Expansion of Gladieux Refinery
- 1974-75 Crude column and Merox treater upgrade to meet military
JP-4 specifications for Indiana Air National Guard. Jerry Roach had
me calculate crude tower by hand, so that I really understood
tray-by-tray impact of e.g. "pumparounds"
Expansion of Ergon Refinery
1976-77 Design/startup of mods under "Old Oil / New
Oil". design handled broad crude range from 26° to 38° API, used
split overhead condensers to cover requirements.
Process assessment of impact on crude column,
overhead systems, pumparounds, with switch from sweet light crude
1978-80 Process design and startup of major
expansion to 25,000 BPSD of Ergon Refining's Vicksburg, MS refinery.
R&D on stable "coal-oil mixture" technology for
pipelining coal suspended in residual oil to Mississippi Power &
