7 Experience with Eo&a during a construction project Gasoline Plant Gasoline Plant Favorable experience with Eo&a’s Knowledge Systems department Favorable experience with Eo&a’s Knowledge Systems department Gasoline plant manuals served as a pilot Gasoline plant manuals served as a pilot Combination of practical experience of KPE operators and Eo&a expertise Combination of practical experience of KPE operators and Eo&a expertise Complete set of detailed process descriptions and extensive operational procedures ( normal, start-up, shut-down, emergency ) Complete set of detailed process descriptions and extensive operational procedures ( normal, start-up, shut-down, emergency )

8 Development of a Plan / Goal Complete detailed process- and procedure manuals for all first line production processes based on Gasoline plant system Complete detailed process- and procedure manuals for all first line production processes based on Gasoline plant system Quicker and more effective training of new employees Quicker and more effective training of new employees Establish uniform operating practices across the various production plants Establish uniform operating practices across the various production plants

9 Plan realisation Eo&a team on the refinery Eo&a team on the refinery 3-4 Operators full time 3-4 Operators full time Structure via Top Down method Structure via Top Down method – Overview total process – Detailed drawings for each paragraph – User friendly – Quick access to required information – Only relevant information – Structure according to sequential phases of production process

10 Sulphur Plant Example Process Description Process Description – General ( approval,legend,symbols ) – Plant ( plot plan, theory, equipment ) – Storage and Utilities Normal Operation Normal Operation – General, Plant, Storage and Utilities Procedures Procedures – General – Start-up – Special – Shutdown – Emergency

11 Experiences Outsourcing Outsourcing – Other priorities, workload own force – Specialism – High quality end product – Involvement own employees increases basis ; acceptation Uniform training requirements; operator exams Uniform training requirements; operator exams Direct availability ; no fragmentation Direct availability ; no fragmentation More effective training new employees More effective training new employees Less mistakes ; quicker start-ups ( less shift change delays ) Less mistakes ; quicker start-ups ( less shift change delays ) Requirement for ISO certification ; demonstration of good control of production process Requirement for ISO certification ; demonstration of good control of production process Knowledge drain avoided Knowledge drain avoided
