The Company:
Our Client is a major oil and gas refinery in Northwest Ohio.

The Role:
Fircoft is looking for consultants to support the startup and commissioning of a 400 million dollar reformer project onsite. A qualified candidate will have previous experience using UOP technology, particularly with platforming experience Cyclemax. Other strong candidates would have very good commissioning or start-up supervisor experience .The goal here is to complement the operations team with high level people that could do the hands on work in the field. Examples would include Drying line, leak test line, punchlisting.

The Reformer 3 project involves replacing older catalytic reformers and a hydrogen plant with a single state-of-the art 42,000 barrel per day reformer. The unit will increase the refinery’s gasoline production, upgrade current infrastructure and improve overall plant reliability.

The new equipment will also help the refinery meet future environmental regulations. By utilizing the more efficient reforming technology, the refinery expects to reduce regulated air emissions by more than five percent.

The new reformer will require less energy than the two it replaces and operate at lower pressures resulting in higher production of gasoline and hydrogen per barrel of feedstock. The gasoline product will also have lower vapor pressure, also helping the refinery meet future environmental regulations.

Essential Skills / Qualifications:
-UOP platforming experience (Cyclemax).
-Previous experience as an operation supervisor/engineer or process engineer
-Strong commissioning or start-up supervisor experience.
