    • Engineering, Three stages
    1. Conceptual Engineering studies made by Tecna in Bs. I was a Member of the Repsol Engineering team, supervising and directing mechanical and civil engineering.
    2. FEED Engineering studies by Tecna in Bs.
     I was a Member of the Repsol Engineering team, supervising and directing mechanical and civil engineering
     Constructability workshop
     Routening made possible to save many MM because I change the route in two places, I tried to shorten the Route of a 8” flow line pipeline from 35 Km to 15 Km, but the save not was only many but also time because the older route was trough a ridges, along the road with no space and for the export line 24” line pipe from 30 Km. to a 18 Km.
     This study I performed while I was in Bs As during the FEED, the consultant was carrying out the route through the long way.
     One of my intentions also was to try to make a Micro tunnel with the TBM system Tunnel Boring Machine
     In the bidding document we have two alternatives, with or without tunnel, even the cost it was to be lower Techint believed that the project wouldn’t be on the time because the tunnel will be constructed by others and they were afraid not to comply with the completion date.
     Environmental green pipeline, mainly erosion and sediment control
     Value engineering workshop, save the heat from the turbines and used for the hot oil and other uses in the camp.
