipped with special storage vessels BTX, pumps and circulation of this fraction with steam heat exchangers for preheating. Storage vessels are equipped with safety systems to prevent fire or explosion (water sprayers, flare connections, etc.).

MTBE and LPG plant – supervisor – period: 2010 – 2011

Obtaining MTBE (increases the gasoline's octane) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) - catalytic reaction followed by rectification - distillation to separate the components;

MTBE is produced by reacting isobutene with methanol over a catalyst bed. The isobutene can be obtained from a number sources: a C4 stream from a steam cracker with the butadiene removed (know as Raffinate-1 which is a mixture of isobutene and 1- and 2-butenes); butene-butane fractions from a catalytic cracker; and n-butane (from LPG) which is isomerised to isobutane and then dehydrogenated to isobutene.

The reaction of methanol and isobutene can take place in either a liquid phase or mixed gas-liquid phase reactor containing an acidic ion exchange resin. The reaction takes place at a temperature of 50-90oC and a pressure of 20 bar.

The MTBE produced is extracted from reaction effluent via distillation, while the unreacted methanol is absorbed by water before it is separated from water via distillation. The recovered methanol is recycled back to the reactor.

Sulphur Recovery Unit from LPG- supervizor - period: 2011 – 2012

- Monitoring the operating parameters and modifying them using DCS according to process requirements. The plant has the goal to remove sulphur components from C3-C4 fraction coming from the top of debutanization column. Controlling the entire process and equipment (such as: absorption column with DEA, pre - washing column (with caustic soda) where the hydrogen sulphide tracks are further removed, extraction column (8 orifice plates) with caustic soda for mercaptan absorption, caustic soda separator vessel and a sand filter, caustic soda regeneration unit composed of a steam pre heater, an oxidation column with graphite rings filling and a caustic soda- residual gases separator).

- Ensuring the continuous and safety functioning of the plant in accordance with designed parameters.

- Performing start up operations and intervention activities in case of shutdown, organizing the activity of supplying with feed stock, catalysts, chemical products and storage of final products.

- Coordinating the training activity of the subordinated personnel regarding HSE and fire fighting regulations to be observed during the shift.

- Checking the quality of the feed stocks and of the final products, adjusting the process parameters to meet the designed specifications.

All unit - Production Superintendent – 2012 – iulie 2014

5.CAROM S.A. (ROMANIA)

Post/Position: Plant polymerization chief

Period: November 1995 - June 2006

Department: Chemical/Petrochemical Industry

The principal task is to operate and manage safely the installations of:

Obtaining synthetic rubber: styrene-butadienic rubber (SBR- 1500, 1502, 1508) and acrylonitril-butadienic rubber (NBR – 28, 33, 38)

SBR produced by emulsion polymerization is initiated by free radicals. Reaction vessels are typically charged with the two monomers (styren and butadyene), a free radical generator, and a chain transfer agent such as an alkyl mercaptan. Radical initiators include hydroperoxides (cumen) in combination with ferrous salts. Emulsifying agents include various soaps. By "capping" the growing organic radicals, mercaptans (dodecylmercaptan), control the molecular weight, and hence the viscosity, of the product. Typically, polymerizations are allowed to proceed only to ca. 70%, a method called "short stopping".

The plant was equipped with special storage vessels cumen, pumps circulation. Storage vessels are equipped with safety systems to prevent fire or explosion (water sprayers, flare connections, etc.).To prevent explosion due to overheating in storage vessels, they were provided with internal cooling coils used as cooling agent calcium chloride to -7 degrees. C

The plant was equipped with special storage vessels for styren, pumps circulation. Storage vessels are equipped with safety systems to prevent fire or explosion (water sprayers, flare connections, etc.).
