Work Experience

Organisation Role Tenure
Engineers India Limited Worked as Process Engineer for Front End Engineering Design and Detailed Engineering of Oil and Gas Projects across the world. The key responsibilities were to prepare the design packages of various onshore and offshore processing units such as gas sweetening and dehydration, dew point depression and sulphur recovery. The major such projects are for ONGC (Uran), BPCL (Lepetkata) and GSPC (Gujarat). 3 years
