Conduct risk assessment 
Conduct process equipment performance test, for heat exchangers e.g. reboilers, fin-fan coolers, rotating equipment
Lead performance test for static equipment e.g. column, separator etc.
Lead performance test for fired equipment and converters including catalyst performance. Lead driers break-through test and issue test result report including desiccant replacement plan. 
Lead propane refrigeration system performance test
Evaluate the catalyst recovery performance
Lead solution (DGA / TEG) filtration system performance test. Evaluate DGA/TEG monthly losses 
Issue report covering bottlenecks, deficiencies, and recommendations and follow-up on the implementation
Lead process and equipment optimization studies
Lead feasibility studies
Lead PHA and HAZOP studies
Initiate and coordinate ESA's
Develop implementation plan for critical recommendations
Ensure implementation plan is executed for the system under study and propagated to other applicable systems.
Lead Health, Safety and Environmental studies
Lead Energy Optimization / Conservation studies
Initiate process safety relief audit studies
Lead Water conservation studies
Perform management of change (MOC) 
Verify system operations and performance after implementing the recommendations
