Continuous Improvement - Key to Success

Süleyman Özmen is a Vice President, Refining and Chemical Licensing in Shell Global Solution, following roles with IFP, BP Amoco and UOP. He is known for his “Three Pentagon Model”, which provides refiners with a road map for their investment plans. He also packs in over 40 years of sector experience along with numerous qualifications, patents and technical papers. During his career, he has worked through the major challenges faced by the industry such as the unleaded gasoline mandate, the introduction of oxygenates (such as MTBE, ETBE and ethanol) to gasoline, and the trend for ultra-low levels of Sulphur in diesel (ULSD).
EPC: In your presentation at International DownstreamTechnology & Strategy Conference (IDTC) 2017 you are going to talk about continuous improvement. How often do you see it implemented in refineries across the globe and have you seen a peak in the last few years?
S. Özmen: Continuous improvement is a characteristic shared by many of the refiners that are doing well today. The high performers are continuously planning new projects, executing them and optimising their operation. But, crucially, they do not stand still.
